How Easily Could A Freak Event Take Down Your Business?

How Easily Could A Freak Event Take Down Your Business?

Your business is much more vulnerable to dangerous entities than you’d care to admit. Think about it--all it takes is one unexpected event to cause untold amounts of chaos for your business. To make matters worse, these events are often outside of your control. Data loss incidents might be unpredictable, but they can be soothed thanks to a little bit of preventative management.

It’s one thing protecting yourself from cyber security threats (which you definitely need to be concerned with) but there are other types of unplanned disasters that can show up without warning. We’re talking about acts of nature and misfortune, which are certainly much more difficult to prevent than a hacking attack--there’s little you can do to stop the weather.

The only way to guarantee your business’s future is to think of your organization like you would an egg. An egg could crack at any time unless you take preventative measures to keep it safe. For example, you’d keep it in the carton in the refrigerator, safe from any external elements. This is the way that you want to preserve your business’s data--in a safe, controlled environment that is free of external troubles.

This type of data isolation is generally not possible with traditional tape backup solutions. Your organization would take one backup a day after your office has closed, and this backup would be stored on a tape, which is either stored off-site or in-house. This presents potential problems for your organization in the fact that the tapes could be lost, misplaced, stolen, or destroyed while being stored in-house. Furthermore, since they are only being taken once a day, you run the risk of a data loss incident derailing operations during the middle of the workday. You could potentially lose up to an entire day’s worth of progress that could make all the difference when finishing a crucial project and meeting a deadline.

Plus, nobody wants to think about the downtime that comes from restoring data to your infrastructure. With traditional tape backup, restoring data could take anywhere from several hours to days, depending on the amount of data that’s being restored. Furthermore, your operations will be halted during this process. When no work is being done, you’ll only get further and further behind.

Cloud-based backup allows for much more dynamic data preservation techniques that utilize the virtual environment of the cloud. You can take multiple backups as often as every fifteen minutes, allowing for minimal data loss. Furthermore, your data can be restored directly to the BDR device itself, allowing for near-instantaneous recovery and minimal downtime. It’s just one way that planning for the worst can help you avoid it.

Does your organization need comprehensive data backup and disaster recovery? We can equip your business with BDR so that you’ll never have to be concerned with data loss again. To learn more, reach out to us at (703) 821-8200.
