Today all businesses are aware that they must backup their data to prevent loss. We see everywhere that data is the most valuable asset that your business has. The rise of ‘big data’ is resulting in unprecedented levels meaning all businesses must carefully consider their options as it becomes increasingly difficult to recover following a large data loss.

Perhaps the devilishly complex Tower of Hanoi strategy is more your thing? If you actually have a clue what I’m talking about then there’s a good chance that at some point in your career you have been responsible for backup, probably using a tape drive or some other type of removable media.
