In recent years, there has been a revolution in disaster recovery. Before, disaster recovery was often a frustratingly slow process that produced costs that were perhaps even more frustrating to businesses. Now, with cloud computing, disaster recovery is a much faster and cheaper process. This is possible because cloud computing works by utilizing virtualization, which packages an operating system, apps, patches, and data into a single bundle. This bundle can be easily transferred across data centers in just minutes.

Traditional, non-virtualized disaster recovery approaches required that all the patches for apps be reinstalled before data could be restored. Cloud computing makes this time consuming process obsolete.

One of the leading cloud computing companies in the area of disaster recovery is eFolder. Founded over a decade ago in 2002, the company offers a wide array of products with a focus on data protection and disaster recovery, and they also offer security solutions that prevent spam, viruses, spyware, and phishing attacks.

Maintaining security is a top priority for businesses; eFolder takes every step possible to ensure data integrity. They use end-to-end 256-bit checksums to label data with cryptographically verifiable identifiers. These identifiers are used to verify the authenticity of a particular block of data. If a particular block is found to be corrupted, it is automatically replaced with a redundant copy of that block made before corruption.

The cloud computing community has given much recognition and praise to the quality of eFolder’s products. In 2007, 2010, 2011, and 2013, eFolder was listed in the list of Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Products published annually by Solution Providers and Everything Channel editors. eFolder was also named as the 2013 HTG Sponsor of the Year. HTG is an international organization composed of more than 300 IT Solution Providers.
