The Importance of Data Backup

Added: Thursday November 7th 2013 at 08:26:36 AM

Every business is built on data. Data acquisition, processing and utilization have increased massively in the past 5-6 years; from customer and financial data, to proprietary data directly related to your business.

What would happen if you lost access to that data?

We’re all busy. And when I get busy, the first thing I put off is preventative measures. After all, it’s not the hottest fire commanding my attention at that moment. Thinking ‘my computer won’t crash today’ or that a server will last a while longer, or that a shocking event won’t occur, such as a fire, flood or even an extended power outage… any of these scenarios could cripple your business.

But even with that knowledge, scaring yourself into Data Backup is not the way to motivate you (or anyone else). That’s why thinking about Data Backup as an operating function of your business, (set it and forget it) is one of the most effective ways of protecting yourself, and your business.

Meeting with an IT company and assessing your business needs can help determine the best solution for you, and can take the worry about the actual backup itself. By identifying critical applications, key services and the importance of data to your systems, a reputable company can assess your risk tolerances and recommend the best solutions for you including: how often to schedule your backup, how quickly you would need to recover the data from your backup in order to operate your business, the equipment needed for your backup (which includes: remote/offsite backup, redundant backup, or whether to migrate to Cloud computing and backup) and the different types of backups that need to be scheduled and when; such as full backups, incremental or differential backups.

By outsourcing your backup needs, you can ensure that your data is being stored regularly with a recovery plan in place. In the event a server goes down, a virus enters your network or a disaster occurs; your business can still operate with minimal disruption and minimal data loss.
