Remote Backup disaster Recovery

Remote Backup disaster Recovery

Remote backup disaster recovery includes a few different moving pieces. The first is remote backups – this essentially means a company that provides networking services, such as iPoint Technologies, routinely makes copies of your company’s most significant data, and then stores those copies on a server that is located somewhere far away from your office. That way, if a disaster occurs – such as a wildfire, or one of your employees clicks on a suspicious link that downloads a ton of ransomware onto your servers, and suddenly you cannot access any business information unless you pay a huge ransom to strangers over the internet – your company’s information is safe and can be recovered! (Take that, fraudsters!)

As we kick-off quarter four, similar to every year, businesses across the nation seek to purchase last-minute IT equipment and accrue other business expenses in preparation for the end of the year. Purchasing technology components and machines is a large undertaking, so it makes sense that many companies choose to push these expenditures to the last quarter of the fiscal year, to be written off during tax season of the following year. To provide an even greater incentive, most technology companies (Dell, Mac, HP, etc.) have attractive year-end promotional discounts and savings on most of their equipment.

If you are a business owner, now is the time to consider upgrading your existing IT infrastructure. Products as simple as a single server for file sharing can be discounted up to $1,500 during the last quarter of 2014. In fact, Dell is currently running a promotion through the end of October which will save the consumer an additional $200 on any of their T-series tower servers. Pair this with iPoint’s Premier Partner discounts, and the savings to your business are exceptional.

The benefits of upgraded equipment are pretty obvious. All businesses suffer during IT down-time, and staying up-to-date with software, equipment and IT maintenance is crucial to avoid potential network shut-downs and emergency operations. Improving employee workstations and network connectivity can also be a huge boost of morality in your office, especially around the holiday season in December. This also improves your company’s credibility with existing and/or prospective clients when they visit your business location.
