There Are Some Serious Benefits of Backup

There Are Some Serious Benefits of Backup

How are you protecting your data from disaster? If you don’t have a backup and disaster recovery platform in place you are missing one of the most crucial parts of managing your business’ Think about it, if your organization were to suddenly lose a significant portion of its data, would it be able to continue to function effectively? 

For years, when a business had a redundancy platform, it would have been magnetic tape. A tape backup has several problems. It isn’t automatic like the modern BDR. It has to be manually taken at a time when data isn’t being used. This causes major problems for the modern business that functions around the clock. Furthermore, you had to store the tapes, and someone had to manage it. All these problems are avoided with BDR. 

Using BDR

If you want data redundancy for your business in the information age, you need to get a BDR. Not only is your data backed up locally, it is also pushed to the cloud. Having data on site is great if you need to quickly restore something, or if you server crashes and you need a substitute server, while cloud backup is great for protecting the data in case of a major disaster that knocks out your onsite hardware. 

The BDR is automated to back up data incrementally, meaning that once there is a full backup taken, the BDR only copies changes made since the last backup. This allows you to run backups frequently (as frequently as every 15 minutes). Additionally, if you need to restore from you BDR, HUB Technology Solutions can do a bare-metal restore, ensuring that you get all the data you need. 

Avoiding data loss is essential if you want to maintain solid operational effectiveness and maintain a sterling reputation.
