Some database backup solutions are better than others

by | Apr 19, 2016 | Business Continuity

There are options for database backup solutions.

A significant challenge companies face is how to store, process and back up ever-increasing quantities of complex data. The sources vary: files and databases, the products of numerous software programs operating across a range of devices. Companies need reliable, thorough and secure database backup solutions for handling their data.

Recently, Information Management published an article discussing some of the effects of inadequate database backup solutions. Along with failing to provide sufficient protection when an IT disaster strikes, poor backup solutions keep companies from updating their data infrastructure and expanding on their capacity to handle new types or larger volumes of data. When it comes to database backups, companies are often worried that when they adopt new storage solutions, they won’t be able to find reliable ways to protect their data against loss and restore it easily when needed.

Serious IT problems are a constant threat to companies. These problems include malware, equipment failure, equipment theft, employee errors, power outages, and damage sustained from fires, floods, tornadoes and other physical disasters. Without powerful, updated backup solutions, companies may experience permanent data loss or find themselves struggling to restore data and resume operations, resulting in significant costs.

One solution that can work well for your company involves hybrid cloud technology, particularly from a high-quality provider such as Datto. Datto’s cutting-edge technology responds to the fact that data storage and backup solutions need to evolve together, so that companies can adopt new ways of storing data without worrying about how they’ll easily perform backups.

Hybrid cloud technology relies on local storage solutions combined with storage in the cloud. The information in a critical database, for example, won’t rest entirely in one server, making it vulnerable to loss. Datto ensures that your data recovery will proceed smoothly and quickly, with copies of your data readily available. Furthermore, you’ll know that your database backup complies with high standards for security and ease of restoration.
