What Can You Do to Improve Data Recovery?

What Can You Do to Improve Data Recovery?

Let’s face it; nobody wants to talk about disaster recovery, as even invoking these words makes the possibility a reality. Unfortunately, this is something that has to be discussed, as your business depends on it. This might seem like hyperbole, but if you knew what is at stake, you’d likely agree with us.

The truth is that, without a backup and disaster recovery solution in place, your chances of redundancy are limited. A BDR solution can be a major preventative measure that can make all the difference.

Determine Your RPO and RTO
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) are both key components of data backup and disaster recovery. RPO and RTO correspond to how much data you want to back up, and how much time you have to recover your data before consequences strike, respectively. The primary goal that you want to aim for is to back up as much data as you think you need to get back into a proper operational standpoint. This should also prioritize recovery time, keeping it to a minimum and thereby eliminating downtime and data loss.

Figure Out Where Your Backups Are Stored
After you know how much data you need to back up and how long you have to restore a backup, the next step is to figure out where you want to store your backups. Storing them on-site can be risky, as the site of the disaster scenario is often in-house. Still, you want to have at least one copy on-premise, supplemented by copies of your data off-site in a data center and in the cloud.

Test Your Backups to Ensure Reliability
What if you experience a disaster and your data recovery solution doesn’t work? This is the worst-case scenario, and one that you want to actively avoid by routinely testing your data backups. This ensures that they aren’t corrupted or damaged when you need them most. With so many responsibilities on your plate every day, it’s not surprising that a lot of organizations turn to third parties to make sure it all gets done.

Symmetric Engineering Group can help your business with any aspect of data backup and disaster recovery implementation, from deciding on a solution to testing backups to ensure they work as intended. To learn more, reach out to us at (813) 749-0895.
