Why Do I Need Automatic and Verifiable Backup System?

Making copies of your data manually might work in case you want to archive certain files and thus prevent data loss. But hard drives and servers fail more often than expected, and this strategy will not work for large amounts of data. Automatic backup systems suppose that some fault will definitely cause loss of data and expect such a data loss to occur all the time. It makes one or more verifiable copies of your data, enabling you to restore data in case of hardware or software failure.

Unlike most archiving systems such as external hard drives or USB drives, a reliable automatic backup system should be remote to make it immune to emergencies and natural disasters at your premises. Your verifiable backups are stored at a remote location, thus enabling business continuity even in case of fire, flood, or earthquake.

On-Site Computers has automated backup solutions that help your Minnesota business to avoid the consequences of data loss caused by a range of actors and negative scenarios.

Five Greatest Causes of Data Loss

  • Mechanical damage to hardware
  • Accidental deletion of files or human error
  • Viruses, malware, and ransomware
  • Power failures, fires, and natural disasters
  • Computer theft

Automatic and Verifiable Backups Ensure Business Continuity in Any Scenario

Making a copy of your files and storing it in a separate physical location is the only working way to ensure you will be able to restore data as soon as possible and make backups immune to disasters at your office location. These automated backups are called off-site backup where every piece of data is verified to guarantee you have a full and recent copy of the data.

Verification of automated backups also ensures that backups are checked and guaranteed against failure. But what are the core features of a verifiable system for automatic backups, and what benefits does such a system offer?

Benefits of Verifiable Automatic Backups

  • Redundancy. Copy of business-critical data is stored remotely, ready to get to work immediately.
