You know that feeling when you’ve spent ages on something and then at the last hurdle you’ve lost all that work!
Well multiply that tenfold and more and that is what it could feel like if you don’t complete regular backups of your data. It might for accidental deletion or for total loss, but whatever it needs to be reliable and comprehensive. What’s more if all backups can be accessed from the source server then your data really is not safe, so don’t take the risk.
Turncloud use a variety of technologies for backup and data security including RAID configurations, external drives, mirrored NAS and cloud backup. Alternatively a local server backup can be used which is then replicated to our own servers, providing non-connected offsite backup, monitored by us.
Equally SharePoint, Dropbox or Google Drive also need to be backed up. Granted they offer a level of file recovery, however from experience a folder level recovery can be much more problematic. And scarily an infection of a connected machine could wipe out your entire Dropbox folder. However a small monthly fee for the storage used can give you peace of mind, as the folder can easily be synced and a regular backup taken.
