Don't Lose Your Data -- Back It Up!
January 17th, 2019
You can back up your data. Then back it up once more!
The industry standard is the 3-2-1 back up method.
With the 3-2-1 method you are keeping three separate copies of the same data. This includes the original data and at least two other copies with one of the copies being offsite.
How this breaks down:
- Create 3 copies of data.
- Keep data on 2 types of storage media.
- Store 1 of these offsite.
There's no limit to how many copies of data you can keep. The more, the merrier. 3 copies is the minimum, however.
Keeping your information on one device ensures a greater risk of losing it all. It's best to keep at least 2 copies on second devices like network attached drives or a local external hard drive.
Keep 1 copy offsite. Physical threats like theft, fires, and floods, just to name a few, can destroy everything you have on site in seconds. This is why it's best to keep a copy of data geographically separated. Hyperion Works' Managed Offsite Backup Service is an excellent choice for this.
Remember that once your data is gone, there's no getting it back. So back up your back up!
