Chicago Managed IT

There are many things that a business must accomplish in order to become profitable. Obviously, it’s not a very easy task to become profitable, as all business would hit a magic button and start rolling in the cash. There are both small things and large processes that businesses can implement to start cutting costs and becoming more profitable. But not all actions need to drive profit within a business. There are some actions that need to be made in order to protect the business.

This is where the importance of data backup and disaster recovery come into play. A business that is a few years old already has a ton of data that it is currently housing. This includes client records as well as financial information. If this information gets lost in a disaster, how is the business supposed to recover? The truth is, it’s very hard for a business of any size to fully recover from lost data or a disaster. While the brick and mortar location may be gone, the real blow comes from the data that gets lost.

Benefits of data backup & recovery include:

  • Peace of Mind- Running a business is stressful enough, you don’t also need to be worrying about whether your data is safe from disaster or not. Get your systems in place and get your files backed up so you can relax. Having your data safe and secured and knowing it can make a huge difference in how you view certain situations. It also makes you more prepared if a disaster does strike.
  • Off-site Storage- Another great benefit includes off-site storage, meaning that your data is safe and sound somewhere else. This can mean the difference in saving data after your building is struck by a natural disaster or fire. Your data will be safe and sound in a secure location miles from your building, so you can focus on continuing to work.
  • Easy Recovery- If the worst does happen, you can rest assured knowing that your data is easily recovered. There are many systems that make recovery difficult, which almost defeats the purpose of the system in the first place. If something does happen to your office or the data in it, rest assured that we are able to recover your files very easily.
