It’s Important for a Backup to Work with Your Recovery Plan

by | Jul 24, 2013 | Business Continuity

What’s your recovery plan?

Because companies now understand the risk of losing data and how the aftermath can be detrimental, many are now turning to cloud storage because of its thoroughness and the peace of mind that comes along with it. But the reality is that simply employing a cloud storage service is not enough for a company’s recovery plan. Though such services will provide useful assistance and guide the company through the process, the company must first ultimately decide what their data backup plan is. There are multiple types of storage plans for data backup, so with a little research and planning, companies will be able to find the data storage that is right for them according to their recovery plan.

The best thing a small business can do is research data backup before making any decisions, but because the risk of losing data is real, this process should not take an extended period of time. A recent Cloud Tweaks article explains why businesses first need to get serious with their recovery plan for the best possible data backup:

“The bottom line is that small businesses everywhere need to start by looking at the bigger picture. This means it’s time to get serious about your data management strategy. This also entails mapping out your current , and often means being real about what’s not working in your current data strategy. From there you’ll be better poised to start considering what the best storage option for you.”

Understanding the risk of data loss is usually the first step to a better data backup plan, but companies cannot stop there; they then need to determine what they need and develop a recovery plan. Data protection services can then take it from there, and help guide the company to a plan that is best for them.
