WHEN DISASTER STRIKES PREVENTION AND PREPARATION CAN SAVE THE DAY
Data Disaster Recovery Solutions
Data backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) are two very important and functionally different components of any layered IT security strategy. Some Managed Service Providers (MSPs) may think that their backup software solution will also protect their clients in the event of a technology disaster, but this may not be the case. At SkySail Technologies when we look for a backup and disaster recovery software solution, it’s important we understand the two terms and how they work together.
Data Backup vs. Disaster Recovery
Data backup is the act of storing a copy of files or data to a separate storage location so that in the event those files are lost or damaged, they can be restored.
Disaster recovery is the act of restoring those files and data. Although each is a different business continuity and IT security solution, many companies are combining data backup and disaster recovery into one comprehensive solution for easier and faster restores.
Why Offsite Backups Are Critical
Offsite backups are the most critical form of backup you can have. Between your building burning down or your server being infected with a cryptolock virus, never be left without having a full copy of your data.
Whether you’re backing up to an external hard drive, putting copies of your important files in USB flash drive, burning them to discs, or even backing up to a file server located in your home or office, there’s still a single point of failure. Damage or theft can occur at your home or office and could destroy all copies of your important files.

Disaster Recovery Consulting
Disaster recovery allows you to keep a version or single image of your machine the way it was before a device fails. This includes loaded programs, software and user data. Hard disks are the physical component inside a computer, where your data is saved. Hard disks have a life span of 3 years. With disaster recovery we are able to replace your hard disk and have your system restored within an hour vs reloading your machine and all of your software from scratch. At SkySail Technologies we provide strategic technology and disaster recovery consulting to help prevent and prepare companies for future issues.
