Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) is a critical component in every network’s architecture. It is combination of data backup and disaster recovery solutions that work cohesively to ensure a company’s business continuity. Today’s BDR solutions provide secure, fast, monitored, continuous backup and rapid data restoration through cloud-based architecture.
Data backup and disaster recovery are not the same, but both are necessary for long-term business continuity. The main difference between the two is that a backup is consistently taken in order to be ready to restore data after a catastrophe, breach, or another adverse impact event has occurred. On the other hand, data recovery is the act of retrieving lost or damaged data to its original, pre-event state.
