Choosing the Right Backup Recovery Solution

Small and medium businesses (SMBs) need to keep their businesses up and running just as much as larger companies. Yet they are challenged by several limitations when seeking out a solution that meets their mission-critical data recovery, application uptime, and data retention needs.

These include:

• Limited funds

• Limited IT resources

• Limited/inadequate solution options designed for SMBs

Why Backup?

Think about the number of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, and database documents you have created, edited and saved today. Now multiply that by a week, a month, a year. Then add in all of your colleagues’ changes to this type of data. That is how much information is floating around in most company computers. Without an adequate data recovery system in place, a disaster could delete essential company and client documents that can never be replaced.

While digital data storage remains the most efficient and most used way to store data, like anything, it comes with a downside.
