In modern data backup solutions, you have the flexibility you need to choose the backup strategy that will maximize your storage and network while minimizing the time it takes to recover your data.
For any backup strategy, you must consider:
- What is being protected?
- What backup frequency do I need 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 their business but often we forget the most important item: Can data really 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.
