Backup & Recovery

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.

 

Backup & Recovery

What are the backup and recovery options?

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.

So, what sort of things should you be thinking about for your backups?

  • Backups can be to a number of different media types
  • Layered backups give 1st, 2nd & 3rd lines of defence
  • Backups need to be offsite both physically & virtually
  • Online backups need a 2nd offload to protect against hacking
  • Speed of recovery can be helped by technologies such as shadow copy
  • Backups must be tested

Why not put yours to the test? Ask us to try your current backups – you might be surprised by what we find!
