Backup is not disaster recovery. Imagine a fire destroying your server room including on-site backups. A multi-tiered approach can not only save time in recovering data but also help defend against threats like crypto malware, by providing on-site and off-site backup and disaster recovery to our Tier III Canadian datacenter. Bare metal backup differs from the traditional backup in that a snapshot of the entire server is taken - files, application and the OS. This copy allows a near-instantaneous restore to a replacement physical, virtual or cloud server with near-zero RTO (Recovery Time Objective) and an RPO (Recovery Point Objective).
