Why Offsite Backups are Needed

A couple of weeks ago, I had a client who leases office space on the 5th floor of an 8 story building. I got a panicked call on a Monday that there was a fire on the 8th floor and that water may have seeped down to lower floors. We braced for the potential of having water soaked servers and prepped a team to go onsite. Thankfully, they suffered no water damage, but was a wake up call for them that even tough they had onsite backups, they needed to make sure their offsite system of file storage was safe.

At your company, do you backup your data? Most of you do. However, have you thought about what might happen if your office, your building or your server room goes the way of Mother Nature, act of God, or malicious person? How do you recover from your backup if your backup is ALSO destroyed? At Renascence IT, we have multiple options for rotational backups or cloud based storage that are even secure by  HIPAA, SSAE 16, and SSAE 70 standards. You put on a seat belt and have an air bag in the event of an accident, shouldn't you do the same for your company? Contact us for a free evaluation or quote.
