nScaled joined Spiceworks three months ago. Cool crowd, great discussions, and good spirit of competition between vendors. Acronis, of course, has been there much longer and has a very strong following. It’s interesting to observe the two different audiences – backup, and disaster recovery. But are they really so far apart? This is what I’ve been thinking when I saw a question posted by Mary – and felt that this is my opportunity to connect the two crowds, and perhaps explain how close they are.
The question was: Business Continuity vs. Data Backup: Which Are You Offering?
Excellent question. There is a lot of confusion out there re. what is BC (business continuity), and what’s the relationship between backup, DR (disaster recofery), etc… Let me answer – we are the leading DR vendor, so we know “at least something” about it :-)
