Backup as a Service: Why your business needs to consider this step

New concepts come and go, but some stay and become part of life, part of business that we could not do without.

Back up is one of the latter. All over the world, large and small businesses are taking the lead and engaging back up services. Backup as a Service can solve a lot of your business issues. Many of us are so used to computers in our lives; we use the PC or Mac at work, have a Smartphone, and also a laptop at home. But not so many of us understand the importance of backing up our data. You may already be aware of the importance of backing up but not been motivated enough to do anything about it.

Why your business needs to consider external back up

We are all guilty of burying out head in the sand and pretending there is not a potential issue. But just think about what would happen to your business if there was a flood, fire or staff error? There are many reasons to consider Backup as a Service (BaaS). Cloud based backups are an easy and cost effective way of insuring your income and knowing that your important work is protected. This leaves you free to spend more time focusing on your work, on the business, rather than worrying about IT issues.

Backing up your data is vital to ensure you avoid disaster. Why do you need to think about a secure back up? Consider the nightmare if your hard drives fail? Or if a member of staff accidently deletes an important file or folder? Or worse still, if your office is flooded/burns down/broken in to. In fact, backing up is one of the single most important steps you can take to protect your business.

BaaS offers many organisations the ability to back up their data in a cloud based infrastructure. This is beneficial for many reasons and is fast becoming the preferred method of backing up for large and small companies.

Flexibility

You control what is backed up, and you have access to your data 24/7. Installation is simple and fast, plus you get to choose the frequency of backups you want based on your needs. All businesses are different and cloud based back up services offer different options depending on your individual needs. You can choose the level you require.

Security and Safety

Backing up your data is a must if you don’t want to end up in a big mess should something go wrong. Having backup and restore capabilities at your fingertips gives you the peace of mind you need. Using the newest technologies and top of the line infrastructure, all of your data is secure and safe.

Value for Money

BaaS is worth your investment. You can find cost effective and scalable solutions to your data security issues. You can save money on hard drives and multiple IT systems not to mention protect against loss of earnings should something go wrong with your data, such as accidental deletion of important files, or natural disaster.

You do not need to spend money on physical hardware or need to maintain the hardware. You are paying for a service that is run by experts. This should help you sleep well at night!

Responsibility and Ease of Use

Instead of being responsible for several external hard drives all over the place, or old fashioned disks, backing up to a cloud based infrastructure leaves you and your office free of clutter and responsibility. With quick access and state of the art systems, your data is available whenever you need it. And the best part? You don’t need to do anything. The service takes care of all your back up needs leaving you free to focus on your business.
