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.


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
