- Follow the 3-2-1 rule: 3 copies of your data in 2 separate places, with 1 being an off-site cloud provider
- How often do you complete a test restore? You should test weekly (if you have a lot of servers, test-restore a few each week)
- How many points of failure do you have in your backup and restore environment?
- How long can you be down waiting for a restore? Which servers need to be up the soonest?
- If you have a backup server (versus a NAS), does it have the cores, RAM and hard drive speed necessary to meet your recovery objective?
- Data backup hardware and software should be at the top line of your IT budget – push for it if it isn’t there
A backup is only as good as the restore
Data backup is part art and part science. Between your users accidentally deleting files and folders, up to ransomware that can bring your business to its knees, you ultimately need data Peace of Mind (PoM) to ensure your business doesn’t stumble. The ideal backup and restore plan should solve problems and not leave you hanging when you need to restore. Consider these questions when determining your current backup and restore plan:
