Every organization must know the critical importance of regular backing up computer systems and data and of being able to restore any or all of them in the event of a system outage, hardware failure, natural disaster or other data loss. Creating a backup plan for your data before such an event occurs can help you to avoid such disasters.
Some of the backup strategies are
External Hard Drives
One of the most important data backup strategies we can take as a preventive measure against loss of data is to copy all the content from CPU to an external hard disk drive (Lewis, 2019). In order to make this possible, we can purchase an external drive at any store and the prices of these drives usually depends on the amount of data they can hold (Lewis, 2019).
Online Data Backups
Another effective way to backup data is to use online services. We can avail these services through yearly or monthly basis payments (Lewis, 2019). The advantage of using this data backup plan is that it allows us to have an additional place to store our data in addition to an external hard drive (Lewis, 2019).
Use of Cloud Backup Strategies
Businesses are increasingly using IT services and it is essential to use a cloud backup that will keep your data safe and protected (Edwards, 2019). Without a safeguard, your company can lose valuable data through a natural disaster or malicious software (Edwards, 2019). Fortunately, data backup and recovery has never been simpler (Edwards, 2019). Cloud is generally considered as a safe and reliable place to store data. Storage in cloud usually do not lose or damage files (Idealstor, 2019). Using cloud backup strategies, organizations can have reliability, security in file transfer, reduced costs, better management of IT resources, improves compliance safeguards and eliminates tape backups (Idealstor, 2019).
