Could your company successfully restore last night’s data or an entire server should a catastrophic event occur? A company’s servers should be backed up every day and those backups should be tested at regular intervals. As the amount of information companies accumulate continues to expand, the need for data storage is growing exponentially. Yet frequently, data backup solutions fail to grow with the new environment. Companies that a few years ago backed up 50 gigabytes of data daily, now may backup a terabyte or even hundreds terabytes of data every day. Full tape backups that previously could be completed nightly are now only partial backups requiring multiple tapes. As a result, restores may take days and should one of those backup tapes fail, the data may be irretrievable. Your company cannot afford to lose valuable data or to spend precious time attempting to recover that data when this unfortunate event occurs. CSD tailors the data backup servers to your environment.
An effective backup strategy involves entirely backing up every server daily that have frequent data changes. Servers that typically fall in this category are: file, e-mail, web, database, and intranet servers. Due to the nature of servers that contain databases such as Exchange, SQL and Oracle, special backup agents must also be installed and updated frequently on those systems. Quite often even major corporations neglect to update their database backups and consequently can’t restore critical systems when a system fails or disaster strikes. We support a number of backup solutions for offsite storage including Veeam & Symantec Backup Exec, Windows native backup using LTO-6, LTO-7 and LTO-8 devices as well as hard drive, Hyper-V replication and cloud backup.
