Because of the expense of re-creating hardware and software environments for recovery plans, most enterprises must consider the advantages and disadvantages of operating their own recovery site or using third-party services — i.e., a hosted recovery site.

This is another area where the enterprise’s business practices and recovery requirements may override cost factors.
