Cloud Solutions, Offsite Disaster Recovery Solutions, and Server Backups
Has your business experienced data loss due to power outages, accidental deletion, or unauthorized users? With data backup solutions from Upfront, you never have to worry about losing critical information when disaster strikes your business.
Data backup is the process of securing your personal or company data by storing it in multiple locations. Backing up data is important for any business because it ensures you won’t lose important information if your server crashes, software fails, or data is stolen from an unauthorized user.
Upfront Computer Solutions implements these types of data backup solutions:
Cloud storage is an online data backup solution that stores company information on remote servers. Google Drive and Dropbox Basic are excellent backup solutions for small businesses because they’re free of charge. These two options do come with risks, though, since they are not private.
If your small business is looking for a secure cloud backup service, turn to Upfront Computer Solutions. Our team can set up a private cloud storage system for your company. Depending on the amount of data you’re backing up, you could download anywhere from 2GB to 10TB on a private cloud.
If your business requires a larger cloud solution, let us implement it for you.
Cloud disaster recovery plans are beneficial because they don’t take up space on your devices. Data stored in the cloud is only taking up space in that specific cloud. Your business doesn’t have to buy more storage for company devices when you use a cloud storage plan.
Other benefits of cloud backups include:
- Cost efficiency
- Sharing files easily
- Having multiple users’ data in one space
- Automatic backup
- No data loss when hackers access data
- No data loss during natural disasters
Upfront Computer Solutions helps you find the perfect cloud storage for your small or large business.
External hard drives are convenient, portable drives you plug into your computer or connect wirelessly to increase storage. Like cloud backups, you pick how much storage you want on an external hard drive, making it a great data backup solution for small and large businesses.
External hard drives are portable and inexpensive, but if they break, you’ll lose all the data stored on them. We recommend using a cloud backup in addition to external hard drives or using multiple hard drives so your data is stored in more than one backup solution.
Network-attached storage (NAS) connects to a network instead of a device, so anyone connected to that network has access to it. NAS devices also contain more than one hard drive—they hold two to five hard drives in one area.
One downside of using NAS as your primary backup plan is it’s typically connected to Wi-Fi, so if your network is down, you can’t access your NAS. Use Upfront Computer Solutions’ cloud backup plans alongside NAS devices to keep your data stored in multiple places.
Unlike NAS devices and hard drives, software-based storage is not a physical object. It’s user-friendly software that’s installed on your devices. You choose which people have access to this backup software as well as which files you want on it.
Backup software is easy to use because it automatically backs up data, so you don’t have to manually put files onto the software.
Implementing a data backup solution is essential for any business. If important data is lost or stolen without being backed up, it causes entire operations to shut down. A lot of companies that do have backups in place often forget to utilize them. If you’re experiencing error messages, data storage problems, high cloud costs, or unreliable systems, you need help with your data backup.
Upfront Computer Solutions updates your backup systems regularly and removes the stress of regular data backup from your company by offering 24/7 support. We help with:
- Data breach recovery
- Disaster recovery in the event of natural disasters or shutdowns
- Data monitoring
- Scalability of backup solutions
- Recovering deleted files
Upfront Computer Solutions also performs full, incremental, and differential backups.
A full backup is a backup of all existing data, no matter when the data was created. We perform this daily or weekly depending on your needs. A full backup ensures that your data is updated and safe.
An incremental backup is the process of backing up data that has changed since the last full or incremental backup. We perform this type of backup on all of your storage solutions multiple times a week to make sure any new data is included in your cloud, NAS device, or hard drive.
Differential backups only back up data created since the last full backup. If files change from the last full backup, a differential backup updates only those files, not incremental backup files.
If you’ve never performed a backup, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. There’s company data, personal data, and software data that need to be backed up consistently.
Upfront Computer Solutions is here to assist you every step of the way, from performing initial full backups to installing the best cloud solutions for your business. We ensure your company has the best data backup solutions that suit your business.
Without our storage solutions, your company faces many cyber threats:
- Complete loss of documents and essential information
- Loss of revenue and credibility if you lose client information
- Losing data permanently if it’s stolen
