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

Techopedia Explains Remote Office/Branch Office

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.
