Solid Data Recovery Strategies Can Get You Through Tough Situations

Solid Data Recovery Strategies Can Get You Through Tough Situations

As most people know, data backup is important, and when things go wrong you’ll be glad your business has it. The thing is, it’s not enough to have a copy of your data when you need to restore it, you’ll also need a recovery strategy. This is because getting your data back working for you is arguably as important as any other part of the process. Today, we’ll take a look at data recovery strategies that will get your business back on track after a disaster.

Defining “Disaster”

The “disaster” could be any type of event where your business loses data. It doesn’t have to be a total ruiner like a fire or flood. It can be something as benign as someone deleting a file or it could be something as serious as a full-network ransomware attack. There are many different scenarios where you can lose data and if your business isn’t ready for one, it will be the one that will cause major issues when it happens. Let’s go through some of the considerations you will have to make when strategizing your data recovery platform and how recovery impacts businesses.

SMBs and Data Loss

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are the ones that are primarily hurt by data loss. Larger organizations usually have the capital to invest in a full-scale business continuity platform. If an SMB deals with data loss, it becomes extremely important that they can get that data back quickly and keep their business running effectively. 60 percent of SMBs that have a dramatic data loss incident shut their doors within six months, making it essential to have a strong strategy.

Here are some tips to create yours:

The 3-2-1 Rule

The 3-2-1 rule is a policy that builds stable redundancy of a company’s data and computing assets. The organization effectively keeps three separate copies of data. Two of these copies are kept onsite with one copy stored offsite. We suggest using the cloud to store your offsite storage. Our backup and disaster recovery (BDR) service allows for companies like yours to follow the 3-2-1 rule and keep your data ready for recovery. 

Rapid Recovery

If you have a backup plan in place, but don’t have a strategy to recover it fast, it’s not doing your company any good. To maintain continuity, you will need your business’ data. The BDR can help you manage your backup and recovery processes to ensure that you can get back up and running fast if you deal with some data loss. 

Testing Backups

The best way to ensure that your backups are working correctly is to consistently test them. No situation could be more frustrating than having a backup solution in place only to find out that it wasn’t working properly when you need it. Test your backups consistently. 

Leave Recovery to the Experts

With so much depending on your business’ data, having a solid backup and recovery strategy in place is extremely important. For more information about our BDR service and how our professional technicians can help you come up with a plan to ensure your data is secure regardless of the situation, call us today at 603-889-0800.
