Think of your disaster recovery plan as an insurance policy for your data and business should something out of your control happen. Nowadays, most of companies are aware of the pain points of traditional backup and are consequently adopting the clouds backup and recovery which is more reliable due to new technologies. Below we are going to study the clouds tools available for back up and recovery.

Multi-Regional Storage data has the most availability compared to other storage classes.
