Part of being a successful entrepreneur is having a positive mental attitude. After all, pessimists wouldn’t make it far. Stats, however, tell a story regardless of a business owner’s perception. Statistically, most businesses will have to deal with some sort of “disaster”. That is: a situation where your business will be very much at risk. For this reason, we recommend BDR.
BDR, short for backup and disaster recovery can’t completely stop your business from falling victim to a “disaster”, but it can keep that situation from ruining your business. The BDR solution we offer has the following features:
- Data is saved in at least three places: the original on your network infrastructure, an on-site backup, and one in the cloud.
- These backups are incrementally updated with any changes made throughout the day, rather than waiting until after hours (if there is such a thing).
- The cloud backup can take the place of your primary infrastructure if need be, allowing your operations to continue until you can procure a new one.
These features come with the following benefits:
Improved Flexibility and Reliability
If something terrible would happen to your business, you would probably expect to lose some data. With a BDR, whatever data is backed up is safe, period. That is a great benefit, but what’s better is that regardless of the problem, the BDR can function as a server, meaning you can manage a situation’s downtime, a core component of saving your business.
The BDR assists in maintaining control over its technology investments. Your data is stored onsite and in the cloud, and since it is billed as a service, you can simply add it to your operational budget rather than purchasing the hardware and software needed to properly back up your entire business’ data.
Ultimately, the BDR is the simplest and most cost-effective service you can pay for. Your business needs to keep a backup of its data, you can pay a static charge per month to protect that data, and if something terrible does happen, you know that your data is safe and accessible. Extremely simple.
What’s best, if you need to restore your data from the cloud for any reason, migration is a simple process. If you want to learn more about BDR or how to keep your business’ data safe in these uncertain times, give RedRock Information Security a call at (616) 534-1500 today.
