It's very easy for us. For most companies today, I think it should be a pretty simple, effective way of getting some sleep at night and not worrying about backups.

In addition, Levine Financial no longer needs to be concerned with costly maintenance and rotation of tape backups, but rather relies on Storagepipe’s state-of -the-art backup systems and facilities."

..."Time is a precious commodity, and IT needs to understand and communicate to finance the time it will require IT to be involved in a recovery. This time can be extensive and therefore be an unwelcome distraction from the many other enterprise-wide projects in which they may be involved throughout the year. IT must also communicate that the costs of disasters can have a profound impact on other projects." – Steven Rodin, Storagepipe Solutions
