Is your company data safe? In a safe place? And if something happens, is the restoration plan effective?
Human errors, viruses, computer attacks, file system failures and many more threats are constantly haunting us.
Although prevention is very important, sometimes there are problems that are impossible to foresee or that their prevention has not been enough.
Taking into account the huge amount of data that companies generate every day and the computer threats that exist, having a backup plan is completely necessary and mandatory.
Safe sites to store backups
External hard drives are probably the most frequently used means for backing up. This physical medium may be sufficient in domestic environments, but it is not the most advisable for the business world.
Backup copies must be in a secure environment, preferably encrypted, external to our systems and that meets a minimum of availability. Suppose you need to restore a copy and the backup system is not available, we have a problem!
All those devices that we have always used to make backups, such as external hard drives, USB sticks, tapes ... etc. These devices are sufficient for backing up vacation photos, but not for our company. For example, if a USB containing a copy is lost, our data is in danger of being used by a third person.
The security of backups (redundancy is worth it) is also important: external place, safe, fast, stable and encrypted.
Networked devices are widely used in traditional small and medium SMEs.
A NAS server or a SAN server are network devices, generally small in size, that are placed in the office itself and the company's servers and computers are connected to it via ethernet cable.
Both traditional devices and network devices have some problems:
They can be damaged, losing all data.
They can be stolen or physically destroyed.
They are not entirely safe and are often not very accessible.
What if we suffer a fire? An earthquake? A theft? We lose everything!
An alternative method to the previous two and that solves all your problems, are backup copies in Cloud systems in DUALRED.
Cloud and hybrid cloud
Surely you have heard of the cloud or cloud computing at some point. It is a very powerful, fast, secure and extremely stable network of servers (100% high availability environment in many cases), since all data is stored throughout the network.
At Computer History Club we are experts in cloud backup solutions, this is our thing! We explain why it is the best solution:
Backups will always be available. Cloud systems enjoy an enviable stability that only these systems achieve, since if one point of the network stops working, the rest continue working. Always available!
The cloud is fast, secure and very efficient, in addition, it reduces the economic cost. The backups will be made quickly, they will be encrypted and they will be saved in an online environment external to your servers.
The cloud bandwidth allows you to get the most out of your fiber optic line, allowing you to upload backups very quickly or restore them in a matter of minutes or seconds.
There are two types of cloud where you can save your backups. The cloud or hybrid cloud, very simple: in the cloud, everything is online. In the hybrid cloud, the power of the online cloud is combined with local physical devices, such as NAS or SAN servers in your company.
It combines the best of both worlds, thus, if a system is not available for whatever reason (cut in the data line, inability to access the cloud, but yes to the physical servers of the company) everything will continue to work. Then we can differentiate public cloud from private cloud, but we don't want to pester you with technicalities the first time!
If the power of the cloud and hybrid cloud seems interesting (we assure you it is), you can contact Computer History Club to inform you directly.
What is the advantage of the hybrid cloud?
· It combines the best of both worlds, thus, if a system is not available for any reason (cut in the data line, inability to access the cloud, but the physical servers of the company) everything will continue to work. Then we can differentiate public cloud from private cloud, but we don't want to pester you with technicalities the first time!
