Data Backups




Backups have two distinct purposes.
The primary purpose is to recover data as a reaction to data loss. 67% of internet users have suffered serious data loss.

The secondary purpose of backups is to recover data from a historical period of time. Within the constraints of a user-defined data retention policy, typically configured within a backup application. Though backups represent a simple form of disaster recovery, and should be part of a disaster recovery plan, by themselves, backups should not alone be considered disaster recovery.

Not all backup systems and/or backup applications are able to reconstruct a computer system, computer cluster, active directory servers, or database servers simply by restoring only data from a backup.

Since a backup system contains at least one copy of all data worth saving, the data storage requirements are considerable. Organizing this storage space and managing the backup process is a complicated undertaking. A data repository model should be used to provide structure to the storage. In the modern era of computing there are many different types of data storage devices. Also, there are many ways in which these devices can be arranged to provide geographic redundancy, data security, and portability.

Before data is sent to its storage location, it is selected, extracted, and manipulated. Many different techniques have been developed to optimize the backup procedure. These include optimizations for dealing with open files and live data sources as well as compression, encryption, and de-duplication. Many organizations and individuals try to have confidence that the process is working as expected and work to define measurements and validation techniques. It is also important to recognize the limitations and human factors involved in any backup scheme.

Action Computers can fulfill your back up needs. Give us a call to find out more.
