on-site & off-site backups
Do you feel confident that your data backups are functioning properly for a restore?
Think of all the hours of work you and your staff produced today. Lets say you are a CPA and prepared multiple tax returns or how about an attorney that prepared many legal documents. The next day all of your data gets wiped away because a careless staff member clicked on a malicious email link or the server crashes. Can you recover and keep from going out of business?
Do you feel confident that your data backups are offsite and protected from theft or natural disaster?
Think of all the backup preparations that were made and a natural disaster occurs. Can you restore your data from the cloud onto new equipment?
Do you know your answer to this formula?
(Number of Staff * General Hourly Pay Rate) * Number of Lost Work Hours
When systems go do or viruses attack, your staff sits and waits for IT to come to the rescue. The answer to the formula is the amount of revenue lost on payroll alone. Add in lost services or projects and your loss revenue total skyrockets. Don’t get caught in this misery, give us a call today for a backup plan assessment.
What's the difference between onsite and offsite backups?
Onsite backup refers to storing data on a local storage device, such as hard disk, CDs, magnetic tapes, and hard drives. Offsite backup, on the other hand, calls for storing data on an offsite server which can be accessed via the internet. Both online and offsite backup has its own advantages and disadvantages therefore both are necessary. There are advantages and disadvantages to both backup types. Speak with a Go Kall IT representative today about your storage needs. We can provide you a quality assessment and game plan solution to get you “backed up.”
Backing up to onsite storage gives the advantage of realistic turn around times for data retrieval. When a server crashes or workstation gets corrupted, having the images onsite enables the end-user to be back up and running in a relatively short period amount of time. The data is local so it does not have far to go for restoration. Go Kall IT works with only highly rated backup software vendors that can produce quality encrypted backup files for data storage needs.
As part of the backup plan, Offsite backups offer a safe secondary storage outside the main office and for data retrieval from locations anywhere around the world. The advantages to having these backups are in the event of device theft, fire, flood or other disasters that can cause data loss. Go Kall IT has partnered with highly rated, HIPAA compliant, cloud data storage providers to provide you with storage for your data.
Data should be encrypted when backing up to external devices whether it be local or in the cloud. In the case of theft, thieves will not be able to read your private information. Regulatory compliance agencies such as HIPAA and GDPR require such protection of all data in order to meet regulatory standards.
