In IT, redundancy is actually a goal for your infrastructure. Redundancy pertains to data security and business continuity. Organizations want their data stored in multiple locations so as to make it easier to recover from potential issues that might come up. Essentially, achieving data redundancy is the same as taking proactive measures to keep your information safe in the event of a catastrophic data disaster, such as the failure of a mission-critical piece of hardware, or the theft of vital information from a hacking attack.
It’s important to take into account that most businesses who experience a deadly data disaster, and aren’t capable of recovering from it, will declare bankruptcy within a year of the incident. Your business basically has no choice but to ensure the redundancy of its data, and to make sure that it’s safe and secure from both internal and external threats, including data theft, user error, and especially hardware failure.
What your business needs to be taking advantage of is a comprehensive data backup and disaster recovery solution, specifically designed to augment a business continuity plan through redundant data storage. Your business needs to move forward knowing that in the worst-case scenario, you won’t lose your entire data infrastructure; instead, all you have to do is initiate a backup from the cloud, mitigating data loss and preventing downtime.
This is exactly what Aspire’s backup and disaster recovery solution offers. Our BDR device is designed to offer a comprehensive data backup process and a seamless disaster recovery solution in one convenient package. You can have multiple backups take place throughout the day, and have these backups stored in off-site data centers and the cloud. You can shield your business from expensive and costly downtime by rapidly initiating your disaster recovery solution. In fact, in the event of a hardware failure or similar disaster, the deployment of your data occurs so quickly that the BDR device itself can temporarily take the place of your server, practically eliminating downtime while you search for replacement hardware.
