    With the growth of technology, the way businesses work is changing rapidly. Now more than ever, businesses require reliable network connectivity and access to resources because in a 24/7 culture, availability and reliability of online services is the key to success.

    The term ”redundancy” is often confused with backup. The purpose of a redundancy is to prevent any disruption of system operation in the case of a technical failure or disaster by maintaining a continuity of service.

    To guarantee the uptime of the total IT environment redundancy of data and internet connectivity is very important. After all reliable network is what you want. Consider a redundant solution to ensure that your mission critical data is stored in more than just one place, allowing you to recover if something happen to your data.

    Why is high availability important?

    ·        Business continuity
    The impact of data loss can be huge. Unexpected outages can lead to situations from which it may be difficult to recover. With a backup solution along with a full business continuity and disaster recovery plan, you can avoid various threats to your data.

    ·        Reputation
