How Much Damage Can The Weather Do To Your Business? Lots.

How Much Damage Can The Weather Do To Your Business? Lots.

Nobody ever wants to admit that their business has a problem with security. Unfortunately, as the one responsible for the future of your organization, you have to consider all possible outcomes of any potential data loss incident. Furthermore, many of these incidents are beyond your control. Thankfully, you can soothe the pain of a data loss disaster by thinking ahead and planning for the worst.

While you can protect against cyber security issues, you’ll also need to be wary of unplanned disasters that could threaten the future of your business infrastructure. Everything from natural disasters to just flat-out bad luck will come for you someday, so it’s important to have contingencies put into place just in case you find yourself in a bad situation.

You basically need to think of your business’s future in the terms of something rather fragile, like an egg. You could crack the egg’s shell at any time unless you do something to keep it safe. This is why you store it in the refrigerator in a controlled environment, tucked away within its carton for future use. In a similar manner, you can only keep your business’s data secure by keeping it in a safe, controlled environment where it can’t be harmed by external factors like the weather or hackers.

Data isolation such as this is generally required to preserve your data infrastructure, but isn’t usually possible with your traditional tape backup system. This is because your business takes one backup a day after the office has closed for the evening. This tape would then be stored off-site or in-house, depending on your needs. Yet, storing it on-site creates problems for your business by exposing it to the possibility of being misplaced, stolen, or even destroyed by a disaster. Since you only take one a day, you could lose a full day of work, disrupting progress on an important project.

The downtime is an even crueler punishment, as it forces your business to twiddle its thumbs while you’re waiting for your data to be restored. Traditional tape backup can take anywhere from several hours to whole days, especially if you have a lot of data that must be restored. Naturally, when no work is being done, progress is halted, which can be detrimental to your business.

A backup system that relies on the cloud can allow for more dynamic data preservation through a virtualized environment. You gain the ability to take multiple backups as often as every fifteen minutes, which keeps data loss at an all-time low. Plus, you can recover your data in a moment’s notice by restoring data directly to the BDR device itself, providing recovery that takes only an instant compared to the sluggish rate at which tape works.
