In modern data backup solutions, you will have the flexibility you need to choose the backup strategy that will allow you to maximize your storage and network while minimizing the time that it takes to recover data when needed.
Core to any backup strategy you must consider:
- What is being protected?
- What is the backup frequency needed to enable my recovery objectives?
- How do you ensure things are ready for recovery?
Nearly everyone considers items one and two when choosing backup solutions for business but often we forget the most important item — can it be restored when needed? When choosing data backup solutions, always make sure that your backup solution has an automated way to test and secure backup data for recoverability before it goes into storage.
