Your Backup and Disaster Recovery Solution Should Be Easy as 3, 2, 1

b2ap3_thumbnail_backup_and_recovery_in_the_cloud_400.jpgWhen it comes to your business' backup, you have a ton of options, but how much thought have you honestly put into it? It’s naturally one of the most imperative parts of your entire IT infrastructure, so you want to pay particularly close attention to how you are storing and receiving your data in the event of a disaster.

Have you ever heard of the 3-2-1 process for deciding on a backup solution? It’s very simple, and easy to remember in a pinch. According to InfoWorld, you want three copies of your organization’s data. Two of these should be in different formats, and one should be stored off-site for extra data redundancy. If your business is one of the many who still run tape, you’ll be relieved to hear that there’s an incredibly more efficient way of keeping your data as up-to-date as possible.

What we’re talking about is taking advantage of a cloud backup solution to safely and securely transfer your data to a data center. Unlike tape backup, a cloud backup solution allows your business to take multiple snapshots of your data daily, allowing for comprehensive and redundant data retention. Furthermore, you can easily recover data from your cloud solution, making it ideal not only for storage purposes, but also for recovery.

The only issue that many businesses get hung up on is the technical details; not to mention the pricing of a complete and total overhaul of their entire data backup process. Many small and medium-sized businesses find it difficult to afford such an in-depth procedure, or they simply don’t have the manpower available to integrate a comprehensive backup solution. In a world where hackers can target your data and steal it or render it useless, you need to take any and all precautions to prepare for the worst.

To save SMBs both time and money, White Mountain IT Services offers managed IT services that help optimize operations and increase productivity in the workplace. One of our most important solutions, especially to a business that can’t afford to lose everything in an instant, is our Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solution. It’s designed to take multiple backups throughout your workday, and send copies to an off-site data center for storage and later recovery.

Arguably, the most valuable asset that our BDR offers is its ability to practically neutralize downtime. When you lose access to your data due to a natural disaster, power outage, or other potentially disastrous downtime incident, the BDR device can rapidly act as your server, deploying your backed-up data and allowing your business to function even under the worst conditions. This allows you to make the proper arrangements for replacement technology if your server is inoperable or insecure.

To make data backup easy as 1-2-3, give us a call at 603-889-0800.
