How are you backing up your important data? It doesn’t matter if you are a small shop of 1 or small business of 200. Your data is important and you need to protect it.
BDR stands for Backup, Disaster Recovery. Its goes beyond simply backing up data to a NAS(network attached storage), External Hard Drives, Tape or even to the Cloud. It is a solution best suited for a small business that has server or servers and restoring back to production is a huge requirement. It usually involves an appliance on location and full image backups of servers are performed and saved to the local appliance and then uploaded to the “cloud”. By doing this it provides several levels of protection.
1. If you need to restore a single file, you can restore that file from either the local appliance or from the cloud
2. If your server goes down, you can “spin up” the imaged you backed up again locally.
3. Importantly, If a major disaster like fire hits your business you can “spin up” the imaged server in the cloud. From a temporary office have access to your servers without a missed Beat
Cloud Backup is the latest coined phrase, back in the early 2000’s it was called offsite backup. So why is cloud backup so important anyway? Before cloud backup, disaster recovery minded small businesses would rotate backup tapes offsite manually with key employees or use safety deposit boxes to store monthly and yearly backups or get fireproof safes and store the tapes there. With the invent of the internet and the increasing speeds it became possible to use software to take that data and send it into the “Clouds” to some data center. Over the years, it went from saving data to making it possible to save entire machines(Images of your servers) and finally made it possible to be able to mount these images online and make them available.
So the question is it safe? Yes many data centers not only encrypt the data before it goes into the “clouds”, the data is encrypted on the server protected by a private key that only the end user knows. As well as the data is redundantly saved on multiple servers
