Backup and Recovery For Small Business doesn’t need to be hard.

Far too often busy business owners have good intentions — to backup the data which is the lifeblood of their business.  They understand how important  backing up their business data is to their long term success, yet it’s astonishing many fail to do so.  In my conversations with many small business owners, I’ve heard a few common threads.  One is they don’t have the technical skills, not sure which backup solution to deploy, they believe data loss will never happen to them, but by far the most common is they tried backup systems that are too cumbersome and not easy to understand.

At Invenio IT, we believe one of the most basic requirements of a backup and recovery solution is that it needs to be simple, and easy for our customers to understand.  This relates to the setup process, the backup and also the recovery process.  Over our 11 year history we’ve used almost every backup system on the market.  We’ve been deploying Datto SIRIS backup solutions for two years now, largely because how simple and reliable it is. The simplicity of the system has enabled us to ensure that we take all necessary steps to ensure that our clients data is recoverable 100% of the time.  That is the most important function of a backup system, and should be one of the most important deciding factors when selecting a backup and recovery solution.

Setting up the Datto SIRIS agents on the servers is very simple.  First, it’s required to ensure that the disk drives are prepped properly, and then the installing the backup agent (from a web browser).  Once that is done it’s as simple as setting up the local backup schedule (how many backups per day, week), the off-site backup interval (how many backups to send off-site), and which volumes on the server to backup.  There are some topics which involve verifying each backup and simplified system recovery which we will explain in further in later articles.

Seeing is believing. Here is a screenshot showing how simple it is to setup a Datto SIRIS backup schedule.
