    This is the amount of time that it will take you to initiate the recovery / restore process
  • Are you recovering data from a local network or the cloud?
    This affects the speed at which the data is recovered
Downtime Costs
  • How many employees would be affected if the critical systems failed?
  • What is the average wage of an employee using these systems?
  • What is the overhead cost of these employees?
    Taxes, benefits, insurance, vacation pay, equipment, etc.
