It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that a lot can go wrong with business just about every day. If something were to go horribly wrong and you lost access to your data infrastructure, what would you do? Let’s take a look at some of these disaster scenarios and how much data backup and disaster recovery can make a difference for your organization.
Technology does not last forever, and you cannot expect it to either. Your components will fail eventually, so do your part now to prepare for such an event before it occurs. Monitoring solutions these days are excellent at predicting hardware failures and other such events, so consider implementing a solution like this to keep hardware failure from becoming a problem for your business.
If your business is not in a disaster zone, it can be easy to think that your organization won’t suffer from one. Unfortunately, even disasters are not limited by geographic locations; certain disasters are more prevalent in disaster zones, but others aren’t exclusive. Businesses are susceptible to hurricanes, tornadoes, structural fires, power surges, earthquakes, and so on, so you’ll need to have a strategy in place to address them from both data and human resource aspects.
It’s hard to tell when your business will be struck by threats, especially those infiltrating through the Internet. Regular backups can keep threats from derailing your organization’s operations by giving you an out in the event you need to “go nuclear” on any threats that breach your infrastructure.
People make mistakes, so you need to be ready for the fallout of these mistakes, too. Sometimes they can be so bad that you don’t have any other choice but to use a data backup to resolve the issue. User error can be avoided through adequate training as well as access control for critical systems and important data.
