Scheduled network server and data backup solutions
minimize potential data loss.
Server and workstation backup solutions ensure that your backup hardware can completely restore your critical data.
What were your key considerations when you developed your backup and restoration policy? Implementing the correct data backup solution requires a well-defined process as well as selecting the proper equipment. The critical data required for back up must be identified before considering the appropriate capacity and speed for the backup unit. The correct agents and rights must be implemented for your system to gather the data from other servers. Significant testing, including a full restore of systems must be performed on a scheduled basis in order to verify the backup process.
The means by which your company stores and archives backups, is as important as the devices and software by which it backs up data. Should an event occur which precludes you from gaining access to your servers; your backup tapes should be available off site. A method for obtaining the media and restoring them to an alternate site must be incorporated and fully documented.
In the event the team member originally in charge of the tapes is unavailable for their retrieval, designating alternate staff members with authority to access to those tapes is critical. The process by which your company cycles tapes is also crucial. Tapes wear out and eventually fail. Your business must conduct regular tests to verify that critical data can be retrieved and restored. Frequently core data changes location and/or name; this requires regular updates of the backup definition to ensure accuracy.
