HURRICANES, POWER SPIKES, FIRE AND THEFT ARE NOT THE ONLY RISKS TO YOUR DATA. A SIMPLE CUP OF COFFEE CAN BE JUST AS DANGEROUS IF IT SPILLS ON YOUR LAPTOP. YOUR DATA IS AT RISK RIGHT NOW. THAT’S WHY BACKUPS ARE SO IMPORTANT.
Three Types of Backup
This is a local copy of your data, whether to a CD, DVD, flash drive, thumb drive, external hard drive, or another computer. It doesn’t have to be pretty, it just has to work. We can show you how to make local backups to different kinds of media and even program your computer to automatically do it at a scheduled time. There are many advantages, disadvantages and pitfalls to consider when using one of these devices. You may think you are doing it right but you may not find out that what you’ve been doing is not working correctly until its too late.
Let us guide you to make your backups reliable and useful.
This is a copy of your data that is stored at another location, sent over the internet and available online all the time. There are many good online backup services available, but which one is right for you? They may all appear to do similar things, but it is not a one-size-fits-all market. For example, if your office runs specific types of software unique to your industry, a standard backup solution may not work for you, or it may need to be configured in a special way to be effective. Also, desktop backup software is not the same thing as Server baclkup software. The functions, plans and prices are NOT the same. Please contact us to help you pick the right online backup service for you and that it works the way you expect it to.
This is a when you employ BOTH of the above scenarios. There are pros and cons to both backups above and you don’t want to hope and pray that your backup will work when you need it to. Be sure that your disaster recovery plan is reliable. You should have a local offline backup in place connected to your computers or server for quick restores, AND a cloud service to double-backup your most crucial files should something happen to your equipment onsite.
Why our backups are better:
- We charge a FLAT FEE no matter how much you back up. Just .35-50/GB is all you pay. There is no contract, no obligation, no commitment. The more your store the less you pay per GB.
- Check the fine print on Mozy and Carbonite. You cannot retrieve data that is more than 30 days old. They only keep the most recent files you’ve been using. We NEVER delete a file. No matter how many changes you’ve made to it or how long ago you’ve deleted it from your computer. NEVER. Just point, click, pick a date to recover from. BOOM, there’s your file.
