Would Your Business Survive Data Loss?

Data Loss Could Cost You Your Business

Data loss from unexpected events will happen; however, many employers do not make data backup a priority until it is too late. Hackers, viruses, hardware failures, natural disasters and user error all pose threats daily to your valuable data. One unforeseen event and your data could be lost with little to no warning. Take for instance the deletion of files from the Toy Story 2 movie, where a worker at Pixar accidentally used an RM “remove all” command on the master root of all the directories. The work of 30 people and a years worth of work was gone. A full disk situation masked error warnings for over a month about faulty backups. In the end, one of the technical directors had a local copy on her home computer. That copy helped in the recovery process, however parts of the show were never fully recovered.

What we can learn from Pixar is the importance of a flexible, successful, reliable and verifiable working backup solution.
