The Importance of Cloud Data Backup Presented by:
Don’t Underestimate Data Loss Studies have shown that 70% of businesses that suffer a serious data loss are out of business in two years. Data loss can occur in more deleting a file. While that can be a great inconvenience, there is a large collection of free software available to bring it back. But what do you do if there is a flood or fire that physically destroys the device your data is on? This is where the foresight of backing up to the cloud will save your files, as well as your business.
It May Be “Required By Law” For some industries, it is necessary to keep specific data backed up in order to comply with government regulated standards (i.e. HIPAA, PCI, SOX). Backup vendors are aware of these stringent regulations and have built their clouds to meet the needs of these verticals. The hybrid cloud platform lends itself perfectly, because if a local backup device is decommissioned all files are already located off-site and can be accessed easily when necessary. This fulfills many verticals’ requirements for contingency plans in emergency scenarios
Keep Working During a Crisis In the event of a disaster, cyber-attack, human error, etc., you will never lose access to your critical data and applications. This is critical to any business, because downtime can potentially bring operations to a halt while IT issues are being repaired. This can be extremely costly for any SMB to endure. Local copies of your data are made as often as every 15 minutes. When you go down, the backup device can act as the missing server until you bring in a replacement.
Your Data is Always There As the diagram shows, at any given moment, copies of your data will be located in three unique locations. The original on aserver or workstation, a backup on the local device, and a mirrored backup in a data center off-site. Also, since both clouds not only store data, but are also capable of virtualizing and restoring the production machine, there are multiple comprehensive resources to assist with your data’s protection and restoration.
Save Time and Money on Disaster Recovery When a server is decommissioned, you have to pay to replace the server, as well as pay someone to manually bring it back to the old state. Depending on the amount of data you could be back up and running within a few minutes/hours if you restore from a local backup. No need to setup permissions, or find the old settings for every configuration. It’s your old data, exactly as you left it, at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional data recovery.
