Leveraging the Cloud For Your Backup Needs

Leveraging the Cloud For Your Backup Needs

Regardless of what you do, it’s a good bet that your business creates a lot of data. Some of which is completely essential to its sustainability. In order to protect it against data loss and disaster, you will need data backup. Today’s best options leverage cloud computing to ensure redundancy and availability. Today, we’ll take a look at data backup and how choosing one that incorporates cloud services can actually save your business.

Data Backup

Every business needs some form of data backup. Whether it is a hard drive, tape backup, or a comprehensive solution like the Backup and Disaster Recovery service we provide, keeping a copy of your business’ data is essential. Besides the obvious function of eliminating risk, a data backup ensures that you have another copy of data to restore from. 

With the role that your data plays for your business, keeping multiple copies is suggested. We promote what is called the 3-2-1 rule. That is three copies of your data, with at least two copies stored on different storage mediums, and one copy stored offsite. This strategy will ensure that if you need access to your data, you will always have an option to restore from. 

Cloud Backup

Today, there are cloud-based vendors for data backup. Initially, this process was for individuals that needed to back up their crucial data from their machines, but as the demand for secure data backup has increased, cloud backup vendors offer solutions for the small business all the way up to enterprise. Since your company’s files are saved in an off-site location, any tragic situation that were to befall your company will still result in you having control over your data. 

With cloud backup, you will find that data restores quickly, even if you have a lot of data to restore. Moreover, it supports benefits like ease-of-collaboration and remote access systems. 

The BDR

At Advantage IT Management, we stand by our products and services. Our BDR replicates your internet hardware in regular intervals (as regularly as every 15 minutes) so your entire computing infrastructure--down to your settings--are sustained with the BDR. Since the BDR is attached to your network, it is very easy to restore from and can function as a server. The BDR service Advantage IT Management provides also pushes a copy to the cloud, so that the data is redundant, stored in an offsite data center, and protected by professional technicians. 

Having multiple copies of your data onsite doesn’t do any good if your business is struck with a natural disaster. By ensuring that you have a copy of your files in the cloud, it goes a long way toward building the peace of mind that this technology should provide.

If you would like to talk to one of our professional technicians about data backup--and all that goes into it--give us a call today at 251-662-9770
