data. They may say it’s too complicated or too expensive. And they it let it slide…hoping
that at the end of the day, they still have the data with which they started. Even if they back up their data, a lot of companies find getting it back can be problematic: fewer than one-third of companies with a disaster recovery plan have ever bothered testing it to make sure it still works.

Today, Windstream Hosted Solutions introduces a new approach: leveraging the power of cloud computing and our proven experience to help you protect and recover your information. DRaaS is designed to help companies like yours replicate your critical servers and applications to the cloud, so that
you can protect your applications and data, and get them back precisely when you need them most.
