Increased ransomware attacks and data breaches over the past few years have reinforced the importance of data security. Not only large businesses but also small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have become targets of these attacks. Businesses are increasingly reliant on data, which means there is a growing demand for security.
While it is impossible to predict in advance when data loss will occur, at least you can ensure that the business has the right solutions to recover important assets. IT managers need to ensure the implementation of backup and disaster recovery procedures in their companies.
In modern information systems, especially when it comes to enterprises’ IT infrastructures data backup systems are of crucial importance. Large enterprises, SMBs, and startups recognize the importance of creating backups. The procedure is especially in demand in banks and insurance companies, retail, IT, telecommunications, and medicine. For example, banks should keep data on transactions; medical organizations must have access to patient information, etc. Ensuring proper data recovery is one of the main requirements to support business continuity since the loss of corporate information can lead to serious downtime and losses. Without backup systems, business-critical information can be lost forever.
Customer requirements are constantly growing, as well as the market for backup systems is changing. While previously companies had to deploy their own infrastructure, today they can store backups on a remote site. The advantage of this approach is that there is no longer a need to maintain on-premise infrastructure.
The leader among backup systems with cloud backup capabilities is Veeam. The company is a pioneer in the market of the latest technologies in the field of data availability and currently offers various advantageous solutions for organizing data backup and recovery. The vendor offers a fast and reliable way to move backups to remote cloud sites, as well as data recovery. The solutions align very well with the "3-2-1" backup rule, which states that three conditions must be met to ensure reliable data storage:
keeping three backups;
using two types of media for storage;
storing one copy remotely.
