While “redundant” isn’t typically used as a complimentary descriptor, it very much is when it comes to your business’ data and data backups. This is because you want to make sure that you always have a backup copy ready to go. Let’s consider what a business that doesn’t have this redundancy present in its data is vulnerable to experiencing.
To start, let’s quickly review what a backup is, in the case of a business and its technology:
What is a Business-Grade Data Backup?
A backup is a copy of an organization’s data or even the entire environment that is saved as a form of data redundancy…kind of a form of insurance to protect the business in the case of system failure or other form of data loss.
Not Having a Backup is a Risky Course, Especially for Businesses
As everyone has learned at one time or another, technology is far from infallible. The wear and tear of everyday use, malfunctioning hardware, power failure, hacks and malware, and many other circumstances all could and have propagated serious business problems.
How serious? Unfortunately, we’re talking “completely prevent continued operations” levels of serious. We’re talking “set your business back months” levels of serious.
“You’re no longer in business” levels of serious.
A Reliable and Easy-to-Implement Backup is More Than Just an Extra Copy
Without a backup, your business is vulnerable to far more risk than it would be otherwise. However, it’s important that this backup meets certain standards in order to sufficiently protect the amount of data your business generates day in and day out. This means that you need a backup tool that keeps your data current and accessible should you need to restore it.
Enter the BDR
The backup and disaster recovery services offered by COMPANYNAME do more than just back up your data. Our BDR is a comprehensive system that takes incremental backups of your data both onsite in a dedicated BDR device and offsite in a few data centers. This way, you’ll always have an option to restore your data or systems should it be necessary for any reason.
As an added bonus, if technology failure of any kind is present, the BDR can be used as a temporary virtual server—a feature that could easily make a huge difference in getting your business back on its feet if your other technology is rendered inoperable. Just consider that over 90 percent—over 90 percent—of businesses that suffer severe data loss are permanently closed within two years. Clearly, this kind of system is a huge asset for your business’ continued success.
