Organizations often view an investment in DR as insurance, but that perspective may blind them to the returns available from investments in advanced DR solutions.

Expenditures on disaster recovery (DR) solutions are frequently considered a cost of doing business, not an investment. Or they may be viewed as insurance policies that, hopefully, will never be called on to pay out claims. From this perspective, it's difficult to justify more than the minimum expenditure that will provide "good enough," but not necessarily optimal, protection against losses due to a disaster.
