Data backup solutions Chesterfield
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.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
