As an IT professional at a small or midsized business, you know what’s at stake if a disaster—natural or human-made—strikes your organization. And you understand the value of a Disaster Recover as a Service (DRaaS) plan. But how do you convince top executives to invest in a DRaaS plan, especially if they believe DRaaS plans are too expensive?
In this webcast, tech journalist James A. Martin and Tom Powers from Carbonite will explain how IT professionals at SMBs can get executive buy-in for a DRaaS plan. You’ll learn about:
- The costs of downtime, data and productivity loss, and other adverse effects on a business that a disaster can trigger;
- The costs of maintaining co-locations, secondary data centers, and other traditional forms of backup;
- How a DRaaS plan eliminates or minimizes these and other costs;
- What a typical DRaaS plan costs, and how to determine ROI;
- How to talk to business decision makers to get the disaster recovery service your organization needs.
