A Good Backup Should Allow Business Owners to Rest Easy

A Good Backup Should Allow Business Owners to Rest Easy

Your business’ data is extremely important to the livelihood of your business and as a result, you need to have plans in place to protect it. Sure, you can invest in all the top notch cybersecurity tools and services, and they may keep you from getting your data stolen or corrupted, but what happens if something terrible happens to the servers that it is stored on? No level of threat detection is going to save a server if it is charred, under water, or its components are completely fried. 

Fortunately, there is Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR). It doesn’t matter if you are in or out of the office. In Alabama, Alaska, or Azerbaijan. With a functioning, tested, and reliable BDR in place, your data will be safe from flood, fire, lightning, wind, component failure, power surge or user error.

Think about it this way. You wouldn’t go on an overnight trip without a change of clothes, right? This is because a big glob of mustard could fall off your ballpark frank onto your shirt. Who wants to spend half the day walking around with a giant mustard stain on their shirt? Nobody. For the growing business, the equivalent to a mustard stain is data loss. If you think you look stupid with a mustard stain on your shirt, think about how stupid you will look if you were to lose large chunks of essential data because you weren’t prepared. That’s why you need backup, the change of clothes of business’ IT. 

The BDR provides businesses with a viable solution to protect data, keep it protected regardless of the problems you face, and be able to use that data even if your building explodes. You get the network-attached BDR, which backs up your data as frequently as every 15 minutes, and stores it on reliable hard drives that you can restore from at a moment’s notice. It also uploads a copy of the changes to an offsite storage facility. Should anything happen to your business’ hardware, and presumably the BDR device, the redundancy of your data is maintained. 

Now compare that to saving files manually to a cloud server, or backing up data daily using portable hard drives, or god-forbid utilizing a tape backup that has a lot of terrible moving parts. It’s easy to see why BDR is that emergency change of clothing when you need it most.

Don’t let a lack of foresight ruin your vacation. Call the IT professionals at Oh-Tech today at 01202 835880 to talk about how you can protect your data, and your business with the BDR.
