To help meet the requirements of your business continuity plan, DoubleTake/Carbonite Backup allows you to back up to any remote disaster recovery site. This capability also saves the cost and administrative hassle of backing up branch offices in the field.

DoubleTake/Carbonite Availability Software for Real-time Replication to a Remote Disaster Recovery Site
