Data Backups

Data Backup

The most important asset belonging to any business is its information. With the increasing importance of information technology for the continuation of business critical functions the importance of protecting an organizations data and IT infrastructure in the event of a disruptive situation has become an increasing and more visible business priority in recent years. It does not matter whether you are a small or large business- data is a vital part of any enterprise.

It is absolutely critical that users and business understand that corruption happens, hard drives will fail, motherboards will short out, and mistakes will erase data. Good maintenance and technical skills may increase the time between errors, but in the end equipment failure or human error is inevitable and you will need your data backup.

Most people don’t realize how much they have invested into the data on their hard drive. Forget about the obvious things like financial data (Receivables, Payables, and Tax Information), which we know would be disastrous to lose. Think about the man-hours re-installing the base software on your computer, reconfiguring your environment to suit your preferences again. Without a full data backup, getting up and going again could easily cost you several days of productivity. How much is your time worth to you. On the other hand, occasional full data backups, combined with nightly backups of key data, will often turn several days of lost productivity and weeks of reorganizing into an hour of restoring your disk image, and key data that may have changed since the last full backup.
