Backup and Data
Protection for the SMB
What They Need To Know
Today’s small to mid-sized businesses, or SMBs, are creating more data than ever. Their growth calls for robust solutions to back up their business-critical data.
Due to limited financial and IT resources, it is crucial for SMBs to know exactly what to look for in a backup solution. In this guide we’ll be outlining key criteria for SMBs to keep in mind when seeking out total data protection.
Before we jump into that criteria, it is important to understand why backup is critical for an SMB.
Successful backup is the foundation for disaster recovery and business continuity. Without it, recovery and continuity cannot exist. Technologies that were created decades ago to store data are simply not enough. Antiquated methods, like tape backup, aren’t going to ensure data retention and recovery during business critical time windows.
When choosing a backup solution, SMBs should look for 6 important pieces of criteria: comprehensiveness, ease of use, recoverability, performance and reliability, affordability, and scalability.
