The ideal backup solution for you and your business.
How important is data to your business?
The answer is that it is probably essential as we all rely on data to run our systems every day – it is something we may even take for granted. But what would happen if you were to suffer some form of catastrophic data loss?
Having a solid backup and disaster recovery strategy is essential for minimising the impact of unplanned downtime on your business. Backing up can take some effort, but thanks to new software, hardware, and services, it’s easier than ever.

Traditional Backups - Local and Cloud
Back up files and folders to hard disk storage, either locally or in the cloud. This is a good solution if you are concerned purely about data. As an example, a traditional nightly backup of data to a local disk would have an RPO (Recovery Point Objective) of up to 24 hours. The RTO (Recovery Time Objective) can be anywhere from a couple of hours, up to a week depending on volume of data: 10MG could take 25 mins to download whereas 7GB would take closer to 7 days.
Disk backups are still widely used and provide a reliable form of file and folder backup. Depending on speed of connection and volume of data, they can produce several RPO’s of several backups in a day.
Image-Based Backup using VEEAM and Storagecraft
Servers can be either individual piece of hardware, or more commonly these days virtual machine monitors (computer software, firmware or hardware that creates and runs virtual machines).
The process is to create a backup image of the entire server on a regular basis to be able to restore files, folders or even the entire server in the event of a failure. This can be done On Premise or in the Cloud.
The options for backing up in either scenario is different. StorageCraft is used to back up the single hardware server and Veeam to back up the virtual server.
Cloud: Microsoft 365 and Acronis Data Security
Cloud-based backup and recovery provide organisations with access to systems and data in a secure, virtual environment. Microsoft do have backup policies in place, recovery options include:
– Exchange Online
While Microsoft 365 has a wide range of services, features and benefits, there are some valid concerns regarding data loss and protection for any business using Microsoft 365. Although Microsoft 365 has ways of restoring data, the process can be time-consuming and complicated. Therefore, it’s worth using an expert 3rd party like Acronis for a complete backup and recovery solution.
