There are many types of Backup Services available and every business has different needs.It is still a huge concern that so many people don't even consider backing up their data until they have been through a situation where they have lost data that was very important to them or their business which in many cases, can end up costing a lot of time or money to recover.
What It Involves
The first steps to designing and implementing an Automated Backup Procedure is identifying the risks involved within the practice and the priorities associated with the different types of data used throughout your system. Every system is different and has different values attached to their data.
Once a complete risk assessment has been performed, it is then up to us to identify the best combination of technologies and solutions to suite your business needs.
What Is Produced
Based on the requirements of your practice, a huge range of backups are able to be implemented in order to recover your data from a disaster quickly, easily and be confident that you will be up and running with little or no hassle. All backups are transportable and should always be stored on at least 3 separate secure locations.
A typical backup implementation will store backups locally and offsite or online.There are many scenarios that would require the quick restore of a backup, some of these scenarios are:
- Hard Drive Failure
- File or Database Corruption
- Disasters such as fires, flooding or earthquakes
- Files Modified or Deleted Unintentionally
The most common backup types available are:
- Data Backups
- Machine Backups
- Shadow Copy Services (VSS)
- Database Backups
- Email\Exchange Backups
Why It Is Done

Why is it then, that so often the decisions supporting this data is treated with almost total disregard with respect to its security, integrity, accessibility and concurrency; left to the elements in spreadsheets, files, PC databases and ASCII files.
SDC can help with the difficult task of managing your precious data and implementing secure and thorough measures to make sure your data safe, accurate and accessible.
