Data backups serve as insurance in case something catastrophic happens to your server. What happens when a hard drive crashes, a computer virus corrupts your files, a fire destroys the building and all of its computers, or a burglar walks off with your server? If you have a good, recent backup, you can get back up and running quickly. Without one, you could be out of business or face serious disruptions.
That said, data backups are not created equally. The best data backup solutions cover the three R’s: Redundancy, Reliability, and Recovery.
What do we mean by redundancy? We mean having more than one copy. Think of it like having a backup of your backup. Redundancy provides an extra measure of protection should something go awry with your backup.
Reliability is equally important. Does your backup actually happen as planned? Is the data recoverable? Is it backing up the right data in the first place? When it comes to reliability, we actually have two more R’s we want to mention: recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO).
RPO refers to the data than needs to be restored in order to get your business back up. RTO refers to the amount of time to perform the recovery before your business becomes adversely affected by downtime. Our data backup solution addresses both of these variables, resulting in prompt, reliable recoveries.
The crucial test of a redundant, reliable backup solution involves whether or not recovery is possible. It doesn’t do any good to have a backup medium that won’t actually restore your data in a timely manner. QuikTeks uses an automated data backup platform with a reliable, secure, and user-friendly interface. Unlike tape backups that need to be swapped and actively managed, our backups happen in the background and are readily available should you need to recover a single file or an entire array of lost or damaged data.
Our data backup platform does more than just backup and restore your data. It can also step in as a server should your system go down due to a virus, hardware failure, mistake, fire, flood, or other catastrophe.
Few businesses can afford to lose data or disrupt their services for more than a few hours. Make sure this doesn’t happen to you with a secure, reliable data backup and disaster recovery solution from QuikTeks. We have all of the R’s covered!
