Data Backup & Recovery

Having a robust and timely backup and recovery strategy is critical to the long term success of a business because it ensures your data and day-to-day operating procedures can be restored seamlessly in the event of data loss or corruption.

Unexpected data loss events can be caused by a variety of factors, such as hardware failure, software bugs, natural disasters, human error, or a cyber attack. A good backup and recovery strategy can help minimize the impact of such events and ensure that critical information can be quickly restored, minimizing downtime, potential loss of revenue, productivity and damage to your reputation.

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.
