During Hurricane Florence companies realized just how important multi-tiered backup solutions are. The coastal areas were of course affected, but the surprise was inland. Many people were caught off-guard by the amount of rain and how fast flooding occurred. When faced with the need to leave quickly, there are so many things you want to pack but simply can’t. When it comes to business, or even family, data is of the utmost importance. Having backups on-site is good, but having another in the cloud is better. People had to leave the buildings where they worked, families had to be rescued from dwellings as water levels rapidly rose. Grabbing a computer is the last thing on your mind when confronted with this. Keeping technology dry and safe is second to you and your family’s safety. Everyone knows you can replace the device. When your data is in the cloud, you can now restore from anywhere.
There are many ways to backup online. The better services provide not just data files, like word processing or spreadsheet files, to be backed up but system files like the operating systems files, updates, application files and more. When you lose your server, with this service, you can replace the server and then restore the system files AND the data files. This saves much more time and can be done from any location you can work from.
Many companies, particularly smaller ones, don’t feel the need for a multi-tiered backup solution. In most cases they don’t want to pay the extra money for it. It shouldn’t be a high cost at all. There are many reasons why it is a good idea to have this. A hurricane is not the only reason.
