Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO)

Definition - What does Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) mean?

A remote office/branch office (ROBO) is an office that is located in a different or remote geographical area. An organization may have a main office, as well as remote offices in another city, country or continent.

ROBO data system storage and recovery is a common and problematic organizational issue.

Techopedia explains Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO)

An organizational scope includes a component for ROBO activities. However, many ROBOs lack experienced IT personnel, adequate backup software/hardware and/or system backup and recovery capabilities. Additionally, IT organizations do not perform comprehensive data recovery capability testing on a frequent basis - especially at ROBO locations. Thus, backup and recovery are problematic and must be carefully addressed.
