Server Backup Guide

Server Backup Guide

Do you have a dependable backup solution for your server? Server backup is a crucial safety feature for personal and business websites alike. A server backup solution serves two functions: storage and recovery. Data can easily be lost, corrupted or stolen, and without a backup solution in place, it poses serious risks to your business or person. Common causes of data loss include physical damage to servers or storage devices, or virtual damage like corruption from viruses, malware, and unreliable software infrastructure or user error. Unfortunately, sometimes these events are unavoidable, even with stringent security measures in place. With a backup solution in place, the situation can at least be recovered as there is a backup record of the data. Make sure your data is secure with a backup server.

A guide to our server backup solutions

The best kind of backup solution is a dedicated backup server. A backup server is a type of server that enables the backup of data, files, applications and databases on a specialised remote server. This allows data to be stored separately from the main server, keeping it safe if the main server is compromised.
