Windows server backup can be a little tricky. The software included with Windows Server 2003 was very basic and didn’t offer functions which would facilitate off site data storage. With introduction of Windows Server 2008 R2, the functionality of the application has improved and can be customized to offer proper and full Windows server backup for your business. This includes off site storage.
Laser SPA NYC, a leading laser hair removal New York City company, asked Computero to develop a comprehensive backup solution. This would not only offer daily backup of their data, but to also include an off site backup solution in the event of equipment theft or destruction. Off site backups are now an essential for every business. Unfortunately, with many rising cyber threats, your organization needs maximum protection from data breaches. Now it is common for many businesses to have multiple backups, following the 3-2-1 rule for backups. Each organization should have 3 copies of data on two different media (like a disk and tape) with one copy off-site. This strategy will help to mitigate possible data loss and create a good disaster recovery plan.
There are many improvements in Windows Server 2008 R2 backup utility. The new utility includes off site removal of backups for disaster protection. You can save backups to multiple disks in a rotation. That way, you to move disks from an off site location. You can add each disk as a scheduled backup location. Then, if the first disk is moved off site, Windows Server Backup will automatically save backups to the next disk in the rotation.
Computero’s solution for Laser Spa NYC Inc. involved setting up multiple USB flash drives with capacities ranging from 16GB to 32GB. It also offered the manager the option to take the backup off site every week.
