"We needed to ensure that, in the event of an emergency, all of our data could be restored quickly. TDPS is simple to operate and has consistently helped us replicate our data across multiple points," he said.
Topio provides companies like RedEnvelope with data protection that facilitates a rapid, reliable and comprehensive recovery of mission-critical data within minutes meeting any distance requirements, and supporting real-time data currency for optimized recovery.
