What used to be a simple inconvenience is now a fatal blow to a lot of companies. Data loss has become a critical problem in an age that revolves around information technology. One large data loss could be enough to stop a budding company in its tracks. Luckily, there are ways to reduce the risk of serious data losses. Learn the best practices for data backup and recovery your company needs to be using, including having a written recovery plan, backing up to the cloud, relying on automation, and using the right technologies. Dolce Vita IT Solution offers Sempreon DATTO as a comprehensive data recovery solution perfect for any company.
1. Have a Recovery Plan
Dolce Vita recommends making a written plan to prepare for emergencies. Everyone should know the plan and take ownership of both their day-to-day role and their role in an emergency. Establish different layers of redundancy, as well as what to do when data loss happens. Review the plan regularly to keep it up to date.
2. Vary Storage Methods
Using multiple methods of data storage provides flexibility and redundancy. The cloud offers cost-friendly protection free from on-site risks and allows for quick recovery of information. Dolce Vita makes image-based backups, not files/folders only, tests the backups daily to make sure they restore correctly, and provides virtual machines on your network as backups, getting you back online in minutes, not hours.
3. Capitalize on Automation
Automation provides constant protection that avoids such circumstances. People forget to back up their data; automated processes remove that from the equation. Manual processes can miss steps, while correctly configured automated backup will complete each step before going on. Sempreon DATTO automates the process for you, giving your administrator real-time oversight on backups both on-site and off.
4. Have the Right Technology
Make sure you have the right technology for your company before you need it. Self-Monitoring Analysis Reporting Technology (SMART), for example, monitors storage drives to spot potential failures before they happen. SMART allows IT staff to back up data before the drive dies.
Having a plan helps everyone feel confident regarding the security and integrity of their data. Sempreon DATTO provides the solution your company needs to protect your data, keep you aware of its status, and be ready for whatever happens. Contact Dolce Vita for more information.
