Your Backup Needs to Meet Some Prerequisites

Your Backup Needs to Meet Some Prerequisites

There is always the constant threat of data loss looming over your business. Even though the idea might be terrifying, you need to consider all of the many possible ways that crippling data loss can occur. To combat these issues head-on, you should implement a backup solution that adheres to industry best practices. We’ll help you determine what your business’ requirements are for a quality data backup solution.

What Your Company Needs from Data Backup
You should consider your business’ data backup and disaster recovery process to be the only thing holding your company back from total annihilation. It doesn’t matter what the cause is--you should be ready for it. Your office might need to be rebuilt, or your devices might need to be replaced, but data is the one truly irreplaceable part of your business. If you don’t have any type of data backup system in place, recovering your data will be impossible.

Therefore, it’s absolutely crucial that you have measures put into place to at least resolve the following questions.

  • How quickly can data be backed up?
  • How quickly can data be restored?
  • How badly could your operations be interrupted in the interim?
  • How protected is my backup against its own disasters, especially the same ones that could influence the data I have stored in-house?

What Data Backup is Best for Me?
There are a couple of different ways that your organization can take advantage of data backup, but we will always recommend one that’s centralized around the use of cloud technology. The simple reason for this is that the cloud allows for an automated backup solution compared to the manual tape backup systems that have been popular in the past. This eliminates the need to relying on your users, who could make a mistake and threaten its redundancy.

How Can You Get Started?
To implement a backup solution, it’s best that you work with a reputable vendor. Decatur Computers Inc. can work with your business to find the best solution for your needs. To learn more, reach out to us at 217-475-0226.
