CAUTION–The average failure rate for a tape backup is 100%
- Tape Backups will NOT offer you protection if:
- Your tape drive malfunctions rendering it useless and making it impossible to restore your data. IMPORTANT: It is very common for a tape drive to malfunction without giving any warning signs.
- Your office (and everything in it) gets destroyed by a fire, flood, hurricane, tornado, or other natural disaster.
- The physical tapes you are backing your data up to become corrupted due to heat or mishandling.
- A virus spoils the data stored on the tape drive. Some of the more aggressive viruses not only corrupt the data, but they don’t allow anyone to access the data on the drive.
- Someone in your office accidentally formats the tape, erasing everything on it.
- Theft – a disgruntled employee intentionally erases everything, or a thief breaks in and steals ALL of your equipment.
- A faulty sprinkler system “waters” all of your electronic equipment.
Remote Backups are Crucial to Every Business Today
The ONLY way to completely protect your data and guarantee that you could restore it all after a major disaster is by maintaining an up-to-date copy of your data offsite in a high-security facility.
Remote backups, also called offsite backups, online backups, or managed backups, is a service that allows you to maintain a secure copy of your data in a different location than your office.
This type of backup is usually done automatically via the Internet after- hours to a high-security facility. There is no question that every business owner should have an offsite copy of their data; however, there ARE big differences among remote backup services and it’s critical that you choose a good provider or you could end up paying a lot of money only to discover that recovering your data – the very reason why you set up remote backups in the first place – is not an easy, fast, or simple job.
According to the US Bureau of Labor, 93 percent of companies that suffer a significant data loss are out of business within five years.
