At a much lower cost than traditional backup/recovery environments in the past.

Disaster recovery: How is your business set up to survive an outage?

Network World

Dark disaster recovery vs. active architecture. Security experts say how individual companies choose to save their data in anticipation of an outage depends on how long they can survive before the “lights” are turned back on. Asynchronous vs synchronous. Active/active vs. active/passive. No setup is objectively better or worse than another. The best one for you primarily depends on your level of tolerance for what happens when the server goes down.
