Data backup and disaster recovery are two of the linchpins of any business that relies on data and IT solutions storing information.

Keep a Disaster Recovery Strategy
Would your business be out of commission for a long time following a disaster scenario?

By considering all of the details about a potential disaster recovery scenario, you can better prepare for situations where you’ll need to initiate it. This means that you can minimize data loss and time wasted due to downtime.

Test Your Backups Regularly
You’ll only benefit from your business’s backup and disaster recovery if it works as intended. Imagine that you experience a scenario where you need to deploy a data backup, but it’s corrupted and you can’t initiate it. This can really put a damper on your plans. You should periodically test your business’s backups to ensure that they actually work when you need them to.
