Text:  Backing up and recovering your business critical data continues to be one of the most important steps in successfully managing an IT organization.  Facing increased security threats and the associated costs of managing your backup using legacy technologies, protecting your data has never been more challenging.

Header: Cloud backup

Text: To stave off data-loss disasters, use one of the best cloud backup services. It will automatically copy your most precious personal files to offsite cloud storage servers that you can reach from anywhere with an internet connection.

Cloud backup services exist for the simple reason that you can’t always count on an external hard drive — one attached to your PC, or a drive on your local network — to provide the safest backups. One single theft, flood or fire could make you lose both your computer and its backup drive at the same time.

Header:  Backup Repository Rotating Drives

Text:  A backup repository can use rotated drives. Rotated drives can be detachable USB or eSATA hard drives. This scenario can be helpful if you want to store backups on several external hard drives that you plan to regularly move between different locations.

To use rotated drives, you must enable the This repository is backed by rotated hard drives option in the advanced settings of the backup repository. When this option is enabled, Backup or Replication recognizes the backup target as a backup repository with rotated drives and uses a specific algorithm to make sure that the backup chain created on these drives is not broken.

Header:  3-2-1 Approach

Text:  The 3-2-1 rule is the way to go – at least 3 copies of your data on at least 2 different media with at least 1 backup copy offsite.

What is “best” depends entirely on your specific circumstances and environment.

To expand on that, how much data needs to be backed up, how often you need to backup, how quickly you need to be able to recover your data, is it for backup only or also for redundancy to minimize downtime, etc.

At a minimum, every company should at least have onsite backups to some removable storage devices as well as a cloud backup system in place.
