If your network or computer suddenly crashed and ALL your data was erased, how long would it take before your computer or entire business was back up and running as usual?
If you can’t confidently answer this question, then we urge you to find out more about K-TEC’s many Backup Solutions.
Lets put it this way: Have you ever lost maybe an hours worth of work or a single document because your computer crashed right in the middle of something you were working on? Now remember how frustrating that was? Maybe by chance you managed to recover your file(s), or alternately you had to stay up all night so you could re-do it.
Now, imagine losing FAR more data than that. Your entire system:
All your accounting data and history.
Your client records, history and database.
All the work files and templates you’ve spent a countless amount of time developing and perfecting…
Could you even begin to put a price tag on it? Probably not – yet so many business owners aren’t 100% certain that they could be back up and running after a disaster. It seems these same business owners are simply praying that their current drive or backup solution is working and properly storing a usable copy of all their crucial data in the event something goes wrong.
Simply having a copy of your data doesn’t guarantee you will be covered in the event of a technical disaster at all – something many businesses owners and residential users don’t fully realize until they are faced with hassle of restoring the data. For example…
Let’s say we made an exact copy of all the items in your house right now and put them into an offsite storage facility – technically speaking that would be like a “backup” of all your data. If one day your house just collapsed, and fell to the ground, we would first have to rebuild the HOUSE (which would be the same as your server, software and supporting environment in this case) BEFORE we could bring back all of your items back from the storage facility.
That’s why simply having an offsite copy of your data doesn’t guarantee you’ll be back up and running FAST. It could take several days – possibly weeks – before everything was restored to the way it was; and that’s assuming you have the data in a good state and all the originally installed software cd’s.
The reality is that you need someone monitoring and periodically ensuring the integrity of the backups remain, and to make absolutely certain everything is working just fine.
