On Tuesday 6th August Simon Fossel explained that there’s more to backing up your business data than meets the eye, and why it’s vital to any organisation.
Whilst it’s not that complicated, Simon explained that there are good reasons why an organisation should pay close attention to its backups. He spoke about recovering individual files like emails or other documents, or in extreme circumstances, having to restore everything!
The group briefly handed around the backup props that Simon brought, a USB Hard drive and a Tape Drive while Simon explained about them, online backups and backup software. He covered the costs associated and his expert opinion of the pro’s and con’s.
Simon concluded that as a business owner, office manager or financial director etc, we should be considering the following;
- How far back does your backup go?
- Who is monitoring your backups?
- Is everything being backed up (laptops / remote users)?
- When was your backup last tested (test restore)?
Please email Simon Simon.Fossel@amicitia.com if you would like him and Amicitia to demystify your back up situation or indeed just test it for you to make sure it is fully functional. Amicitia provide free backup monitoring for their customers and perform a test restore as part of their scheduled on site system health check.Visit the website www.amicitia.com for more information.
