This research focuses on how zero loss of data-in-flight leads to certainty of data integrity. This in turn leads to simplified recovery and significantly reduces the chances of IT disasters

"Failure to recover from failure is the root cause of most IT disasters. Failures will always occur in IT systems. The challenge is ensuring data is not lost, even when the recovery systems are located far from the production systems.

A critical part of recovery from failure is ensuring data recovery and integrity. When a recovery system is a long distance from a production system, there is 'data-in-flight.'
