Continuing our articles on disaster recovery, data storage and managed Data Backup services, we are fully supportive of World Backup Day 2016.
Whether you are an individual or a business owner, you store far more information digitally than you realise. For some, that realisation only sinks in when that information is lost due to system failure. Out of curiosity, I googled prices for data recovery, carried out within 48 hours, for hard drive failure; what I found was verification for prevention all the way. For business owners who fail to maintain a regular back up plan, the loss of data could lead to a horrific problem and not only financially. Systems fail, hard drives fail and horror of horrors – servers stop working. You simply must not ignore Data Backup; it needs to be a task as natural as putting on your seatbelt.
At Nybble we provide full solutions for your IT requirements. We also provide Data Hosting Services. Using our data hosting exchange solution provides these key features and benefits:
We have some very large companies under our wing and we protect their data and have backup plans in place should something awful happen. All it takes is for one server to go down and a whole section of your business could be unable to function. We have one of the fastest response times in the industry, we don’t tell you it could take up to 4 hours to hear from us, we are accessible 24/7 and our clients appreciate our northern warmth and our plain speak – we don’t make promises we can’t keep. So if you want your IT services managed, made secure, backed up and robust, call us or email us and we will tailor to your requirement.
If you read statistics online and I urge you to read my post on disaster recovery about this topic: http://www.nybble.co.uk/2016/01/disaster-recovery-a-necessity-in-the-digital-age/ it’s a well quoted statistic that a business hit by floods or disaster is allegedly likely to close within 6 months; one of our clients WAS hit by floods and despite doing everything possible to protect against this issue, found his server underwater. Nybble technicians had a new server cabinet installed and 98% of data recovered within 2 hours, everything recovered essential to his business. Call us we can help you.
When was the last time you backed up your information? How would you feel if you lost that fantastic accrued library of mp3’s, that special photo of a loved one you never got around to printing, all your tax records or the software programs you have long ago lost the discs and licenses for? As a business user, do you have a backup of your client list? Is your sensitive information safe and have you got a plan in place should the worst happen, ideally involving backup copies of everything, stored away from your business location?
With reports of another nasty ransomware (malicious code that freezes everything and demands a ransom to unlock) doing the rounds and affecting some major companies worldwide, backup should not be a consideration – it should be a necessity. We will tailor a solution to what you need and what you can afford, call us now and see how we can help.
