As organizations of all sizes move to 24/7/365 operation, the need for high availability storage continues to grow in importance. For decades, vendors have marketed solutions that offer business continuity and disaster recovery but achieving the holy grail of zero recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) has been elusive – and incredibly expensive in the few cases it has been achieved.

- Results of ESG validation in
- Ease of deployment
