Data backup solutions
Your company data stored on your computers and servers is precious and is needed in order for your company to trade. What would happen if you arrived at work one day and discovered all your data had been lost? Could you continue to run your business? The answer is probably either that your business would have to close, or at least, that continuing to run it would be very difficult.
There are a number of ways your data can be lost, and they all happen without warning.
- Data is stored on a hard drive or solid state drive. These are usually very reliable, but they are not perfect and can sometimes fail.
- Building fires are thankfully a rare occurrence, but when they do happen, they destroy everything, including all your precious company data. Having to find new premises to trade from is a big enough headache, but if your data isn't securely backed up and safe, you probably won't have the information you need to continue your business.
- It is possible, despite all your best efforts to protect yourself, that you could be hit by a virus or malware attack, compromising your valuable data, or at least making it difficult or impossible to access.
Taking a backup, or copy, of your data, ideally every night, then taking the backup off site the next day is easy to do and means you will always have a copy of your data right up to the end of the previous day. In the event of disaster striking, you will be able to restore your precious data and continue your business with little disruption.
