Proper backups are a core component of your business. They make up the largest sections for your Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans. Without them, your business and its data is at risk and, if data is lost or stolen, your business will most likely not survive.
The costs and benefits of protecting your data far outweighs the risks involved with losing it, and planning these backups correctly can save both time and money.
A brief overview of some of the services we offer to secure your data.
Local backups are backups that are only performed on-site. They rarely have multiple copies and are considered the "least-safe".
The benefit of local backups is that recovering files is generally a far quicker process than recovering them from an online or remote location.
Cloud backups are considered the most secure way of protecting your data as the information is stored away from your premises.
Potential local disasters, such as earthquakes or fires, will not damage data stored in the cloud. Your data will always be available for recovery, but could possibly take longer than a local backup.
Hybrid backups are a combination of local and cloud backup systems, keeping local and cloud versions of your data.
This isn't always needed and can cost more, but it does give you the best of both plans, allowing quick recovery of files and the safety of offsite data.
