I am running a small business. Recently I have installed servers to bring up my business online. An employee of mine suggested having backups. I don’t know much about this, so I need help for small business server backup solutions.
Guide To Small Business Server Backup Solutions.
I am qualified enough to answer your query about small business server backup solutions. Well, for a small business owner, I will start off by assuming that you already run a few servers (not too many). Data Backups are an integral part of office security nowadays. Advantages of having a data backup are that it protects your important data from theft, fire, natural disaster, etc.
Generally, a good backup strategy involves 2/3 copies of the data:
• Offline Backup: You maintain another server in your office/anywhere else. These are not very secure and often may be unusable in your time of need.
• Online Backup: This involves maintaining a copy of your data through an online backup service and securely storing on a server in a professional data center. But, your data will be transferred over the internet. This is a lot secure and modern thus naturally comes with a price. There are currently many companies offering storages at a reasonable rate.
