Level Up Your IT With Backup & Disaster Recovery This World Backup Day

world-backup-day-2022-it-support-digital-seattle

In celebration of World Backup Day every 31st day of March, our IT support in Seattle aims to spread awareness on the value of having a sound backup and disaster recovery plan.

 

What Is Backup For Business?

How reliant are you on your business’ data and what would happen to your business if you were to lose that data? The answer to the first question should be a very obvious “very.” The answer to the second is equally obvious: “nothing good.”

Your backup is meant to prevent you from ever having to find out that second answer firsthand. The idea of a backup is simple: with an extra copy of your data squirreled away for safekeeping, you don’t need to panic if something happens to your original copy. What that something could be, we’ll touch on later.

 

How Does Backup & Disaster Recovery Do For Your Business?

We always recommend that a business’ backup be considered redundant—in a good way. Rather than something being unnecessary due to its repetition, its repetition is its strength. In this context, having a redundant backup simply means that you have multiple copies of this backup.

We always recommend that you have multiple copies of your data backup, stored in numerous different places, in different formats. This is commonly summed up as the 3-2-1 Rule:

At least three copies of your data, stored on at least two types of storage media, with at least one copy stored in the cloud.

 

Why Do You Need A Backup & Disaster Recovery Plan?

There are a great many reasons that a backup could prove useful. Naturally, your mind might go right to the largest disasters: fires, floods, and other such things that would completely wipe a business off the map. However, disasters large and (relatively) small can all result in data loss—data loss that your backup can help you avoid. Whether a device fails, ransomware encrypts your entire network infrastructure, or a disaster occurs, a proper data backup can do a lot to resolve your potential data loss issues.
