Creating Your Backup Strategy
Our experienced IT engineers will work alongside you and your team to determine the best backup and business continuity for your business.
Before introducing any backup system, we follow a checklist alongside you and your team:
Determining the data to be backed up
This involves identifying the critical data that needs to be protected, such as business-critical documents, databases, and other important files.
Choosing a backup method
There are several backup methods to choose from, including full backups, incremental backups, differential backups, and more. The choice of method will depend on the amount of data being backed up, the frequency of backups, and the required recovery time objective.
Deciding on backup storage
This involves choosing where to store backups, such as on-site storage devices, cloud storage, or a combination of both.
Setting a backup schedule
This involves determining how often backups should occur and at what times to ensure that the most recent data is being backed up.
Testing the backup process
Regularly testing the backup process helps ensure that backups are being made properly and that the data can be successfully restored in the event of a disaster.
Documenting the backup process
Documentation helps ensure that the backup process can be easily repeated and that the steps can be followed in the event of a disaster.
Regularly reviewing and updating the backup strategy
Regularly reviewing and updating the backup strategy helps ensure that it remains relevant and effective in light of changing business needs and technological advancements.
