Did you know that a virus, hardware failure, natural disaster or simple human error could wipe out your most important files?
It is important to save your data in some way. Below are some methods we offer and use for our clients.
Some critical points are outlined below. The best choice and peace of mind is to use all 4 of these methods, however we understand not all client's needs are exactly the same. We would be happy to do a customized review with you. Each one of these items protects you in a different way.
We image, which is saving a backup of your server/computer, to insure you against an unfortunate hardware failure or data loss. This image helps you get data restored or an entire server restored quickly. This unfortunately has occurred many times with client's systems before they became our client's.They faced hardware failure but were saved by this service. We were able to restore their server operating systems and data from the images we had. In these cases a tape backup system would have failed to get them back up quickly because the tapes only contain data and not Operating systems and installed software.
So maybe you have an image of just your computer or server, but your most important data needs to get offsite every night! Our newly launched service transmits your critical data to a secure location every night. We call this our "COLO". This is only for critical data that changes daily such as your accounting data, your Customer files, or important mailboxes. Click here for more information about our off-site data backup.
This step is in conjunction with step 2. If there is much more data that can be transmitted offsite nightly then all of your server images and data images are taken offsite monthly. We come out onsite and take your last month’s data images back to our headquarters. This way we have complete images of everything for the past month stored off-site.
A common mistake is for users to store critical data in folders that are not set for backup. Make sure all of your valuable data is stored on the server and not on a workstation desktop. Employees should save data to a directory that is on the server. We can train users to not save important documents on their desktops and local workstations. We can do an assessment of your data and redirect every users’ my documents to the server.
We recommend a plan that combines all of these methods to really protect your company’s valuable data. Using these 4 methods you are employing the best backup plan possible. If you sign up for these plans, we also watch to make sure all these backup jobs get done successfully.
We also can provide you with Daily reports upon request so you can rest assured your backups are getting done.
