The Protection of Data Is Best with BDR

Data backup is a critical part of any business endeavor, because if you don’t have one all of your hard work could be taken away in an instant. It’s not great to think about, but your business’ infrastructure could be put at risk of sudden annihilation. With so much at risk, what is the best way to approach managing your data? There are a lot of options out there, but there is only one that will allow your organization to get back in action following a crippling data loss incident.

The traditional tape backup that many organizations still rely on them were once the gold standard of data backup and disaster recovery. Businesses would store data on magnetic tape reels and keep them stored on-site in the event of a disaster. The problem with this method is that it is both time-consuming, unreliable, and prone to user error–all traits that you certainly don’t want to deal with when your business’s future is on the line.

The biggest issue with tape backup is that it isn’t automatic. Your employees would have to set a new tape every evening after hours to run the backup. This, of course, brings with it many other issues. Since employees are the ones doing it rather than an automated system, there is much more room for user error. All it takes is someone not setting the tape as needed to lose an entire day’s worth of progress. You don’t need us to tell you that this is an issue, especially if there are high-profile projects being worked on every day.

Another big reason why tape backup is not the ideal way to secure your assets is because it is limited in its capacity for data storage. Due to how resource-intensive tape backups can be, they can generally only happen once at the end of the day, after all operations have ceased. This means that up to 24 hours of data could be lost in an instant. This might not seem like a big deal, but a lot can happen in one day. Furthermore, tape backups can be destroyed by a fire or flood–any situation that works to destroy your computing infrastructure. They need to be stored in a secure off-site location where they can be restored quickly in the event of a data loss incident.

All of these issues are alleviated by working with a data backup and disaster recovery solution (BDR) from Apex IT Group.
