Data Backup, Recovery and Disaster Prevention

Vault door Whether you’re a home user or business user on a multi-server network, the most valuable and critical asset is the data on that system. All too frequently, that data is not adequately protected by a robust backup system. Data loss can be catastrophic. The National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, DC reports that 93% of companies that lose their data center for 10 days or more due to disaster, filed for bankruptcy within one year. 30% of all businesses that have a major fire go out of business within a year, 70% fail within five years.
It is vital to protect your valuable data with a reliable back up system. And it needs to be fast, easy, and automated. We strive to provide backup solutions with minimal end user responsibilities.

Solutions:

There are many ways to effectively backup your data. One solution that seems ideal for one client may be totally inappropriate for another; there are a lot of factors to consider. Some of these include:

  • The amount of data needed to be backed up
  • Cost considerations – both initial purchases and on-going media/equipment replacement
  • Location (susceptibility to flood, theft, vandalism)
  • Trust factor – do you feel safe with your data on some remote organization’s server or “cloud”?
  • How often data changes
  • Estimated cost for down time if recovery is needed
  • Personal / staff involvement and discipline: changing media, taking off site, etc.
  • Ease of use
  • Reliability of hardware and media being used; suitability to client style
  • Time required to perform backups in conjunction with other automated system functions
