Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) Explained
Data backup and disaster recovery (DR) are two very important and functionally different components of any layered IT security strategy. Some MSPs may think that their backup software solution will also protect their clients in the event of a technology disaster, however this may not be the case. For MSPs searching for a backup and disaster recovery software solution, it's important to understand the two terms and how they work together.
Disaster Recovery vs. Data Backup
Data backup is the act of storing a copy of files or data to a separate storage location so that in the event those files are lost or damaged, they can be restored. Disaster recovery is the act of restoring those files and data. Although each is a different business continuity and IT security solution, many companies are combining data backup and disaster recovery into one comprehensive solution for easier and faster restores.
MSPs and IT professionals need backup software that can keep up with the pace of their clients' businesses. With SolarWinds Backup from SolarWinds MSP (formerly LOGICnow), you can safeguard data and reduce backup time by up to 80%.
