Intelligent solutions for data backups
Creating backups of important data is more important then ever. If a laptop get lost, a hard-drive stops to work, a company is affected by an hacker-attack or someone delete inadvertently the wrong files from his machine – suddenly this questions comes up: When we made our last data-backup?!
External storage for important data
There can be many reasons for data-loss, which a responsible it-administrator should obviate. But basically in every company should be the right infrastructure installed, that provides an easy way for creating backups and re-input them into the system, if a problem occurs. One interesting solution can be a remote-backup, which provides the benefit, that all the data is stored somewhere outside the own building, so even in a case of a fire or flood the important files will not be affected.
A specific kind of external backups are cloud solutions. In our days especially these solutions are in focus of many it-admins and CTO's, who are looking for a future-proof backup system in their company. Cloud solutions are ideal for creating backups and store them in a very secure way. Good service providers of cloud solutions offer a data storage which is distributed on different machines / servers, which are connected to the internet, so the important files are not stored on one specific locations ore on one specific machine. At once a serious service provider offers high security levels and restrictive data protection to suspend access from not authorized persons.
Conclusion: In many cases cloud solutions are the most cost-efficient, secure and fast solutions, which are available for responsible persons, which have to take care of data-backups.
