Today most companies utilize computers in the dissemination of their services. Whether you run an office that deploys dozens of computers and multiple servers, a busy restaurant with a full-scale point of sale system, or a contractor that only needs one computer with invoicing software, you depend on your data. Since most businesses also provide goods and services for many people that indirectly depend on it, having a plan to protect the business from potential devastation is important.
Business-critical data can be corrupted in a multitude of ways. Malware, hackers, hardware failure, and even user error could put your business in a very precarious position if you fail to set up contingencies. In fact, a majority of small and medium-sized businesses will fail within 18 months if they are faced with a major data-loss incident. Our network-attached backup and disaster recovery system will ensure data that is lost isn’t lost for long.
The BDR works wonders because organizations understand that in order to have any continuity in the face of disaster, critical information must be maintained. The device is attached to your network, and set up to your needs. Once you decide what business-critical data you want to protect, a full backup is performed. Subsequently the system will, at intervals that you choose, back up only files that are changed. This creates a much more lightweight solution than using traditional tape backups or manual HDD-to-HDD backups, as many organizations still do.
The best part of the solution is that while the protected data is backed up on the NAS BDR, it is also automatically uploaded to the cloud. Hosted in an off-site data center, your data will be redundant in multiple places, both onsite and off, and ready for recovery when you need it. This provides the organization the secure data protection they are looking for in a backup system, without the manual work and downtime that many of yesterday’s top backup systems required.
