Downtime in an IT department has a crippling effect an organization cant serve its customers and it cant execute transactions, leading, potentially, to thousands of dollars of lost revenue. Current data shows 73 percent of companies experienced an outage in the last year and less than 10 percent of those outages were the result of natural disasters. Most disasters are related to human error and minor power outages, and the expectation is that data recovery should be fast. However, using a backup solution to meet business continuity needs will not work. Data backup is simply not a comprehensive information and application recovery solution. It is important to have a backup solution in place. Backup protects your data in case of theft (a single laptop to office break-ins), employee accidents (deletion of an important file), or a technical issue (crashed hard drive). With this protection, you can access a copy of your data and restore it easily.Common misconception examples of backup methods include off-site tape and cloud storage. Many companies think these methods will protect them if theres an outage or a disaster. The unfortunate reality is that while backup is generally inexpensive and convenient, it does not ensure quick recovery when a disaster occurs it only ensures that the data is stored somewhere and can be accessed eventually.
In todays digital world the old adage Plan for the worst, and hope for the best is a no longer a good place to start as its totally inadequate when considering protection of critical data.
