  • Backup FAQ

    Q. Why do I need to Backup?
    A. Backing up ensures you have a copy of your data in the event of hardware failure, data corruption or accidental deletion.
    Q. My data is provided through a Cloud Service do I still need backup ?
    A. Yes, most cloud providers do NOT backup your data so it is your responsibility to ensure that you have a copy of your data.
    Q. I don't have fast Internet connections, will I be able to use a Cloud based backup ?
    A. Probably not, but you dont have to backup to cloud it is really a matter of what will fit with your requirements.
    Q. If I need to how long will it take to recover some or all of my data?
    A. A good question and one that is very often overlooked. The answer is that it depends on how much data you want to recover and where it is held.
  • Backup Planning

    • Scheduled backups for data such as files, email and databases should be performed at least once a day or more frequently depending on your recovery requirements.
    • Data never gets smaller so plan for backups to grow.
    • Archiving backups also takes up space depending on your business needs and how far back in time you want to keep.
    • You should have a Recovery Plan that details how you will recover some or all of your data.
    • Backups should be tested in line with your recovery plan.
    • Cloud based backups require good Internet connectivity, recovering large amounts of data from an Internet source may be more time consuming than you think so factor that in to your time constraints and costs.
