Well it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! That means the New Year is just around the corner. Besides the gifts, family and good times, it’s also a time to reflect on the past year and make plans for the next. So, how about it? How did your server backup plans for this year work out? Tell the truth, did you even have a server backup plan?
Hopefully you did. You probably didn’t back up every one of your servers, but if your organization is like most you may have
backed up most of what you deemed critical. But backing up desktops and non-critical servers was probably not part of your backup plan, if you had one. So how and where did you back them up? Did you backup off site? Did you use a cloud-based service, or just another server in an off site data center?
Regardless of how you answered the above questions, now is the time to review exactly what you did, and what you should do in the coming year. The good news is that there are lots of great choices in the backup market.
If you are like most organizations, you are probably seeing an explosion in the amount of data that you are generating. Your ability to store that data and make use of it could mean the difference between success and failure in the coming months and years. That includes backing up that data. On top of that, virtualization is probably increasing the amount of servers you are running. While they may be virtual, the data on those servers is no less important.
