Backup & Disaster Recovery
Protecting your data is essential. Backing up data at the proper intervals and being able to quickly restore it in the event of a disaster is a key competence your MSP needs. Most MSPs offer backup services, but not all offer disaster recovery services. Backups are critical when data is corrupted or lost, or if a system is infected. Disaster recovery is a plan to ensure your IT systems and data are back up and running should your IT assets (e.g., data center) be destroyed by a major disaster, such as a fire, a hurricane, or even a major data breach. More advanced MSPs use sophisticated automated technology backups for most network equipment, ensuring faster recovery in case of a failure.
