Why Do I Need Data Backup?

Any size company, or any person for that matter, can lose their data.  If you don’t yet have a solid plan to keep your data safe, there are three things you should consider:

  1. All humans make errors, yes even you.
  2. All computer system hardware will eventually fail.
  3. Disasters happen and they are never planned.

In the event of any of the above situations, you need to have your data backed-up already running and accessible for recovery.

Why is Data Backup and Recovery so Important?

Data loss happens all the time.  You may have been able to avoid the inevitable but the longer you use your computer the more likely that Murphy’s law will step in.

The most common causes of loss of data are human error, employee or competitor theft, or physical failure to computers. Floods, fires, and spilled drinks are just as likely to cause the problem.

A lot of these are risks that a local drive won’t solve. Even they can be lost, stolen, damaged, or fail.

Let’s not forget that expensive ransomware hacks that are now common. So all it takes is any missed step and your data may be gone or cost you an absolute fortune to recover.
