Expert Technical Dependability
At Advanced IT Solutions, we’ve seen it all. From chiropractic offices and hair salons that lost their entire client database following a system crash, to couples heartbroken after losing invaluable wedding and baby photos. The common denominator in all of these scenarios was miscalculating the critical nature of having a secondary backup system, such as an external hard drive device, to create redundant copies of critical data to guard against data corruption and loss.
Do you back up your data to a secondary storage medium or the virtual Cloud? Whether you’re running a small to medium-sized business, medical practice or you’re a student working on your college dissertation, backing up your critical data is sometimes the only thing standing between you and absolute disaster. And while storing information on the Cloud may be all the rage these days, if you back up your data virtually, your business likely archives some, or all, of its data on servers maintained in an extremely nebulous environment, with no concrete sense of where it is, or who has access to it.
While having redundant copies of data is always advantageous, we highly recommend storing particularly sensitive information on your own physical server platform at your business facility. The consequence of not having an adequate backup method could be catastrophic for businesses that rely on their technology platform for daily operations. We’ve seen the detrimental results that ensue when people make this miscalculation. By being proactive, you can circumvent such a costly oversight. Data backup ensures maximum security and the ability to restore critical data.
Twenty-twenty hindsight, after you’ve lost your critical data, does nothing to restore the content of your hard drive or missing database. If you’ve made this critical miscalculation, don’t despair! The experts at Advanced IT Solutions can oftentimes recover the important documents, photos and client records that you thought were lost forever.
