Use data analytics to manage backups
The amount of data that the average business manages is unprecedented. And with that shift comes an unavoidable challenge: Deciding which files and records are most important to business continuity. However, with a little creative thinking and implementation, you can ensure the security of your most critical data.
An excess of information
Nowadays, too much data may sound like a good thing. But for many organizations, creating backups in real-time isnâ€™t economical. So if youâ€™ve wondered how you should structure your backup plan to prioritize the critical files, we have an answer: Analytics tools.
Analyzing vast amounts of data quickly and affordably has never been easier for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The key is working with experienced IT professionals to customize a solution to meet your needs. As an MSP (managed IT services provider), weâ€™ve spent years designing business continuity and disaster recovery plans, often for SMBs that couldnâ€™t create backups every hour.
A smarter solution
Depending on your needs, we can set up sophisticated analytics tools that determine what is most essential to your businessâ€™s day-to-day operations. These solutions prioritize data in order of importance and translate that to a backup structure that ensures the right data is safe and sound should disaster strike.
These tools integrate with your existing data-backup solution but provide it with a map of what to save first, and what to leave for later. That results in faster recovery times in the event of untimely outages or disruptions. Furthermore, using analytics increases efficiency and decreases overall backup costs by providing a better picture of what is unimportant versus what is unnecessary.
SMBs have been the drivers of innovation for decades because, as they say, â€œnecessity is the mother of invention.â€ So whether youâ€™re interested in top-of-the-line IT solutions or just need to get a better handle on disaster recovery, weâ€™re ready to create a customized backup solution, just for you. Take a second to analyze that, then give us a call.
