BDR Is Better Than Just Data Backup Alone

BDR Is Better Than Just Data Backup Alone

Maintaining a proper data backup system is one of the most important parts of business continuity, even if it’s something you’d rather not think about. If you don’t take data backup seriously, your organization is at considerably greater risk. We’ll walk you through the proper steps to make your organization’s future more secure through data backup.


Data Backup vs Disaster Recovery: What’s the Difference?
Some organizations use data backup and disaster recovery as if they are interchangeable, but they are two very different things. In reality, data recovery isn’t possible without data backup, and vice versa.

Data backup consists of actually creating the record of your data to be restored at a later date, whereas disaster recovery is how and when you restore the data from the data backup. Basically, one of them can’t happen without the other, and they are both integral parts of the business continuity process.

Details on Data Backup
When considering data backup prioritize the data that will ensure minimal operational deficiency during the restoration period. In other words, how much data is acceptable to get back into a situation where your business can operate as intended? Remember, the best backup system is one that happens automatically, so think about how the process is being initiated, too. The ideal solution is one that isn’t affected by user error.

Details on Disaster Recovery
Disaster recovery is focused primarily on how long it takes for a restoration to occur. In other words, how fast can you get back to a decent state of operations following a disaster. A significant part of this process is ensuring that you have access to a data backup in at least three locations: one on-site, one in the cloud, and one located in a secure off-site data center. It's important to regularly test your backups to ensure that your process works, in advance of a disaster. 

Machado Consulting can help your business implement an all-in-one Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solution, enabling even a small business with a limited budget to maintain a proper data backup system.

Fishing for Answers to Keep Phishing Attacks from Sinking Your Business

Phishing attacks have been in the social consciousness now for a while, and for good reason: it is the predominant way that hackers gain access to secured networks and data.
