Why to backup a Dedicated Server?
Data loss is a major headache. It is an eventuality you need to prepare for to ensure business continuity and to lessen negative impact on your customers and your bottomline. While the most logical mitigation practice for securing against data loss is replication, it is not as simple as a mere server backup. Duplicating and storing your business-critical data on another disk in the same server that also processes your other business applications just adds other problems to the equation. Suppose it crashes or it gets attacked by malicious actors, even hardware failure and human error are factors that can potentially corrupt your data if you put all your eggs in one basket.
Best practice for data storage and data-loss mitigation is to replicate your data, especially business critical ones, to a dedicated backup storage server physically situated in a secure off-site location. In other words, your duplicate data storage should be separate from where your primary data resides. Storing the replicated data off-site also lessens the risk of data loss in the case of disasters that may affect your primary business location.
A server backup of business critical data is no longer just a luxury for the businesses of today. You need an intelligent approach to data storage and handling more than ever as you forge forward into ever more digital ways of operations and customer interaction.
