Techopedia Explains Remote Office/Branch Office Backup and Recovery

Typically, ROBOs do not have experienced IT personnel and/or the hardware and software present to deal with system failures or disasters and implement recovery procedures. Unfortunately, IT organizations do not frequently test their ability to recover data, especially at ROBO locations. For this and other reasons, backup and recovery is often problematic in nature and tricky to effectively address.
