Everybody loves technology for one sole reason, it makes our lives easier. Computers allow everything, photos, videos, music, documents to be at our fingertips. We can now compose documents, edit photos and videos and listen to music all on the one device. Computers have become an essential part of our daily lives. But technology, whether we want it to or not, does occasionally fail, often at the most inopportune times. It can happen to anyone, whether that be large corporations or you at home. It can take only a matter of seconds before disaster strikes and all your data is lost (Muchmore 2016).
Don’t stress, there is a way to prepare yourself for an issue such as this! Online backup services are one of the very best ways to protect yourself and/or your company against the loss of computer data. Here at DataUp our offsite backup solution “can streamline your disaster recovery process by performing a complete offsite backup of your data automatically” (DataUp 2016)
“At night, or alternatively when scheduled, the solution works by establishing a secure connection between the Data Centre and your server, then backing up your critical data. It is unique in that it compares the data being uploaded to that already backed up and only transfers the parts of the data that have changed, allowing the process to be completed faster.” (DataUp 2016)
“Data Centres can be configured to maintain a backup buffer, allowing you to access an earlier backup. Our solution also supports a range of applications and backup technologies.” (DataUP 2016)
Not only will this protect you against hard drive crashes or unintentional deletions, but offsite backup can protect you from traditional disasters, like fires, floods and earthquakes, which can completely destroy your critical computer data. Even if you diligently perform backups at regular intervals, these disasters can still result in data loss if you didn’t store the backups off-site (Muchmore 2016).
Furthermore, offsite backups, which are either stored on the Cloud or online facilities, ensure that your data stays secure from malicious attacks. So if you should ever need to access it, it will be in the same condition that you left it (from when it was last backed up) (Techopedia 2016).
