Data backup solutions West Bridgford
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.
You can lose your business data in a number of ways, and all of them can happen completely unexpectedly.
- 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.
- Viruses and malware can be another source of data loss. If, despite all your efforts to protect yourself against malware, some malware does get into your network, you could either lose your data or lose access to it.
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.
