Is your data safe?
To a business owner, your data is priceless. The loss of your data can put you out of business, In fact, according to Home Office Computing magazine, 30 percent of all businesses that have a major fire go out of business within a year. Seventy percent fail within five years.
Having a basic backup plan in place can bring peace of mind that in the event of a fire, theft, or disaster that your data will be recoverable and you will have one less thing to worry about when getting your business back on its feet.
Having a local backup is the bare minimum recommend. This can be backup to tape, external hard drive, etc. Local backups are quick and easy for recovering a single file or folder. However, in the event of a disaster, your local backup device will more than likely be missing or destroyed. This is why we recommend a local backup in addition to one of the options below.
