What is online backup? What is online backup?

So, what is online backup? In its rawest form, this is copying the data from a local IT system to a secure, remote location. This means that, should disaster strike and your data is lost from the local system then you can easily retrieve it and even choose the version you wish to recover. Online backup can either cover your entire IT system or just your files, and the beauty of Method IT’s online backup services is that your system will be perfectly tailored to your business.

Recovery point objective Recovery point objective

In order to correctly identify the correct online data backup solution for you, there are two key questions that must be answered. Firstly, what is your recovery point objective? Put simply, if you lose your data to an accident or a malicious attack, will you require the latest version of your data possible or would restoring the data to the state in which it was left at the close of the last working day suffice? This informs how regularly off-site mirrored backups must be undertaken.

Recovery time objective Recovery time objective

Secondly, what is your recovery time objective? Could you wait a day, a couple of hours or would it need to be restored within half an hour? It’s only once these questions have been answered that we can develop the best backup system for you. And, if your answer is, ‘I have a lot files and folders, which I’d need restored to the latest version within two hours, should a complete system failure occur’, then you need a business continuity solution rather than an online backup system. We’re renowned for our consultative approach throughout Essex and London. We’ll get to know your business inside and out to find a flawless solution that promises to keep your essential data secure.
