Backup servers are secondary on-premises or remote servers used for app, data, files and database backup facilitation. They make retrieval of backed-up information possible both locally and remotely.
Implementing server backups as a part of your backup strategic plan in case of data disaster prevents the possibility of losing sensitive company data and personal information. Scheduled backups ensure that you get the most updated version of your files and media.
Server backup solutions
You have a few different server backup solutions you can choose from to ensure business continuity in case of a data disaster. One of them is using a colocation facility.
A colocation facility is a data centre that provides infrastructure, equipment, hardware, bandwidth and security that you can rent and run your backup server. This solution involves investing in backup software such as Veeam, Acronis, CrashPlan or similar.
Another server backup solution is a virtual machine (VM) in a public cloud. A VM is a software-based computer that’s most frequently used for backing up data and running SaaS applications.
Public cloud backups can be done through public cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud host the remote server and backup infrastructure. Virtual machines are a scalable solution for small businesses and allow them to access their data from anywhere.
Managing Backup-as-a-Service (Baas) can be done by managed service providers (MSPs) and is a solution that many prefer. MSPs provide professional services that can take the load off your IT department and tailor your backup solution to ensure business continuity in case of a data disaster.
Data disasters take many forms
Implementing a backup solution and disaster recovery plan in your business goals is essential if you aim for your work to stay secure and continuous. Data disaster refers to a case in which data is corrupted, deleted, lost or stolen due to unexpected events.
Unfortunately, such events can occur both onsite and offsite, including natural disasters such as :
- earthquakes and fires
- industrial accidents
- equipment failure
- power outages
- ransomware attacks
- human error
- employee sabotage and many more
