Backups are not optional—while the advancement of technology and its integration into our lives is responsible for many of the wonderful things we now possess and use on daily basis, the protection and storage of the data it relies on, has become a responsibility that all businesses must take seriously. The reality is that your business regardless of its size is a living and breathing a thing. It doesn't matter whether you're running a small business or a large corporation that employs thousands of Americans, properly maintaining the data you and your customers rely on is necessary for your businesses continued growth and success.
Multiple backups are a must—although it can be agreed upon across the board that backing up your data is important, many businesses fail at this due to the time it takes and its complexity. As a client of Sierra, we take your data very seriously. Backing up data is never just a one and done process; computers and other technology related solutions are always changing and therefore require a more proactive approach. Regardless of whether you need to back up a corporate website or multiple computers on a network, we have developed a standardized approach.
Backups are meant to be a life boat when a disaster happens, but having a simple plan B is never enough. That is why our backup plan consists of:
Taking multiple backups to ensure you always have a copy available should the unexpected happen.
Storing backups in a variety of locations such as: external storage drives, a network drive cloud service, a secured third-party server with FTP access.
After the data has been successfully backed up to the secondary location located off-site, multiple copies of that data is then copied over to a cold storage location—this is a location to where everything needed to restore the backup must be produced or brought on-site prior to successfully being able to restore the data from the backup. Having multiple redundancies in place ensure that there are always other secured ways of retrieving the essential data in the event that it is lost due to an unexpected event.
Prepare for the worst and hope for the best—while it is true that there is no telling when a disaster will happen, it's always better to be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. With Sierra Corporation as your managed services provider we understand how important having an effective plan of action during an unexpected emergency can be. It is for this reason that even though it is common for some businesses to believe that having a single backup is enough, this is simply not the case. The data that you produce and rely on day in and day out in the business world is vital to the success of your business and should be protected at all times!
