Backup and Storage Solutions

No small business is immune from the need for reliable data backups. Every small business wrestles with the issue of data backups. Almost every organization recognizes the need—sometimes mandated by law—to archive and secure important business data. However, confusion quickly arises in the details.

How should organizations back up their data? What data should be backed up? How often should archive sets be created? How should backups be moved off site?

Computer Troubleshooters can work with your organization to design and implement a backup solution tailor-made to meet its business requirements. Without an appropriate backup solution, disruptions could prove costly.

  • There is a 50% chance an organization will go out of business immediately when critical data is lost.
  • Odds of business failure increase to 90% within two years when businesses lose critical data.
  • On average, data loss costs 19 days of productivity, according to the ICSA.
  • Recovering data from damaged disks is exponentially more expensive than ensuring you possess adequate backups, not to mention much more time consuming.

For better backups and data protection, Computer Troubleshooters recommends:

  • Reviewing what information (specific files and folders) is critical to your business and developing a plan to ensure that data is regularly backed up and stored or rotated off site.
  • Determining how much time can safely pass between backup routines within your organization.Testing backup sets regularly to confirm they are working properly.
  • Updating backup routines whenever required by software application updates and upgrades.
  • Automating off-site storage.
  • Confirming a backup solution creates secure backups that protect critical data from falling into the wrong hands.
