The Power Systems Capacity BackUp (CBU) offerings are designed to support our client's disaster recovery and high availability needs. The Capacity BackUp offerings recognize that true high availability or disaster recovery solutions require at least two systems. If one system is not available the other one "takes over". The CBU offering is designed to give our clients flexible and economic options for deploying business continuity operations.
