Backup & Data Protection

Hardware or software failures, data corruption, ransomware attacks, or simply accidental deletion can result in large amounts of data being lost. Backups provide a safety net when things go wrong and are an indispensable part of planning your infrastructure.

Setting the foundation: 3-2-1

Only a well-structured backup strategy enables data recovery when you need it. If you are just starting, or if you are in the process of rethinking your existing system, follow the 3-2-1 backup rule:

What makes it a great backup strategy?
