You know you need to protect your business’s data. In fact, getting a good data backup plan in place is right at the top of your list of things to do – tomorrow. However, if you don’t have a reliable solution in place today, there may not be a tomorrow for your important data. Here are five very good reasons NOT to wait another minute.
Improved technology = increased complexity.
Innovations in software and hardware have made it easier for you to do business. The same innovations have also created a need for greater depth of knowledge in the area of backups. If your backup solution can't keep up with the technology you are using, your data is as good as gone. Our experts know how to backup and restore the data that's unique to your business.
Your IT person has a lot to do.
In addition to backups, he or she handles many other things like desktop support, server maintenance and network issues. These day to day issues can distract from the task of ensuring that backups are running and working properly. Our focus is on one thing, and that is making sure that your business is protected.
Your hardware will fail.
It may not be today, tomorrow, or even this week, but the odds are that your desktops and servers will fail at some point. When that happens, you MIGHT be able to recover the data off of the failed drives, but this process is very costly and there's a strong possibility that it will not work. Why risk it? Do it right the first time, because you may not get a second chance.
Tape backups are not reliable.
Even if you change your tapes every day and store them offsite, there is no guarantee that you will be able to successfully restore data from your tape backups. Temperature, humidity, electromagnetism, and age are just a few of the things that can cause tape backups to fail. Also, if test restores aren't being done regularly on your tapes, you might be in for an unpleasant surprise when you really do need your data.
Support makes all the difference.
If there's no one available to help you restore your data right when you need it, then you are not getting the level of support you need and deserve. Inadequate support translates to longer recovery time, lost productivity and increased headaches.
