Your company’s data is the heart of your business which is why regular data backups are crucial. Ranging from accounting documents produced by programs such as QuickBooks to sales information and vital files, Rezz Tech can provide regular data backups to ensure your business is covered. While technology is meant to make running a business easier, it can also cripple it. Without a proper plan to back up this data, your company can be left without anything if a catastrophic failure were to occur. You can rest easy knowing your company will be safe and secure in Rezz Tech’s hands.
Conducting regular data backups can help ensure that your business is up and running in no time after a failure.
How Should Your Company Conduct Data Backups?
There are numerous ways to conduct a data backup. The utilization of an onsite solution that physically stays at your business is one measure your company can take. Another option would be the use of a cloud-based service. This option can be a more expensive route but provides an extra layer of security for your data. Our recommendation would be the implementation of both an onsite and offsite data backup. While this does raise the cost for your business, it also gives you assurance of guaranteed data safety through two different mediums.
Onsite backups can range from an external HDD to a NAS or even just another computer.
An onsite data backup can be something as simple as an external hard drive. On the other side of the spectrum, your system can use a server connected to a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) system setup that backs up your data on multiple hard drives. The correct solution for one business may not be the same for another. It’s important for your IT company to pinpoint exactly what your business demands. We will be able to recommend the optimal onsite backup for your needs.
An offsite data backup can consist of a cloud-based system such as Microsoft Azure or any of the several other companies that provide backup solutions. Before starting with an offsite company, it’s recommended that you do the necessary homework first. It’s important to know the amount of space the backup service provides, how they will conduct the data backups, and what uptime they promise with your subscription. While this method is costlier, it ensures that your data is safe in another location. Natural disasters or power surges can render your onsite backup equipment useless. Nobody expects it until it’s too late.
A cloud solution could save your business time and money.
At the end of the day, we understand that this looks like another upsell from a company. However, the importance of backing up your data can’t be stressed enough.
