Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Data Center Solutions Mitigating Risk

Many Companies Never Recover from a Major IT Disaster

About 50% of businesses that suffer from a major IT disaster without a disaster recovery plan in place never reopen for business, according to a recent AMA report. In fact, the Ponemon Institute estimates the cost of downtime to be $7,900 per minute, and this number is expected to go up.
