Our Managed Backup includes automated and scheduled backup tests to verify the integrity of your data. Many teams underestimate the importance of testing restores which may lead to unsuccessful recovery at critical junctures. With Spectrum IT Consultancy as your Managed Backup provider, all risks of restore failures are mitigated.
Backups have always been important to ensure data is not lost. Backups can be taken directly on end user devices, SaaS services, or on premises or cloud servers.
Backing up end user devices is something the majority of businesses should now avoid doing. Data should be stored centrally rather than on endpoints to minimise risk. If an end user device is lost or stolen, any data on that device must be considered lost. The exception to this is where an end user is unable to access the internet for long periods of time however in 2021 this has become increasingly rare.
SaaS backup for products such as Office 365 and Google Workspace are becoming more and more common. While many believe that since their data is in the cloud it doesn’t need to be backed up, although Office 365 and Google Workspace do offer some level of retention, it may not meet the minimum requirements that some organisations have. At the end of the day, backups offer peace of mind. It is possible you may never need them and knowing you have them allows you focus on more important things.
On-prem server backups are an absolute must. The single point of failure that on-prem servers bring is something that would keep any IT administrator up at night. On-prem servers, physical or virtual, run on physical hardware on the
business premises. These are not only at risk of cyber attacks and remote
threats but also physical damage, overheating, etc.
