You might feel like a bit of a goose if you lost all your work forever.
No doubt about it
Most business owners realise backups are important.
Whether it's computer hackers, ransomware, power surges, fires, floods, a robot Arnold Schwarzenegger who arrives from the future to destroy your office... there are just too many ways to lose all your data.
What's less well understood is that there's a lot more to this than just whether or not you have copies of your files saved somewhere.
How does that work? Well, when you lose all your data, you lose something else important too: time.
The more hours of work it takes to get back on track, the longer your staff are unproductive, the more expensive the incident.
Here's a few things to consider.
If you have terabytes of hard drive images on cloud storage and you're on the lowest tier of the NBN.. well, that's a bit like filling a swimming pool through a drinking straw.
You might be waiting all week.
Recovering the same data from somewhere on your local network might only take hours.
It's going to take longer if your technician has to put a plan together on the spot.
If your backups are never tested, it'll wait until you actually need them for you to find out they're corrupted.
The absolute nightmare scenario - discovering that you're completely without backups - is thankfully very rare.
Almost always, there's a way to piece things together.
Cut to measure
The right solution depends on how large your business is and how much each hour of downtime costs you.
That's different to for everyone and it can also change as you level up and grow.
Not sure where you fit in? That's okay. We're happy to talk you through it.
