Debunking BCDR Myths: Backup is ‘Good Enough’
Here at Data Safe Group we know that data backup, business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) are foundational offerings for small and medium businesses. It's critical that we share that backup alone is no longer enough to protect business-critical data.
Business continuity is the new gold standard for ensuring smooth business operations for small and medium businesses driving local economies. When disaster strikes, due to human error, a cyberattack, or a natural disaster impacting a business’s servers, simply having a backup copy of business-critical data is no longer enough. Businesses need continuity to ensure operations can continue, avoiding the impacts of downtime, such as lost productivity and revenue.
On its own, backup leaves businesses susceptible to costly downtime. Recovering large data sets, such as the contents of an entire server, can be time-consuming. Not to mention the time it takes to procure new hardware if primary systems become inoperable. Meanwhile, productivity grinds to a halt, and revenue stops flowing.
That’s why businesses need a solution that enables fast restores in addition to data backup. For many organizations today, that means BCDR. BCDR solutions use backup, snapshot, virtualization, and the cloud to protect data and enable fast restores.
