Why have backups?
Backups are typically performed daily to ensure necessary data retention at a single location, for the single purpose of copying data. So, in the event something untoward happens, as restoration of said data can take place in good time, minimising client downtime.
Backups can be managed to a local device or can be sent to a secure off-site location or both. To give an example business-critical data can be sent to the cloud, this is sensible as offsite backups tend to be heavily protected from potential ransomware attacks. A local backup should always be kept, as restorations can be provided far quicker from a local presence.
Businesses can be at risk of losing important data. Lost data leads to costly downtime, customer dissatisfaction, regulatory fines, and lost revenue. As a result, the IT professionals must meet extremely high expectations. You need to keep the company running 24-hours a day.
