StrongBox uses WAN replication to meet the need for offsite copies of data.
What is WAN replication?
A wide area network (WAN) simply refers to a telecommunications network that links devices across a large area, such a city or regional offices. For example, remote employees that connect to their company email servers do so over a WAN. WAN replication is the process of transferring data over a wide area network. A business might need to transfer data offsite for protection or replicate to a partner location for collaborative projects. With WAN replication, data can be moved over a network, rather than by sharing physical media (like a USB flash drive). StrongBox products leverage WAN replication to meet the need for offsite data copies or disaster recovery.
