What’s your backup strategy?

We all know the important concept of having onsite or offsite backup.   Files accidentally get deleted, or hardware in a server fails, and data critical to businesses gets damaged or disappears and etc.  Believe it or not there are businesses out there that don’t backup their computers on a regular basis.  Most businesses don’t have the time or resources to backup data as often as necessary.  This is where BTInet comes into place.

 BTInet offers backup to disk and backup to tape.  Check out our options and which one will best fit your company. 

If you are in the market for offsite backup – be sure to look for the following characteristics:

* It must be physically secure. Our private fiber between our data center and our backup facility, allows us to store your back up data in an offsite facility without the risk and delay of using a tape courier. This maximizes the physical security of your data.

* It must have sufficient distance away from the original site. Our backup equipment is located in a steel reinforced concrete building separate from our data center that is designed to withstand an F5 tornado.

* It must be in a naturally safe zone.  See above.

* It must be verifiable and accessible. Periodic testing of backup restores is needed, to ensure that the system works and your backup data is preserved and can be reached quickly to recover when something happens to your main backup location.
