Backup and Recovery
It can be very confusing when choosing a reliable backup and recovery system. The three most commonly used technologies are Disk Imaging, File Based Data Backup, and File Synchronization. It can be baffling as the software associated with these technologies often overlap somewhat in function.
When choosing a backup system, it will depend on the information stored on which system you decide to adopt. An online backup and recovery service removes the time constraints, licensing fees and also the labour intensive process connected with tape backup and recovery solutions.
Guide to backup systems
Online backup and recovery is fully automated and scalable to any volume of data. A good backup and recovery system should be:
Having an online backup system will come to the rescue should your premises ever burn down or become flooded or maybe the fireproof box containing your backup disks get stolen.
An online backup and recovery service will set up a leased line to a remote server, and transfer data to it at whatever interval you think appropriate. By renting server space you can upload anything you wish. You are able to restore online or pay for a CD of all you have stored on the third party's server.
What can you gain?
One of the major advantages of backup and recovery is the prevention of financial loss. Being unable to access vital information such as names, addresses and telephone numbers will lead to the inability to generate sales which, even in the short term, can be disastrous. Not only will this have a major impact on cash flow but will also impact greatly on profit.
Backup and Recovery will remove the worry of loss of vital operational information such as customer financial information and records. An effective backup and recovery system will ensure the staff payroll is not affected and thus prevent loss of credibility and goodwill.
With the ever present threats today from hackers, computer viruses, power failures plus fire, water and other natural disasters, the small to medium business is extremely vulnerable to these threats. So a well designed backup and recovery system is essential if you want to minimise data loss and have a recovery system which will take away the impact and worry of lost data.
Fully integrated with the every changing IT environment
A good backup and recovery service will support all operating systems, databases and email formats and protect these applications in a variety of ways. Whether you have a single or a combination of many different system environments a good backup and recovery service will design a solution to protect your network to suit your needs.
Compression, wizards who help manage your backup files and encryptions are all standard services. Security is not compromised as the backup and recovery providers are unable to UN-encrypt your data.
When backing up information, more than one copy will be taken which will be used to restore the original information after a data loss occurrence. The extra copies are predominantly used to recover data following a disaster (disaster recovery) and to restore accidentally deleted or corrupted files.
