Data backup solutions Kimberley
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 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.
- 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.
