Data backup solutions Ashby-de-la-Zouch
Your company data stored on your computers and servers is precious and is needed in order for your company to trade. Imagine arriving for work one day and finding all your company data gone. Would you be able to continue with your business? The answer is likely to be that continuing with your business would be very difficult and it might even have to close.
You can lose your business data in a number of ways, and all of them can happen completely unexpectedly.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
The solution to all these and other threats to your data is to make regular backups and keep the backups off site. Ideally, a backup should be taken every night and taken off site the following day. At worst, if this is done, you will only lose one day's data in the event of a loss of data.
