Are you 100% confident that your current backup solution is working? Backups are the first line of defense in case of a serious hardware failure, theft or fire. Backup systems allow you to take an exact copy of data as it is on a server or workstation today and remove that copy of the data elsewhere. The problem is that backups can fail and unless someone is monitoring it, restoring a network to a former point in time after a disaster is difficult if not impossible.
As is always the case, backup solutions come in a wide range of prices depending on the volume of data that requires backing up, how quickly the company wants to back that data up, how often backups need to be taken etc. There are a myriad of backup solutions available on the market and we can help you to find and implement one which will suit your requirements and your budget.
Remember – don’t assume that because your backups worked a month ago that they are working today. It’s important that your IT support provider monitor this for you and conduct restore tests at regular intervals to ensure that your data is safe.
