What Can Lost Data Cost You?

Even a small amount of lost data can cost you real money.  What if your accounting records for the last two weeks suddenly vanished.  Even going back to an old archive file still leaves you with a hefty cost to recreate the missing entries.  Now you have to pay for computer repairs and extra personnel hours!

Over the years, computers have become more reliable, and  it might seem concerns about backups are a thing of the past.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Your data is at risk from every quarter.

  • Files that are accidentally deleted or “saved over.”
  • Data corruption, including Windows registry problems.
  • Hard drive failures.
  • Physical disasters (fires, floods, and storms).
  • Equipment theft.
  • Zero day viruses (that exploit a previously unknown weakness in computers and anti-virus systems)

Which Backup Option is Right for Your Business?

There are various network backup options available small businesses. The type of backup solution you choose will depend on your specific needs, such as the amount of data you need to back up, how often you need to back up, and how quickly you need to be able to restore your data in case of a failure. Here are some options:

  1. Local Backups: This is the most traditional form of backup, where data is backed up to local storage devices like external hard drives, NAS (Network Attached Storage), or tape drives. This method is usually faster and more secure, but it doesn’t provide protection against disasters like fire or flood that could destroy both the original data and the backups.
  2. Cloud Backups: These services back up data to remote servers over the internet. They’re generally easy to set up, provide excellent disaster protection, and allow for easy access from anywhere, but they can be slower than local backups, especially for large amounts of data, and there are ongoing costs for storage space.
  3. Hybrid Backups: This approach combines local and cloud backups. Important data can be backed up locally for fast access and recovery, and the local backups can be backed up to the cloud for disaster protection.
  4. Managed Backup Services: In this case, a managed service provider (MSP) handles all aspects of backup for a business, including setting up the backup system, monitoring it, and restoring data as necessary. This can be a good option for small businesses that don’t have a lot of IT expertise in-house.
  5. Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS): These services go a step further than regular backup services, providing not just data backup, but a full system backup that can be quickly restored to a working state in the event of a major disaster. This often includes backups of system settings and software, not just user data.
  6. Backup as a Service (BaaS): This is another form of managed backup, but typically refers to cloud-based backups specifically. The provider manages the backups, taking care of tasks like managing backup schedules and handling data recovery.
  7. Data Archiving: While not strictly a backup solution, data archiving services store older data that’s not needed for everyday operations but still needs to be retained. This can be a cost-effective solution for businesses that generate a lot of data and want to free up their primary storage resources.

Remember, no single backup solution is best for all circumstances, so it’s important to consider your specific needs and consult with Shiloh Service to determine the best solution for your business.
