The Cloud: Are there security issues?For many, the idea of offloading their data to another physical/virtual location can seem like a security risk. It seems counter intuitive that moving data away from “ home” is safer. But is that really true? Any server stored at your location is probably more physically vulnerable than one protected in a large server farm.... Read More
Redundant Data Backup | Business Continuity
It's important to implement a data backup and recovery solution as part of a concise business continuity plan.
There once was a time when companies required steel filing cabinets to store information. That time is long gone. Today, most of the documents you rely on to make your business run properly are digital. Document duplication, fireproof vaults, and off-site filing systems once were more prominent because that was the best way for companies to endure disasters. All this extra storage was part of their business continuity plan. They knew that if a disaster ever struck, losing all of their work could deal a fatal blow to their business. However, now that businesses primarily deal with digital records, different methods need to be utilized to prevent data loss. Data backup and recovery are utterly essential to any business continuity and disaster recovery plan. Yet, a 2021 report says that only about 33% of folders are not backed up in any way.
This is where DatCom, LLC comes in.
Consider the files stored on your computer network. Everything is typically stored on a central hard drive or server to make the operation of the system simple and efficient for multiple users. The problem with this is that you face a higher-degree of risk by "putting all your eggs in one basket." Hard drives fail all the time, and tape backup is costly and inefficient, so having a dedicated backup system is a must to ensure business continuity.
If your business were to ever lose its data from drive failure, natural disaster, or user error, you would be staring tragedy in the face. Nearly 70% of businesses that lose their data quickly go out of business. Having a data recovery solution, like our Backup and Disaster Recovery (or BDR), is an essential component of a solid business continuity plan.
How Our Backup Solution Works to Ensure Continuity
Simple, yet effective and affordable.
Unlike tape backup, our Backup and Disaster Recovery system utilizes hard drives to redundantly backup your data. By storing the data away from your primary location, it helps ensure the redundancy that you are looking for in a comprehensive backup system. With DatCom, LLC's BDR, you'll know that your data is always safe. If ever anything were to happen to your original data, a simple re-route would be all it takes to get your business back up and running again. This allows you to minimize your downtime to minutes, as opposed to the hours it would take to restore that data by using a less efficient backup solution.
To ensure that your company is protected from disaster, we believe that it's best practice to find a solution that not only backs up your data redundantly in multiple locations but has the ability to restore in minutes.
If you currently don't have a backup solution, then you need one. It is an essential part of any business continuity plan. Based on an affordable, monthly flat rate, DatCom, LLC's Backup and Disaster Recovery solution is a smart way to protect your business.
