Data backup: the alpha and omega
Regular backups are an absolute must for large and small businesses and inevitable. Failure to provide a professional backup system can do tremendous economic damage to a company. We tell you what to look for in backups.
Information and data are known to be one of the most important components today. The need for data backup - especially in companies - is thus quickly apparent.
That's why we've put together some tips for your data backups:
Two things are important in locating a site: the geographical separation of the backup and the choice of the country in which your backup server is located. Geographical separation is a must, as, for example, in the event of a fire in the corporate building, data can still be accessed when the servers in the building burn out.
"Where should I outsource my data," you ask yourself? We advise you to save your data in Switzerland. So you are legally always on the safe side and the service, availability and thus your data are guaranteed.
We highly recommend a specified backup process: Schedule your backups at regular intervals - once a day or once a week, depending on the amount and importance of the data. Time and effort for the backup process should be tailored to the needs of each business.
A fully automatic check of the backups is unfortunately not possible. In addition to the mechanical, therefore, a manual check of the backup data is necessary. We also recommend extensively testing the recovery of backup data. Because even the best backup planning and implementation does not help in an emergency if the data can not be recovered.
Either way, backups are essential today and are essential to business. In particular, it is an issue that should not be deferred due to other priorities but should be pushed up the to-do list. Because in the case of damage, the economic and financial losses for your company can be enormous and in the worst case, even bankruptcy.
