DISASTER RECOVERY & DATA BACKUP
Why Your Business Needs Secure Data Backup
In case you didn’t realise, data is the world’s number one commodity. That’s right- even oil is less valuable in economic terms. So protecting this should be a top priority for you to grow and prosper as a business owner or director!
After working with over 100 small and mid-size businesses in the the North East and Dublin regions, we at Cinnte found that 60% of businesses will experience some type of major network or technology disaster.
That doesn’t even include lost productivity, sales, and client goodwill that can be damaged when a company can’t operate or fulfill on its promises due to technical problems.
What will the cost be to my business if I don’t have secure backups?
Here's the short answer - On average this type of disaster will end up costing a business between €10,000 and €60,000 in repairs and restoration cost.
But that doesn’t even include lost productivity, sales, and client goodwill that can be damaged when a company can’t operate or fulfill on its promises due to technical problems.
Unfortunately, we have found out in a reactive sense, whereby we have had to step in to rectify or aim to rectify damage that has been allowed happen under another IT provider’s watch.
Often by the time we are contacted by a panic stricken business owner, we are cleaning up the mess left by some other sloppy and unprofessional IT providers!
Remote Backups: What They Are And Why EVERY Business Should Have Them In Place
The ONLY way to completely protect your data and guarantee that you could restore it all after a major disaster is by maintaining an up-to-date copy of your data offsite in a high-security facility. Tape backups in 2020 are no longer sufficient to protect your data as they are highly liable to failure.
Remote backups, also called offsite backups, online backups, or managed backups, is a service that allows you to maintain a secure copy of your data in a different location than your office.

Usually this type of backup is done automatically via the Internet after hours to a high-security facility. There is no question that every business owner should have an offsite copy of their data; however, there ARE big differences among remote backup services and it’s critical that you choose a good provider or you could end up paying a lot of money only to discover that recovering your data - the very reason why you set up remote backups in the first place - is not an easy, fast, or simple job.
Cloud backup, or cloud computer backup, refers to backing up data to a remote, cloud-based server. Cloud backup solutions enable our customers to store their data and computer files on the Internet rather than storing the data locally on a physical disk, such as a hard drive or tape backup.
Cinnte offers a cloud based backup using the latest server imaging software to mirror backups and store it safely on remote location in the cloud. We offer multiple backup and disaster recovery plans, should your system go down we promise to get you operational minimum disruption.
