      Its been proven time and again that the ROI for Disaster Recovery is met as soon as you experience an outage. It is also known that a majority of companies that face an outage without a DR strategy never fully recover from the loss of data, time and revenue. So, why is it that, knowing what we know about DR, many companies STILL do not have a DR strategy in place?

      Traditionally, the time and money that it takes to implement a DR solution have roadblocked businesses from investing in DR. Long story short -- they say it's too expensive.

      Not anymore!

      With NewCloud Replication, powered by Veeam Cloud Connect Replication, DR is made easy! Cloud computing has changed the disaster recovery game, allowing companies to build out DR solutions without having to invest in the capital intensive on-premises infrastructure. Additionally, by outsourcing DR to a cloud service provider, companies are no longer restricted by their existing IT staff and can deploy a DR solution much faster.
