Backing up data is crucial for the seamless operation of any business. If data is lost, vital information that is used for analysis or record keeping could be lost. This causes further issues when it comes to creating projections, or could even affect the customer service level. Without proper backup, there is little that can be done to salvage data once it is gone. We have several backup options for you to choose from so that you can be sure that your information is safe in case of a data emergency. The loss of data can be a serious blow to any company.
Remote Backup Service
Our remote backup service allows your business or personal data to be stored in a location that is offsite. In case of physical damage to the data location such as a weather event or other catastrophe, data can be stored in another location that is unaffected by the same event. Similarly, data can also be stored in the cloud. This adds an even thicker layer of protection to your most vital information. You can trust that our remote backup service will maintain the integrity of your data by encrypting it and only allowing authorized users to access your data.
There are many ways in which the backup of data can be managed. Online backup is highly accessible and can be a very fast way to recover lost data. Data can be stored to a local drive or other form of hardware that is can be accessed by authorized users. Offline storage may require some plugging in or transportation of the data, which has limits in time and accessibility. Data can also be stored at an off-site recovery facility where it is usually protected from the elements and is temperature regulated.
Aside from the location of the data, there are many methods associated with how the data is protected and backed up. Data can be stored on hard drives and the like, but this is not automated and lacks efficiency. Complete data copies can be made at certain intervals of time in order to preserve it. You can also choose to backup data based on changes made to files. This means that as soon as changes are made, they are immediately backed up. Or, changes to data can be saved and then backed up at a separate, predetermined interval in time.
The kind of data that you are using that requires backing up will also be a determining factor in the method chosen to protect it. Copies of files and file versions including deletes can be made that are easily stored and restored when needed. At times it is necessary to use other methods such as extracting entire file systems. One of our data backup and extraction professionals can help you set up a system that works best for your needs.
