With World Backup Day yesterday, it's an excellent time to talk about backups. Everybody knows they need to back up their data. It’s been drilled into us for years, right? But when we engage new prospects, we're amazed at how few companies are backing up properly - or at all. So let's start with the basics.
We talk to clients all the time about the need to back up data and to plan for how you will continue to operate in the event of a disaster. Many of the folks we deal with may back up their server off-site (we insist on it), but generally take a 'it can't happen to me' attitude. Well. . .it most certainly CAN happen to you! At about 5:30pm on April 4, 2018, an EF1 tornado touched down in my back yard. Literally. My. Back. Yard.
