SearchStorage covered the recent findings on cloud-based backup and storage from research firm Forrester. The disaster recovery reporter called online backup a top priority, adding:

Improving disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity (BC) planning is the top spending priority for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and the No. 2 priority for enterprises, according to a recent survey of IT decision-makers conducted by Forrester Research.
More than 70% of the 1,228 SMB budget decision makers in the Forrester’s “Global IT budgets, priorities, and emerging technology tracking survey Q2 2010” said upgrading disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities is likely to be a top technology priority over the next 12 months.
