Data Backup and Recovery
Because data is the heart of the enterprise, it's crucial for you to protect it. And to protect your organization's data, you need to implement a data backup and recovery plan. Backing up files can protect against accidental loss of user data, database corruption, hardware failures, and even natural disasters, and after all we life in South Africa where the crime rate is high. It's your job as a business owner or network administrator to make sure that backups are performed and stored in a secure location.
Protecting your data just makes good common sense. If you have data that you don't want to loose - and most of us do - you owe it to yourself to protect your data.
Having an Off-Site Data Backup is just as important to the average home PC user or small business as it is to big corporate company. Disasters can happen at any time, and it will give you peace of mind to know that a copy of your crucial data will survive these catastrophes.
Even though your home or business insurance may cover the replacement of your PC, it is unlikely that it will cover the cost of data recovery, in the case of theft or fire no data can be recovered that data will be lost forever, unless you have a off site back-up system in place.
Is a data backup solution part of your computer plans? People spend thousands of rand to protect their systems against viruses, but forget to backup there valuable data. Do you have a way to protect yourself if something goes wrong with your computer or data? Computers are a useful part of our lives but we don't always protect ourselves from their loss be it fire, theft or hardware failure.
We often don't consider how fragile our computer data really is. Do you keep sensitive information on your computer that you would be upset if you lost it? Not sure? Consider this. If I told you that I was going to format your hard drive right now and you will lose all of the information on your computer, would you be ready? Or would you need to get a few files first... If you are in the second group, chances are you don't have a proper data backup solution in place to help you handle disasters.
