Preparing SMBs when disaster strikes

Determining an organization’s tolerance for loss is a key first step in preparing for disaster recovery. The cost a business incurs to maintain a suitable disaster recovery plan depends largely on how closely it relies on IT for its revenue.

This is true for any sized business from the large online vendors such as Zalora.com or Xinmsn.com to SMEs with a small online cart.
