Businesses need to be prepared for the worst, as disasters could strike at any moment and cause irreparable data loss. One of the ways your business can break in the new year with confidence is with a backup and disaster recovery (BDR) strategy that minimizes downtime and keeps your organization safe from events beyond your control. We’ll help you put together the best backup solution for your business’ needs.
What Makes a Good Backup Strategy?
It’s easy to underestimate just how valuable data is for a business. Protecting your data by any means necessary is critical to your continued success. The best way to do this is by using a comprehensive data backup solution that also has a disaster recovery component. While it might be tempting to back up all data on your network, it’s worth remembering that some data isn’t as valuable as other data. You’ll have to decide which data is worth more and design a strategy around making sure this is always available.
Resolutions for 2019
You should always strive for excellence in everything your business does, and data backup is one way your organization can improve itself for 2019. If you’re not sure how you can improve data backup and disaster recovery for your business, try following some of these guidelines:
- Implement a backup platform that lets you back up the data necessary to the operations of your business, minimizing downtime to keep costs low.
- Work with your IT administrator to plan your data backup solution based around specific factors like your recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO).
- Test your backups regularly to ensure they work as intended. This means that any time you have to actually deploy a backup, you can know with certainty that they’ll work.
