Down time is the immediate after effect of disasters which can even result in catastrophic data losses. With so much riding on your business, it makes sense to have a tried and tested method for BCP & DR which can recover your data without much manual intervention. Restore time is equal to the down time and hence care should be taken on the time frame in which you can retrieve the backup data. Setting up proper backups for the server is the very basic step we need to take towards disaster recovery plan.
Our support technicians follow the best practices for backup configuration
Plan : Plan backups for every aspect of the server, be it databases, mails, web content or application data. Data retention : Retention policies should be planned so that only relevant copies of the backups are kept. Backup location : An onsite solution will not help in case of major disaster which destroys all data. Dry runs: Plan dry runs for the backups to test the validity of the backup data. This will make sure the backed up data is valid and the backup media can be read.
