Backup and Disaster Recovery
What Is Backup and Disaster Recovery?
Backup and disaster recovery are two separate, but connected, concepts that organizations should always consider together. Backing up data is storing a copy of a business’s data in a cloud or physical environment, such as an external hard drive.
Backups are performed to protect the company in the event of accidental deletion, corruption, or any other issue with the original data or software.

Why Do I Need Backup
and Disaster Recovery Services?
Ransomware is a severe threat that businesses must be on guard for. Backup and disaster recovery services are an essential part of overcoming an attack. In a recent report from Sophos, 75% of businesses were the victim of a ransomware attack in 2020.
As cybercriminals change tactics and target data backups as well, disaster recovery plans or services should include additional redundancies to secure the most critical business data.

Backup and Recovery
Workstation vs. Servers
For workstations: backup is typically performed regularly, such as daily or weekly, to ensure that essential data is protected in case of hardware failure, malware infection, or accidental deletion. In the event of a disaster, individual workstations can be restored from their backups.
For servers: backup and disaster recovery are more complex and critical processes, as they store data and resources used by multiple users. Backups are typically performed more frequently, such as hourly or daily, to ensure that the most up-to-date data is available for recovery. In the event of a disaster, a server can be restored from its backup.
