With a Managed Service Provider, Every Day is Backup Day

With a Managed Service Provider, Every Day is Backup Day

Tomorrow, March 31st, is the official World Backup Day, a day intended to remind us all of the importance of taking backups for the sake of data continuity. While this kind of day can be a valuable reminder of a critical best practice, we contend that your awareness of your backup (and the associated maintenance of it) should not be limited to a single day.

Let’s go over some essential backup best practices that you need to keep in mind for your business’ data.

What Lessons Should We Take from World Backup Day?

The whole idea behind World Backup Day is simple: normalize the practice of backing up data, while emphasizing its importance. We believe that the foundation of any solid backup strategy is to follow what is commonly known as the 3-2-1 Backup Rule.

The 3-2-1 Backup Rule:

The 3-2-1 Backup Rule is a simple way of looking at the accepted best practice for redundant (a good thing, in this case) data that is saved in case of emergency. It can effectively be summarized as follows:

  • You have at least three copies of all your data. One of these copies is your operational copy, the one you work from. The other two are backups.
  • You want your backups to be stored separately from your functioning data, on at least two different storage mediums.
  • You want at least one copy of your data to be stored offsite, in the cloud.

We Can Help You Get These Backups in Place

While it might not be possible to get your comprehensive backup up and running in time for World Backup Day, it’s like we said before—every day is an important day to have a backup. Give us a call to find out more about how we can help make backing up your business’ data far easier and more reliable by calling (270) 282-4926.
