If you are not able to answer this question, it may be time to find out. There are some common misunderstandings about data backups for small and medium sized businesses. Did you know:
#1: Tape backups are no longer a dependable way to secure data. Data has gotten huge, and tape backups have huge failure rates among IT networks. They often appear to be working but in the event of a disaster often data is not recoverable. There are new options for data backups.
#2: Backing up data is never a sole solution for quickly restoring your network. It takes more than a copy of your data to keep your business up and running. You have critical IT infrastructure that must be inventoried, safeguarded, and maintained as a whole. A strategy must be put in place for full IT infrastructure recovery within the timeframe you require for business continuity.
#3: The trust system is not enough. Even when your company has a data backup plan in place, periodic restores must be performed to ensure the backup is not only working, but also the restore process is fast and effective. It happens over and over. Small businesses lose both time and money when data cannot be recovered because the leadership team thought a worthy plan was in place.
