Published October 05, 2016 by

single point of failureData protection is nothing less than business protection, and to be effective it must be as nearly invincible as possible. Yet even the most technically sophisticated organizations, those familiar with the fine points of data backup, can make a particularly dangerous mistake: not noticing a single point of failure.

Sometimes one size fits all. And sometimes it doesn’t. With disaster recovery, it never does.
