We consider a spare tyre in a car to be a practical and obvious thing - it serves as a "backup" for the function of the wheels. But unfortunately, we're usually already at a loss when it comes to backing up our data. Yet there are only two kinds of companies: those that have already lost data, and those that have yet to lose data. The good news is that with reliable data backup to the cloud, potential data corruption or loss is not a serious problem. Here's how to do it.
Why is data backup so underrated in the first place, when we all rationally or at least subconsciously understand that it is important?
Here are the most common arguments of "notorious non-backupers":
Losing company data can mean losing customer trust (and ultimately financial loss), and in the worst cases, it can even lead to a company's demise. There are more such cases globally than you might think. Is ignoring backups worth the risk?
The first arguments in the list above are the result of ignorance, the last are about user comfort. Sure, times are hectic and we have less and less time - all the more reason not to sacrifice it to lengthy and complicated manual backups. But now imagine not having to manually set up or activate anything and having your data automatically backed up to the cloud. Maximum convenience, zero time loss, absolutely minimal risk of total data loss. Sounds good, right? Plus:
The cloud offers a range of services - backup is no exception. You can transfer your data to the cloud using Veeam Cloud Connect - the advantage is its clear, simple and intuitive user interface. If you're already backing up with Veeam, connecting to the cloud is a matter of moments. Why Veeam Cloud Connect?
Especially after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, some users of Veaam services started to have concerns about data security, claiming that it is a Russian product. It is true that Veeam was founded by Ratmir Timashev and Andrei Baronov in St. Petersburg, but that was in 2006.
In 2020, Veeam was bought for $5 billion by US company Insight Partners and its headquarters moved to Columbus, USA. It now has a number of international offices, including a regional headquarters in Paris. Veeam's largest development centre is in Prague. So you really don't have to worry about data security.
Don't take any chances and get a good night's sleep with reliable data backups to the cloud. Whether you use Veeam or prefer another solution - we'll be happy to suggest the optimal data backup scenario across your company.
