Data is generally regarded as a company's first or second most valuable asset - right on par with people. Equally important with backing up data is the ability to recover that same data and recover and restore it in a timely fashion to keep a business up and running.

Some interesting stats about common business backup practices:

   60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster

   60% of all data is held on PC Desktops and laptops

   Simple drive recovery can cost upwards of $7,500 and success is not guaranteed

   40% of Small and Medium Sized Businesses don't back up their data at all

   40 - 50% of all backups are not fully recoverable and up to 60% of all backups fail in general
