The goal of Cloud DR is to provide an organization with a way to recover data and/or implement failover in the event of a man-made or natural catastrophe.

You can have all your in-house services replicated in the cloud to recover within an acceptable time for your business. Data can be synchronized on daily basis to make sure you don’t lose any records. These are cost effective solutions suitable for small to medium businesses.
