How does backup & Disaster recovery Work?

For servers hosting applications, files and databases; we recommend an on-premise solution.  Data backup and recovery services save full-system images directly to a backup appliance with instant local recovery capabilities.  These backup images are then pushed to the cloud to maintain offsite copies.

If you store important information on your workstations, we can back them up locally as well, or implement a direct to cloud solution.  Restoration of this data will take longer since it must be downloaded from the cloud first, but does not rely on storage limitations of an on-site appliance.

Although your email is in the cloud, it’s just as important to back up that data.  We include Microsoft 365 backups in our user services plans.  Our M365 solution backs up your email, calendar, contacts & OneDrive files.

Spend less time worrying about the unexpected – equip your business with complete protection and recovery solutions.

The 3-2-1 data protection plan should be implemented for your servers.
Here’s how it works:

3-2-1 data protection plan
  • 3 – Have three copies of your data
  • 2 – Ensure these copies are on two different media types/devices
  • 1 – make sure at least one of these backups is located offsite

The first copy of your data is your production copy, the server that is actively running and undergoing changes. 
The second copy of your data is an on-site backup stored on a dedicated backup appliance.
The third copy of your data is a copy of the backup stored securely in the cloud

While having on-site backups is important for a fast recovery, it’s essential to also keep an offsite copy in case the on-premise backup is lost in cases of water damage, fire, theft, or other physical interruptions.

Establishing a 3-2-1 data protection plan, or better, should be at the heart of any strategic process if a business relies on it’s systems to operate efficiently.  

We work on backup plans and disaster recovery solutions all day, every day. We’re here to help whether you have questions/concerns about your existing solution or are looking to implement a new plan.
