Data backup has always been important for businesses. The data that your business generates and stores is the lifeblood of your business. Not only do you want to secure the data but you also want to make sure that the work performed by your employees is being secured on a daily basis. There’s nothing worse for a company to be completely down and unable to work because their data has either become corrupted or held ransom by a cyber attacker. In some cases, if there was no proper data backup and no disaster recovery plan in place, all of the data is lost! This can put the company at risk of going out of business. It also affects that businesses reputation to it’s customers. The last thing that a business needs to worry about is how to bounce back from data loss or corruption. In order to ensure this does not happen, a proper backup and disaster recovery service plan should be implement. With this in place, a proactive measure will be created to verify that no data loss occurs. It is always best practice to save all data to a local location, as well as to a off-site, cloud location. The local location is your first and primary measure to restore the lost data. The cloud off site data backup is your secondary measure that you will use if the primary is unavailable. However the secondary will take much longer to restore. Many systems, depending on the specifics, will choose to backup via an image based backup. This will allow the entire system to be restored to a similar or dissimilar hardware very quickly. Making sure the data is properly backed up is crucial but it is also imperative to have a plan in place to restore the data quickly and minimize the downtime of the company.
