Data backup solutions
Your company relies on the data stored on your computers and servers in order to trade. Imagine arriving for work one day and finding all your company data gone. Would your business still be able to function? The answer is likely to be that continuing with your business would be very difficult and it might even have to close.
Data loss can occur at any time in a number of different ways and with little or no warning at all.
- The hard drive or solid state drive in your computer holds all your data. While these are very reliable, they are not perfect and can stop working.
- Fire is another, thankfully rare, way you can lose your company data. If your building is destroyed by fire, any data stored on any computers or servers in the building is likely to be lost too. A fire leaves you with the not inconsiderable problem of finding somewhere new to run your business from. Losing your data as well means that, while you might be able to get new premises, you won't have any records to continue trading with.
- Your data can be lost or, frustratingly, be rendered inaccessible by malware and viruses. While you will of course be taking precautions against viruses, there is still the possibility of one getting through and damaging your data.
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.
