Is this YOUR Back-up & Disaster Recovery Plan?
BDR is an acronym (don’t we LOVE acronyms?) for Backup and Disaster Recovery. With all of the recent gains in Internet Speeds – Business Data Recovery has become an indispensible tool for businesses to preserve and protect their priceless business data.
In the not too distant past, Tapes were the backup and recovery tool of choice. They could store a LOT of data, they were relatively cheap, and a copy of the data could be kept off of the business premises. The down side was when they were needed for recovery, the #@%$ things usually had some kind of error that resulted in a success rate of less than 20% (no misprint). Inexpensive USB hard disks then came into preference. Again LOTS of data but they were usually kept on premises. If a fire/disaster struck or the office was broken into, the data gone with the drive– usually destroyed or in a readable form in the hands of who knows who.
Now with these high speed internet connections comes new Business Data Recovery options. BDR is now a plan, rather than a particular box or service. Unfortunately it can also be confusing with a number of choices that need to be made. The key factors in putting together a BDR plan are:
