Why Is Data Backup Such A Big Deal?

Why Is Data Backup Such A Big Deal?

If you are a regular reader of this blog, or if you’ve seen our blogs on social media, you’ve probably seen that we discuss data backup regularly. Some of you have a dedicated data backup platform that routinely works to keep your business safe from data loss. Some of you don’t, and need one. Today, we’ll talk a little bit about why it’s such a big deal. 

A business has to respect the value of its data. Just consider how it came to be. Your staff has worked hard to create it. Your sales and marketing teams have spent all types of time and money procuring all that data. Your human resources department saves all of your staff’s information. That’s not even considering all the customer data and financial information that you store. All that data is your business and if you were to lose it, it could mean losing your business.

The Big Deal

Once you consider that all the data you’ve chosen to store represents all of your working relationships, you realize pretty quickly that it needs to be protected. Antivirus, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and other security tools are necessary, but if disaster strikes, none of those systems are going to protect your business like a well-thought-out and impeccably implemented backup and disaster recovery platform will. 

There are more situations that can negatively affect the continuity of your business than just major disasters, including:

  • Malware attack
  • Human error
  • Sabotage and theft
  • Power surges
  • Hardware malfunction
  • Software corruption

With so many situations that could presumably take down your business, having a continuity strategy that includes a backup that provides at-the-ready data recovery works to mitigate the risk of business failure, even in the most disastrous circumstances. 

To get this done there are many options to choose from. There is the BDR, like the one Data Net sells. There are simpler solutions like removable hard drives. There are cloud backup services. There is even everyone’s antiquated favorite, magnetic tape. Regardless of what solution you choose you will need a plan that takes into account how you handle data; and, how you plan to scale the backup solution for future data needs. 

If your business is looking for a comprehensive data backup platform, our BDR is the way to go. The BDR is a network attached storage device that can be configured to backup files incrementally, so that you don’t lose large chunks of data between backups. Additionally, the BDR can be used as a temporary server if your centralized hardware malfunctions. The BDR also features a secondary cloud backup feature that backs up data in an offsite data center. If disaster strikes your business and your BDR device is damaged along with the rest of your hardware, you will have some peace of mind that your data is secure and backed up in the cloud.

Call our IT experts today at (760) 466-1200 to talk to them about getting your business’ data backed up and secured with a BDR.
