The old saying is “out of sight, out of mind.” However, when it comes to off‑site backups, the saying should be “out of sight, peace of mind!” Off‑site backups provide a safety net for all the vital data that keeps businesses running every day, allowing companies and users to keep a record of their files in a secure location for those rainy days. If you accidently delete a file, you can grab it right from your latest backup. If your computer dies or goes missing, you can reload your files or even a whole image of your system from your off‑site location.
It is important for every business to have a disaster recovery plan to make sure that your services can continue, no matter what gets thrown your way. One great example of this is how off‑site backups can keep your business running in the event of weather-induced power outages. During the latest Tropical Storm Isaias, many of our clients lost power and were told they would be down for several days. However, those with an off‑site backup had the ability to have their environment set up in the cloud—thanks to their data being accessed from their off‑site storage location. This meant companies were able to keep working while power was being restored.
