The backup of a company, due to its complexity and large amount of data, needs to be performed automatically through a specific tool. It is important to hire a robust and practical solution for this service.
It should be efficient, allow you to target the storage destination, and have multiple resources to suit your business. Therefore, the next step is to define the storage location.
“The focus of the backup is to have the possibility of restoring the data in case a problem happens, isn't it? Therefore, it should preferably be done in an external unit outside the company's property.
We have different alternatives on the market today, the main ones are:
External HD: as they are portable and small equipment, they are the option of many companies, after all, their transport is very practical. However, they are more fragile and are susceptible to damage, loss and theft.
Magnetic tapes: many companies still use this option due to its low cost per space. However, data transfer speed is low and access to records is done sequentially, preventing restoration of only part of a backup.
Local servers: automated backup on local servers is one of the main types used. It offers more security and privacy compared to the previous two, in addition to allowing scalability. However, it also has points of attention, it has higher costs, requires implementation and maintenance, in addition to being susceptible to natural disasters, human errors, thefts and failures.
Cloud Backup: this option is the one that our company recommends to our customers, because it offers an excellent cost, has scalability and does not require the company to worry about maintenance and setbacks on site that may damage the backup. After all, they will be stored on the service provider's servers, which already have a location fully prepared for this.
