Data backup solutions Clay Cross
Your company relies on the data stored on your computers and servers in order to trade. What would happen if you arrived at work one day and discovered all your data had been lost? Would your business still be able to function? The answer is probably either that your business would have to close, or at least, that continuing to run it would be very difficult.
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.
- 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.
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.
