Why backup your data?

People are not infallible. They make mistakes, and in fact, they make mistakes quite often. Emails with viruses are accidentally opened and important files with vital data are often mistakenly deleted. There’s no reason to fear these if you take frequent incremental backups of your systems. You can simply restore to a snapshot taken before the accident happened. Or you can recover the file from a date before it was deleted.

Top Reasons Why You Need to Backup Your Data

Simple Recovery

It’s really easy to protect from the little things and there’s the added benefit of being ready for the big things as well. Having an incremental backup means that you can recover any file even if it was deleted a while ago or any older version of a modified file from a previous day. An incremental backup saves a lot of drive space because only the differences are written and not the whole data. This way you can have versions for every day for all your data without filling the available space on disk too fast.

Saving Time

If any data loss occurs, you will have to work to rebuild it. This might be a simple case like having to rewrite an important email because the computer crashed just before you hit sent, or as serious as rebuilding your entire database. This is a tremendous work for you or your employees involved in working on data recovery, taking time that should be spent developing your business. Sometimes you might have to redo effectively everything. Not many businesses will survive that.

Other reasons for a comprehensive backup for companies

Although they can be seen as secondary reasons, they are equally important

audit and tax backups

Audits and Taxes

Many businesses are required to keep records for an extended period, either for tax purposes or because of various regulations. It’s easy to assume that your computers have you covered just because they’ve got your last few years’ worth of information on them. But as you might know, having just one copy is generally a huge mistake. Insuring that you’ve got an offsite backup of critical information can really save you if something goes wrong. The regulatory commissions really don’t care that you had a data disaster. All it means to them is that you’re not compliant and they can (and probably will) fine you.

backups can reduce downtime

Deadly Downtime

A 2007 University of Texas study showed that almost half of businesses that suffer major data loss never reopen. Many of these companies end up closing for good within two years of a major data loss. And even large data loss scenarios aren’t always the result of a disaster. Human hands are very capable of destroying a business through silly mistakes or oversights. Don’t think natural disasters are always responsible.

backups can give competitive advantage

Competitive Advantage

In the event of a disaster, the first business to get back up and running will take all the business of those that aren’t back on their feet. Not having a plan can mean your doors close for good. Proper planning means that your will stay open to those that worked with businesses that couldn’t survive data disaster. Simply backing up data and having an effective backup and disaster recovery plan in place can help mitigate these types of threat. You can be one of the surviving businesses if you think ahead.
