Every organization should have a data backup plan that gets a copy of this valuable information off-site every day in case of a disaster.
Many organizations use tapes or other media for this purpose. The problem is that tape backups are expensive, time-consuming and often unreliable. Then there is the issue of getting those tapes or other media off-site each night. Then, bringing in the next days media the following morning.
Another solution is to replicate your data to another company owned location. While this is a good solution, the on-going cost to purchase and maintain two sets of servers, plus the price of an adequate data line between these locations can be overwhelming. For most companies, the data volume just keeps growing and growing, often outgrowing your tape or replication solution.
