A Managed Backup Service can solve many problems
There are a lot of things that can cause harm and threaten businesses these days. The challenges of management is to proactively steer the business through these mine fields. A few of the potential pitfalls a Managed Backup Service can help avoid are as follows.
When it comes to data loss statistics; there’s different percentages thrown around depending on where you look (for example):
However they all say a similar thing. A lot of businesses that suffer significant data loss end up closing their doors for good within the 12 months after the data loss incident.
By undertaking a Managed Backup Service; the risks around loss of data are minimized through the implementation of best practice business continuity and disaster recovery planning.
Restore and Recovery Failures and Issues
You’d be surprised the number of businesses who take regular backups fail to perform regular recoveries. The number of times we’ve seen and heard of businesses (and IT companies providing backup as a service) run into problems recovering their data during a live disaster scenario.
Unfortunately; this can cause the downtime to increase significantly which costs a lot of money. Consequently; test recoveries can discover and avoid most problems that are likely to occur.
Upkeep overheads and cost
The alternative to a Managed Backup Service is to have staff on payroll which have the responsibility for maintaining and executing the business continuity and disaster recovery plans. This can be very costly and depending on the demand – inefficient to carry someone on payroll for such a specialized task.
By outsourcing; a business can gain the benefits of a professional managing their backups at a fraction of the cost.
