Backup and Disaster Recovery – Do you have a plan?

When disaster strikes (and it will), you can put the pieces back together if you’ve got a solid backup solution in place.

If you’re not backing up, you are tempting fate. It’s only a matter of time before something tragic will happen: a hardware failure, a hacker, or a corrupted update. Something will bring that server down and do everything it can to take your data with it.

We hear all sorts of shocking statistics shared far and wide about disasters and data loss, statistics like these:

  • 90% of businesses losing data from a disaster are forced to shut down within two years.
  • Only 44% of businesses successfully recovered information after a recent data recovery event.
  • 53% of claimants never recoup the losses incurred by a disaster.

Consider what a disaster really is: any event that disrupts your ability to run your business. Did you catch that? Any event.  An event isn’t always newsworthy…..it could be anything from a power outage to a disgruntled employee who decides to delete sensitive files.
