DR describes the ability of an organization to recover from a disaster. Disasters can range from something as simple as a local power outage to a major hurricane like Superstorm Sandy. Businesses have differing levels of tolerance when it comes to downtime, but all businesses are affected to a certain extent in the event of a disaster. Hosted solutions have inherent advantages when it comes to DR, especially when geographic redundancy is employed. It is also important to look at resiliency at the customer premises, where multiple, diverse internet connections can provide better uptime results.
