A survey of US-based managed service providers by Easy Office Phone has looked at the top trends in small to medium sized businesses (SMBs).

According to the research SMBs will show greater demand for disaster recovery solutions over the coming 12 months.

Until recent years, there was a perception that disaster recovery solutions were only needed at the enterprise level – the vast majority of SMBs were uninterested in investing the resources needed to develop and test disaster recovery procedures. SMBs are now adopting server virtualization at a faster pace than enterprises, however, and are thus realizing the need to have a disaster recovery plan in place for their assets.

SMBs are showing more receptiveness to disaster recovery investments with a focus on building truly innovative business continuity solutions.
