As the business world has evolved, its reliance on technology and data storage has grown exponentially. Knowing that, it should come as no surprise to you that when something goes wrong with that memory, it sets back a business days, if not weeks, and costs them thousands of dollars. In fact, 96% of all business workstations are not being backed up. That’s why we’re here to remind you that you’re gonna need data backup.
The Importance of Data Backup
When it comes to IT service and support, a lot of companies will tell you different things. Some will recommend certain programs over others, some will say you need to use a certain piece of hardware over another, but the one thing that every single IT service provider agrees on is that you need to backup your systems, and do it well.
Don’t believe us? Just Google “backup your business.” In our quick search, there were over 19 million results, and as we skipped through pages upon pages of technology blogs, not a single one suggested anything other than making sure you have a good backup system in place.
When you think of backing up your business systems, you have to take it seriously. You can’t just go to the store, buy a large flash drive or external hard drive, plug it in and transfer files. It’s definitely never that easy. You have to make sure that what you’re doing is consistent with your business processes and flow. A good IT service provider will have this spelled out in their road map or plan for your organization.
How to Think about Data Backup
The best way to think about your backup is to put it in terms of a move. When you pack up your dishes and valuables for a move, you don’t just throw them all into a box, then throw the box around until it needs to be open again. Doing so, as you would imagine, would result in piles of broken housewares and destroyed goods at the worst … and at best, it would take weeks or more to unpack and figure out where everything you packed is.
Proper backup and storage is like a good move. You have to create a high-level plan to carefully store the data in order, packing and unpacking it in a way to make sure that it all goes back into place and functions the way you want it to. You can’t simply throw things around in a hurry and hope for the best.
You’re also going to need top quality, tested storage to make sure that what’s stored doesn’t get lost in storage as well. There is a great deal of potential for error in backup options. That being said, you should never go for backup alone.
