The Importance of Regular Backups for Your Business.
The importance of regular backups can not be stressed enough. Far too often we see clients put the importance of regular server and computer backups on the back burner. Currently you have four backup options to choose from. These options consist of on-site, off-site, cold backups, and hot backups. Every partner is different, but we typically recommend having an off-site and on-site backup to ensure that your data is safe and secure in case of a failure or mishap. If you have any questions regarding which type of backup is correct for you and your business, feel free to message us or put your question in the comments section after this blog.
What Rezz Tech Offers:
At Rezz Tech we offer a cloud-based backup service through Microsoft Azure to our clients. We have found that Microsoft’s backup service not only beats the pricing of its competitors, but also provides better service and reliability for the money. With Microsoft Azure, we are happy to provide the following key benefits at a great price for your business.
Automatic Storage Management
Microsoft Azure offers a unique pay-as-you-use model. Which means your company will only be charged based on what you use, rather than set storage amounts that your company may not use entirely.
Microsoft Azure Backup uses the underlying power and unlimited scale of the Azure cloud to deliver high-availability without maintenance or monitoring overhead.
Multiple Storage Options
Microsoft Azure offers two types of replication- Locally redundant storage (LRS) and Geo-redundant storage (GRS). LRS backups store your data three times. It’s a low-cost option. GRS is the recommended-up option. This option backs you your company’s data to a secondary Azure paired region hundreds of miles away from your company. This option costs slightly more but is beneficial if there is a regional outage compromising your data.
Unlimited Data Transfer
Azure Backup does not limit the amount of inbound or outbound data you transfer.
Microsoft does a decent job at providing secure services. However, Azure also uses a passphrase that you provide when setting up the back up.
An application-consistent backup means a recovery point has all required data to restore the backup copy.
Long Term Retention
You can use Recovery Services vaults for short-term and long-term data retention. Microsoft Azure allows your company to leave data in a recovery service vault for as long as you want.
However, if you or anybody at your company have any questions regarding backups or what’s recommended for your business needs, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
