Onsite, Remote, and Cloud Backups
Anyone who has ever had a mission-critical computer fail can attest it's a highly stressful hassle. Don't let this be you. Worse yet, if your files aren't stored in more than one location, you can lose everything! You could lose your QuickBooks company files, employee records, corporate documents, and so much more.
We have a simple solution: make sure that you have backed up copies of all your files in at least two locations.
The ideal backup standard
There's something called the 3-2-1 rule. Put simply you want at least three copies of your files, on at least two different kinds of storage, and at least one copy of your files off site.
There are multiple ways to accomplish this simple feet, and some options are certainly better than others. Keep in mind you want *at least* one additional copy of your files in *at least* one additional location.
This can be as simple as a file server or network appliance with mirrored hard drives paired with an offsite backup location.
While deploying a full Windows server may be excessive for your business, there are other options for file storage which will fit nicely in your budget and give you a place to securely store your files.
