Offsite Data Storage for Disaster Recovery
Secure offsite storage is the number-one thing you need to consider if your data is integral to the successful operation of your business. Living in Australia, we know that natural disasters and other weather events can happen without warning. We saw catastrophic floods in Brisbane in 2011, and major storms and outages took place in 2017. With serious weather events and other calamities threatening your business, can you afford to not have a business continuity plan in place?
For some businesses, having their power down or data offline for even an hour can have an enormous impact on their bottom line. When you’re putting business data storage in place, you are planning and taking steps to protect your business both now and in the future.
Mesa IT provides reliable data storage business solutions that will ensure your important information is always secure, no matter what happens.
A Data Recovery Plan that Works
Your data is vital for your company, and you need to make sure that you’re protecting your information wherever possible. Confidential information like customer records, as well as vital business information, all needs to be secure and stored properly.
If you lose access to this information – even for a moment – this can put you at risk of not complying with state and/or federal regulations. Offsite server data storage is the logical way to mitigate the potential loss of access to data.
How to Implement Offsite Data Storage Services
You will need to take a few key steps before you get started with offsite data storage services.
Choose the type of offsite data storage you’re after
Many IT managers take a rounded approach to their data management, implementing a range of technologies (like offsite tape storage and cloud storage) to ensure that there is a layered strategy in place. The reason for this? Flexibility and efficiency. We will help you select the right storage for your needs.
Make sure you think about what your assets are, where you store them and how you need to back them up. A great place to start in prioritising is to make an inventory of your information and look at what you need to access in order of importance.
Manage your data
If your office is flooded or your company is destroyed for any reason, how do you make sure your data is safe? By having backup copies of everything important at a secure data centre. This ensures that your vital data is untouchable, no matter what happens to your brick-and-mortar business.
Have a set of instructions to follow
In the event of a failure, you need to have clear and simple instructions to follow to make accessing your data easy. If email goes down as well, you might need to consider setting up a toll-free number for staff to call for information.
Benefits of Offsite Data Storage Services
When you invest in offsite data storage, you’ll reap the benefits of greater peace of mind. Data stored offsite means that you can feel confident in the knowledge that your business can handle just about anything, and you won’t have to worry about failing to comply with regulations or missing vital data in the event of an emergency.
Compliance and ease of access are additional key benefits of offsite data storage. In some cases, you may even be required to store a backup of your data in a secure offsite space. Ensuring that you comply with industry regulations is just one way that offsite data storage can help your business. Plus, you’ll be able to access your data quickly and easily thanks to the secure and rapid access provided from our offsite data centres.
