Default Coping with a Serious Data Loss

Data loss is an expensive reality. It's a hard fact that it happens more often then users like to admit. A recent study by the accounting firm McGladrey and Pullen estimates that one out of every 500 data centers will experience a severe computer disaster this year. As a result, almost half of those companies will go out of business. At the very least, a data loss disaster can mean lost income and missed business opportunities.

Remember one of the jobs I have many years ago when we had three persons in the Company responsible in rotation to take home copy of the backups. There were two backups, one stayed at the work location another was away. When you can't afford the second loss, you will have the decipline in making sure it won't happen again.
