So why do you need additional copies of your data? In a disastrous incident it is expected that the data center or technology is gone and no longer functioning, so your basic responsibility is to restore the technology environment to an operational level within a prescribed timeframe. Remote data replication is the process of making a "copy" or backup of your data to a remote site.
Without this data you would have no historical data to process. Having a copy or replica of the data gives you the chance to at least pick up close to when you were impacted by the interruption, once the data is restored on comparable equipment. https://searchdisasterrecovery.techtarget.com/answer/Why-is-remote-data-replication-important-for-disaster-recovery-scenarios
What is Cloud Replication?
Cloud replication is the process of storing data information in a virtualized storage center that is accessible from a multitude of different computers. With a proactive and secure cloud replication system, you are not only protecting your IT infrastructure, but ensuring that recovery time, a recovery point, and the cost expectations of your business are managed in the event of a disaster.
