Data Storage vs Data Backup: What Does Your Company Need?
Data storage involves the way your information is archived and how it’s accessed. At Global IP, we offer three forms of managed data storage to cover every type of business: on-premise, cloud, and cloud hybrid solutions. When data is stored on cloud servers, it’s accessible from anywhere at any time, while on-premise centers offer the highest levels of security.
Backup, meanwhile, is a process of data duplication that stores copies of data on separate servers. Even if the primary data source gets lost, destroyed, or corrupted, a backup solution provides copies that can be restored. When your company data is backed up through Global IP, you’ll always be able to recover your assets with minimal downtime.
We recommend using a combination of data storage and some form of backup to ensure that you’re always able to access your data without risking its security. Each enterprise has its own system, needs, and procedures. Contact us and we’ll help you determine the best course of action for your business.
