Data Backup Strategies

Let’s run through the various strategies we can use at Geeks2U to help keep your data safe.

Local Backup

Local backup refers to storing your data on physical devices such as external hard drives, USB flash drives, or CDs/DVDs. This method is cost-effective and allows for quick data access, but storing the backup device in a safe and separate location is essential to avoid loss or damage

Cloud Backup

Cloud backup involves storing your data on remote servers, accessible via the internet. This strategy provides greater security and convenience, as you can access your backups from anywhere with an internet connection. You can also use encryption and syncing to keep everything safe and up to date!

Hybrid Backup

Hybrid backup combines the best of both local and cloud backup strategies – we can keep a local copy for quick access and a cloud copy for added security.

Network Attached Storage (NAS)

NAS is a dedicated storage device connected to your network, allowing multiple users to access, share, and store files. This strategy is particularly useful for small businesses and home offices, providing centralised storage with easy access and backup capabilities.

Tape Backup

This traditional method of data storage uses magnetic tapes to archive data. Though considered outdated by some, tape backup can still be a cost-effective and reliable option for large-scale data storage.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

DRaaS is a cloud-based service that helps businesses recover their IT infrastructure and data in the event of a disaster, such as a cyber attack, natural disaster, or hardware failure. By providing a comprehensive disaster recovery plan, DRaaS ensures minimal downtime and a quick return to normal operations,

Backup as a Service (BaaS)

BaaS is a subscription-based service that automates and manages your data backups remotely. This approach allows you to offload the burden of backup management to a trusted third party.
