Here at DSIS we can help you create a backup strategy that works for your business. This will minimise the risks of data loss and make sure that you can get back to work as quickly as possible should the worst happen. Don't just leave things to chance!
We can’t guarantee that your laptop will never get dropped and broken, or that your server will never fail, but if you work with us to backup your data we can make sure that the impact is minimised.
Why is having a backup strategy so important to my business future?
Consider what would happen if your laptop got damaged or stolen. Would you be able to continue working? Would you have a copy of your files elsewhere? Or would you need to try and recreate them? Think about, too, what would happen if your web site got hacked, or your server failed? When was the last time a complete copy was made of your web site to a different location?
No matter what size your business is, it's vital to address these concerns in a quick and efficient manner. Whether your business is a large enterprise or a one man band, the business impact of losing important documents would be the same.
Do you need to make a backup copy of every file on every computer system?
Many people and companies only back up the data files they have created themselves, and rely on having re-install media for their computers. This approach requires re-install media from operating systems (Microsoft Windows or Linux), hardware drivers and software installation CDs/DVDs for everything originally installed on the computer. This can be a very time consuming and frustrating process.
A better solution is to backup all your data files daily and create reinstall images for all your systems with all your software already installed. This means that you can quickly get back to a working state without needing worry about manually reinstalling data files.
