Your business relies on important information that is created and stored on your computers. Unfortunately, computers are a combination of mechanical parts and electronics which degrade over time and can fail. Your computers can be repaired or replaced – but how would you cope with losing your important information, especially historical data that may not be able to be manually re-created?
To ensure the survival of your business, the right backup strategy is crucial. This is the first step in protecting your important information. Backup solutions come in many ’shapes and sizes’, so which one is right for your business?
Computer Troubleshooters will discuss with you:
- Where is your important information saved?
- How often does it change?
- Who changes it?
- How much could you re-create and how long would it take you?
- Who needs access to be able to restore it?
We’ll also discuss the various scenarios that would cause you to need your backup and how long your business could survive without your important information. All of these factors will help us to recommend the backup solution that is right for you.
This could consist of an on-site scheduled backup, a near-real-time backup (every 15 minutes) and/or secure offsite storage, including specialist software to ensure that your emails and databases are also covered.
Backups are not a ‘set and forget’ process – they are only as good as your last confirmed restoration test. All small businesses should have a process in place for monitoring and testing their backups on a regular basis, to ensure that you can recover your information when you need it. Computer Troubleshooters can manage your backups for you and will even provide you with a monthly report of our findings. This allows backup problems to be identified and resolved as soon as possible, so you can be sure that your information is protected.
