Disaster recovery for BMC Helix ITOM

Configure disaster recovery to back up your data, save it in the MinIO on the production site, and then replicate the data onto the MinIO on the standby site at scheduled intervals. 
When a disaster occurs, you can failover to the standby site and continue your operations with minimal or no impact.
