Data backup is technology put in place to create copies of data that can be accessed should the data be accidentally deleted, corrupted or simply and older version is required. Data backup forms a critical part of your overall disaster recovery plane and should be in place regardless of whether your business has a Disaster recovery plan or not.
How does it work?
ZenTec Network Solutions work with you to discover what your requirements for backup are. We find that businesses already have requirements in place such as recovery times and offsite storage. We also find that some businesses have no policies and we can help here too. We work with multiple vendors to provide the best fit so you can be confident that we are only putting solutions forward for your own benefit. The solutions we put in place with you can cover the following and more:
- Local replication
- Office replication
- Cloud replication
- Offsite storage
- Storage replication
How is it used?
Data backup is used through a combination of both hardware and software which will be determined by the business requirements. We will work closely with you to ensure that the correct policies are put in place and monitoring so that all backups can be logged. Once the solution is in place, we will continue to work on fine tuning the system to meet your requirements and then importantly test.
We work closely with all our clients to ensure that at least the most basic backup is in place to ensure data protection. With additional services, such as monitoring and testing, you can be confident that your data is backed up and ready to accessed when required.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of data backup are huge as most businesses rely on data for daily operations and to provide services to both your clients and customers. The ability to restore data in the event of data loss can be the difference between your business surviving, or not.
