Companies Look to BDR for Business Continuity

Companies Look to BDR for Business Continuity

Data backup is one of the most important parts of maintaining a business, but it’s not something that some organizations even consider until it’s too late to undo the damage done. In any case, data backup is a critical part of any successful business, but it’s not as simple as implementing a solution and hoping it works. We’ll walk you through the proper steps for making sure your organization has a successful data backup solution when it’s needed most.

Data Backup vs Disaster Recovery: What’s the Difference?
Many business professionals use data backup and disaster recovery as if they are interchangeable, but this is simply not the case. The truth is that data backup and disaster recovery are two very different practices that target specific parts of the business continuity process.

Data backup is the act of creating a separate physical copy of your data that can be restored at a later date, whereas disaster recovery includes the act of actually restoring the data using the data backup. In other words, one can’t happen without the other existing, so they are both integral to the continuity of a business’s successful restoration.

Details on Data Backup
In particular, you should be focused on which data (and how much of it) you want to back up. It’s important to remember that not all data will be as important as the rest, so it’s critical that you think about what data will be necessary to keep your organization functional during operational troubles. As a rule, you should try to back up as much as you can without it affecting your ability to restore later on. The ideal data backup process will happen automatically without any resource dedicated to running it, as user error has sunk more than a few businesses in need of a data backup.

Details on Disaster Recovery
On a related note, disaster recovery deals with the process of restoring your data following a disaster. The main way of measuring effectiveness of disaster recovery is speed--how fast can you get back into a comparable situation where you’re not operating at a loss. You should also consider where you’re trying to restore from; best practices dictate that you have at least three copies of your data with one stored off-site in a secure data center, one stored in the cloud, and one stored on-site for ease of access. Furthermore, you need to consider running automated tests to ensure the disaster recovery process will work the way you want it to when you need it most.
