Why you need backups as a key part of your continuity planning

01/25/2013 | Data centers |

If you're looking to build your own dedicated server to create a data center for your company, one feature that's likely to be hugely important is automated backup capabilities. With the amount of data growing all the time, many firms are coming to rely more heavily than ever on the information they generate. One consequence of this is that if you find yourself unable to access this for any reason -  such as unplanned downtime -  or you experience a major data loss incident, you could find yourself unable to do business.

More data than ever
Therefore, it's vital that you put in place a disaster recovery and business continuity plan so you're able to pick up and carry on trading. Backing up your vital data will play a key part in this, particularly as there's more crucial information than ever stored in data centers.

Specialist IT publication Biztech highlighted figures from International Data Corporation that shows just how much data volumes are set to grow in the coming years.

Last year alone, 1.8 zettabytes - or 1.8 trillion gigabytes - were created, but this will be tiny compared with where the industry is going. By 2020, it was estimated that data volumes will have increased 50-fold from today.

Find the right solutions
It's clearly important you have the right solutions available to you to keep your data centers secure. This is where hosted services can be highly valuable, as it protects your information off-site and allows you to keep operating, even if your office experiences a natural disaster such as flooding or fire that destroys on-site servers.

Cloud computing solutions are also a great value option, as they can be much cheaper than creating an on-site data center backup solution due to the fact there are no capital investment costs.

With data outages having the potential to threaten the very existence of some firms, doing all you can to mitigate your risks is essential in today's environment, so you need to look at your options carefully in order to find the best solution for your needs.
