The benefits include: Low downtime means virtually constant uptime for customers, to build trust, improve company reputation and minimize the financial losses. Furthermore, companies are often required to keep accounting and financial data for compliance with national or international laws.
As an entrepreneur, it’s important to lower many risks by installing a sophisticated system to back up your company data that enables smooth recovery whenever necessary.
However, disaster recovery can only be successful if you prepare a plan for your data backup to ensure it can be restored as smoothly as possible later on.
Differential backups Only backup the data that has changed or been added since the last full backup. It requires only considerably less storage space compared to full backup. Shorter backup intervals are possible and individual restore points can be deleted without affecting others.
Incremental backups This method copies the data that has changed or been added since the last incremental or full backup. All incremental backups and a full backup can be used to restore systems and data. Very short backup intervals are possible as the backup does not require much storage space.
Online backup media like cloud backup and others are theoretically more vulnerable to an outside attack, but most cloud computing providers have developed methods to keep your data safe, such as multi-level data center security concepts and geo-redundancy.
Hybrid solution use both backup methods: You will be well-prepared for every emergency situation if you keep the your dataset with off-premises (e.g. a hard drive in a bank deposit box) and an online copy in the cloud.
