Losing your company data is a disaster. According to a current Symantec preparedness survey, 75% of all small businesses have no disaster recovery plan, and only 25% are extremely confident that they can restore lost data.
We are not looking for natural disasters here in Lancaster County, but what about the people on your payroll? Our backup vendor, Datto, tells us that fully 95% of their restores in the past 12 months were employee related. From the stories I hear from our clients, and my own experience, this number is right on target.
Backing up to thumb drives, hard drives or tape, and sending them out of the building is not a good backup system. Can you say without hesitation that, yes, I could do a test restore and it will work? Does your current provider do live test restores on a regular basis and show you the report? Remember, if your system is idle, then your employees are idle, and you are losing sales and opportunity. If you have even the slightest doubt about your ability to restore you data and have no downtime, give me a call. I can help you with a free backup audit that will answer that question quickly.
