Let’s Talk Backup: What Should Your Solution Protect You From?

b2ap3_thumbnail_bdr_best_practices_400.jpgOne of the most important aspects of any IT infrastructure is its data. In fact, it’s the sole reason your business continues to function properly. If you were to lose your data, would your organization be able to recover quickly, or would it sink to the depths of downtime and be swallowed by it?

Consider this: If your servers were to crash tomorrow, any data and applications on those servers will be inaccessible and possibly lost for good. This includes employee information, client contact information, financial records, and more. This is all imperative data that is difficult, if not impossible to replace quickly. By the time you’ve recovered from such a loss, will you be able to turn the tides on your misfortune and help your business get back up to speed? Most businesses that experience a major data loss like this, that don’t use some sort of data backup solution, will file for bankruptcy within a year of the incident.

The primary reason your business needs to consider data backup and disaster recovery is because there are too many factors at play that are unpredictable. Some of these include:

  • Natural Disasters: Fires, earthquakes, storms, power outages, and more can all lead to the destruction of your business’s in-house data storage infrastructure.
  • Hacking Attacks: If a hacker or threat (like Cryptolocker and Cryptowall) gets into your network, they can steal information, corrupt it, or lock it down. This can jeopardize your organization’s access to vital data that’s necessary for everyday operations.
  • User Error: Let’s say that a new user accesses the network and messes with settings they know they shouldn’t. If an inexperienced user were to misplace files, or delete them entirely, it could be disastrous for your organization if you don’t have a plan to recover them.
  • Hardware Failure: Old or damaged hardware is known to break down more than brand-new machines, making it more important than ever to either upgrade to more recent models, or take proactive steps to prevent hardware failure and prepare for the worst.

A quality data backup and disaster recovery solution should be able to protect your business’s data from all of the above, plus some. It needs to make copies of your data incrementally throughout the workday and send them to someplace safe for later access. It needs to ensure that your organization experiences maximum uptime to avoid the brutal and expensive costs of experiencing downtime.

White Mountain IT Services’s Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solution is a convenient and cost-effective way to handle all of the aforementioned threats. The BDR takes several backups of your data throughout the workday and sends the backups to our secure off-site data center. We can also arrange for your data to be stored in the cloud so you can access it at any time. From these locations, you can easily start the data recovery process in the event you need to restore your organization’s data. Better yet, the BDR can take the place of your server in the event a disaster renders it inoperable, giving you plenty of time to replace the server hardware while experiencing minimal downtime. Give us a call at 603-889-0800 to learn more.
