Why Your Business Needs a Business Backup Solution

In today's digital age, businesses of all sizes are at risk of data loss. A single data breach can cost a business thousands or even millions of dollars in lost revenue, productivity, and reputation. That's why it's essential for businesses to have a reliable backup solution in place.

A business backup solution is a system that creates copies of your important business data and stores it in a safe location. This way, if your primary data is lost or corrupted, you can restore it from your backup. A proper backup system is the best (and often only) way to recover from a Ransomware attack.

Here are a few of the most popular types of business backup solutions that we offer:
  • Local BackupThis is the simplest type of backup solution. We simply copy your data to a local storage device, such as a network attached storage (NAS) device. The danger is that this does not provide an offsite backup, to cover the Fire, Flood, Natural Disaster aspect. (see hybrid below)
  • Cloud backup: This is a more secure type of backup solution. Your data is stored securely on remote backup servers, which are protected by multiple layers of security.
  • Hybrid backup: This is a combination of both local and cloud backup. Local data for fast recovery and cloud data for the offsite aspect that is required in a proper business backup system. (Also by your Cyber Insurance provider)
  • A cloud standby backup server: This is a virtual server that is hosted in the cloud and can be used to replace an on-premise server in the event of a failure. The server is maintained in a "hot" state, which means that it is always running and up-to-date with the latest data. This makes it ideal for businesses that cannot afford any downtime in the event of a disaster.
  • Backup of your cloud data: Many businesses today use cloud apps and store their data in the cloud. We offer a backup service that stores your Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace data in our cloud. This provides an extra layer of security and peace of mind, as you don't have to rely on the original provider's support system and limited retention. Additionally, our service offers extended retention up to 7 years, so you can rest assured that your data is safe and accessible for as long as you need it.

At CT Business Solutions we have seen many preventable data losses over the past 25+ years. The more tragic losses are where there has been no recent backup to recover from.

There are also many success stories. In the recent cyclone gabrielle for example we were able to get a business back up and running the next day after their offices were submerged and red stickered. They were on our hybrid system, and their NAS (on a many times a day replication to the cloud) had backed up to the cloud storage just minutes before the flood struck. We simply made their most recent backup available on one of our servers and enabled access for their workers who were now working from home.

Every business has different requirements for its backup needs. As a general rule, your requirements for speed of recovery, the volume of your business data, and the retention period required determines the cost of providing the backup and disaster recovery solution that we will tailor for your business needs.

Talk to us to make sure your business thrives no matter what comes your way. Let us protect your company against the disasters that can literally put you out of business. For total "peace of mind", your business must have a proper business grade monitored data backup plan that both incorporates secure offsite backup storage, and a properly documented recovery plan.
