Cloud backups – have you considered it?

Companies of all sizes are struggling with how to store and manage data backups. The rapid growth in business information, and the often distributed nature of this data, needs careful management. It is important that businesses protect this data to help with business continuity in case this information is lost.

The importance of having a robust backup and recovery solution is becoming more important than ever before. A number of business types are seeking an effective method to protect critical data. Most businesses including solicitors, accountants and financial advisors are left exposed when they don’t have a data protection plan in place.

What options are available?

Traditional tape / local disk based backups provide a sound foundation for any data protection plan.

But what happens should someone forget to take the disks or tapes off site? You might have a mixed approach and have tape and disk and be able to find an older piece of media to recover from, worse case you can’t recover anything.

It might be sensible to look at adding another layer to your data protection plan and use a cloud backup service.

Cloud backup is one of the most widely adopted cloud services available. The service is normally provided via a backup agent on a server or PC and copies data to a hosted server normally held in an off-site data centre. You have different options available, including the ability to decide what is backed up off site. You can also just backup your key operational data.

What are some of the benefits of cloud backups?

Accessibility – You can backup data from any location with an internet connection

Lower capital cost – Low capital outlay as no hardware or software licences are needed

Reduced IT need – Helps reduce the burden on your IT support to monitor and maintain larger systems

Consistency – Backup sets and policies can be consistently enforced
