Backing up your IT System is probably something you’ve always planned on doing but have never actually gotten round to doing it.

Why Backup?

Imagine one day your company is working on a large project – it’s a huge contract for a lot of money. You and your staff are happily working away looking forward to completing the project and reaping the reward when suddenly, “Connection to the network has been lost.” appears on your computer screen.

You shrug it off and reboot your computer in the hopes you can continue where you left off. 10 minutes later when you’re still unable to work an employee comes to your office – “uhh, boss? I think the servers blown up.” Sure enough, upon investigation it turns out the server has died and all data has been lost. This scenario could mean the end of your business.

Fortunately, if you’d had a nightly backup handy you would have been able to restore back to last night – you may have lost a few hours work, but at least once a new server is in place and the backup restored you will be able to continue from that backup.

So a word of advice, always keep a backup!
