The Cloud computing and Virtualization have made this important process (copying) a little simpler. But there is always a need to check in system. Cloud computing reduces threats to hardware. However, according to research, the same is not true with software.
A huge number of businesses of all sizes have experienced it data loss. The most worrying, though, is that the higher the percentage it has never been able to recover its data and restore its systems. Even if the hardware is secure, data loss can result from other issues, such as maliciously programs, viruses and bugs. For this reason it is necessary to create one server backup.
Microsoft provides users of the backup software. But is the backup software included with the Microsoft Windows Server product enough? It is about the needs of each user. However, there are several shortcomings in Windows backup software. Some of these are:
Storage problems: The backups are stored on a fixed local disk. Therefore, removable storage media such as hard drives etc are not allowed. If the system fails, the data will no longer be available.
Network Share: It is possible to send backups to a network share, but Windows software only maintains a recent backup and deletes the previous ones. This is an important problem, because businesses previous copies may be needed.
Encryption: Windows Backup Server software does not use any encryption techniques. You will need to use another application to encrypt them data you individually.
Support: There is no support line, although help is always needed.
To use a Windows Server Backup Software, you need to discuss some things with the company:
Planning: It's the first and most important step. You need to create one Detailed shot and just follow it. The plan must include critical information, As the the type of data that will be backed up, the location where they will be stored, and more. Once you have made these important decisions, you should contact your software provider and discuss the right strategy for your company.
Strategy: The second step is backup strategy. It can be divided into two categories: on-premises strategy and Remote backup. The first category is usually used in small companies and the second in large companies. In the On-premises backup, you must copy important data and an extra storage space, manually. The data is accessible whenever you need it, but the information is vulnerable. On the other hand, the Remote backup is faster, secure and automated. The server automatically sends the data to a remote center. All you have to do is install it software.
Inclusion: The software will definitely back up your important data. But what about the rest? The corporate data that exists on mobile phones, personal computers etc should also be included in the backups. The decision on what kind of data to include in the backups is very important.
Critical data: Important databases, daily reports, financials data and other data must also be available on copies.
Protection: One of the most important elements is and protecting the backup application from potential threats. For example, the application should protect the data from ransomware attacks both online and offline.
Access and testing: Also important is the issue of access to backups. For example, some things that need to be discussed are who will have them access backups or what happens if the Internet does not work and you do not have access to the backups? The last step is testing. The test will reveal whether the backup software is ultimately successful.
