Comparing disaster recovery solutions is an essential first step to deploying a data backup system. Since many BC/DR products can appear the same on paper, it’s important to dig into the details to see where they diverge.
One of the greatest challenges for growing businesses today is reducing the complexity and cost of sprawling IT infrastructures. By consolidating several IT components into a single integrated system—a concept known as converged infrastructure—businesses can achieve greater simplicity, flexibility and scalability.
Deploying a corporate data backup system is a must for businesses of all sizes. But with so many types of backup technologies to choose from these days, it can be difficult to know where to start.
At last month’s DattoCon19, Datto unveiled its smallest BC/DR devices ever: the SIRIS 4 X1 and X2 (or S4X1 & S4X2, for short).
Datto’s SIRIS Private makes it easier than ever for businesses to deploy their own private cloud. Announced at DattoCon19, SIRIS Private is an ideal BC/DR solution for businesses that are restricted from storing data in third-party public clouds. It provides the same enterprise-grade data protection that SIRIS is known for, while keeping backups contained within your company’s private network.
One of the biggest announcements at DattoCon19 was the release of the SIRIS 4. The newest version of Datto’s flagship BC/DR device will offer more power to make backups even better. From faster virtualization to better backup verification, there’s plenty to be excited about. Here’s what we know so far and what it means for your business continuity objectives.
DattoCon19 just wrapped up in San Diego a couple weeks ago, and there’s plenty to talk about. From the SIRIS 4 to the new “Cloud Continuity for PCs,” Datto announced more than 20 significant updates that every business should be excited about.
A destructive ransomware attack on the City of Baltimore is the latest in a series of targeted attacks at government offices recently. From Atlanta to Albany, these attacks have crippled public services—sometimes for weeks at a time—underscoring the dire need for maintaining business continuity in government.
It’s been more than a month since a nasty ransomware infection hobbled the City of Baltimore, disrupting almost every aspect of the city’s operations, including police communications, court systems and the local property market.
How often should you back up data for your business? This is just one of many important questions that organizations must consider when creating a small business backup strategy. And since each business is unique, every organization will have their own specific recovery needs and objectives.
There are lots of terms to describe the various ways businesses prepare for disaster: disaster recovery, business continuity, emergency response, disaster management and numerous others. Learn more here.
Earlier this month researchers discovered two very dangerous, completely unconnected cybersecurity flaws that put millions of computers at risk. And while some patches are already available, analysts say it’s only a matter of time before these vulnerabilities are exploited – possibly on a massive scale (think WannaCry or NotPetya).
A massive Salesforce outage on Friday left thousands of customers unable to access the service for several days.
The incident appeared to be one of the worst Salesforce downtime events in the company’s history, with as many as 3,200 users temporarily losing access to their SaaS data around the world.
When you’re comparing disaster recovery solutions, it’s important to choose the right fit for your organization. There are plenty of excellent data-backup systems out there, but not all of them will be perfectly matched for the needs of your business.
When there’s a break in business continuity in the financial services industry, it doesn’t just disrupt a single business – it can disrupt entire markets.
Every business faces a major data-loss situation at some point. It’s not a question of “if,” but “when.” And when it happens, businesses without a corporate data backup solution face grim prospects for recovery.
Small business backup software is a fundamental piece of any business continuity solution. It’s the brains behind your backups, controlling every aspect of how your data is protected.
Choosing a disaster recovery solution is a big decision. And with so many types of data backup to choose from, comparing them can be overwhelming.
No business is immune to disaster. But with a comprehensive disaster management plan, any business can reduce the risk of an emergency situation and recover quickly when disruptions occur.
What’s the state of ransomware in 2019 so far? Not great, apparently.
Despite signs that some cybercriminal groups are moving away from ransomware to other illegal enterprises, like cryptojacking, a near constant stream of attacks have continued to roil businesses this year.
Maintaining continuity is vital for every business, but perhaps no other industry faces the same level of urgency as healthcare.
What exactly is corporate data backup? Well, it has come a long way over the last two decades. New technologies, combined with the increased power of cloud computing, have dramatically improved all aspects of the backup process.
A sudden loss of data can derail the operations of any business. But the impact can be especially devastating for smaller companies and startups, which often can’t recover from the high costs of extended downtime.
Fire, flooding, ransomware – disasters can strike at any moment, in many different forms. When companies aren’t prepared, their operations come to a screeching halt—and in many cases, they never recover. By implementing a comprehensive disaster management plan, your organization can help reduce the risk of disasters and recover quickly when they do occur.
Preparing for disaster is one of the best things a business can do to avoid downtime when disruptive events occur. But for smaller companies, it’s not always clear how to approach that planning.
We’ve created this business continuity plan template to guide you in creating the single most important resource in your disaster-planning toolbox: the business continuity plan (BCP).
In today’s business world, data is everything. From critical application data to sensitive customer files, companies today are literally powered by their data. Without an adequate corporate data backup system in place, a business stands to lose everything.
People often use the terms disaster recovery and business continuity planning interchangeably, but while these two terms are similar, they describe two different approaches businesses take to bounce back in the event of a disaster.
In this post, we look at the most common causes of data loss in Salesforce (it happens way more often than you might think) to underscore why an independent Salesforce backup solution is so critical.
A massive Office 365 outage last week left users without access to email and other services for several days. The event affected users across the globe.
As with any software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, there are inherent risks to using Office 365. But with the right SaaS backup solution in place, you can ensure your cloud data is always protected.
