Good data backups are a critical piece to the process of keeping your systems up and healthy. Having, and implementing, solid backup procedures can provide peace of mind, so that you can focus on the tasks at hand, like keeping your business running and moving forward. From basic Windows backups, to full implementations of enterprise class backup systems, such as Symantec Backup Exec, CA ARCServe Backup, and Storage Area Networks (SANs), we provide the right solution for your particular business needs.
When you simply need to recover a single file, it is typically not an earth shattering event, though it is nice to know that these files are available from backup. However, there are those times when full systems fail and business critical applications become unavailable. It’s at times like these when good data backup procedures come in handy. From the simplest of single file recovery, to full system disaster recovery, we can put you at ease by getting those systems back online with seemingly relative simplicity.
Data loss can be as small as losing a single spreadsheet file or document that you’ve spent a days work on (it doesn’t feel small when it happens though!) all the way up to complete system, or worse yet, systems, failure. As always, good backup procedures are a must. But, what if? What if those backups aren’t there, or are too old to be useful? It cannot be emphasized enough: If you are not currently backing up your data, or are relying on an automated system that is rarely monitored, you could be in trouble. Data recovery techniques do exist however. From simple recovery of a single file or folder, to complete system restoration, the possibility of recovering the lost data is there, so don’t give up hope. If you need to recover deleted data, ensure that the computer or server in question is not utilized in any way. The more hard disk activity there is, the less chance there will be of recovering the lost information. If the computer or server is being used to share files with other users, alert everyone to the situation, and disconnect the network cabling so as to prevent further activity on the machine.
A system failure can mean many different things. Every situation is unique, and needs to be evaluated on a case by case basis. Did the memory go bad, or did the power supply fail? Did the hard drive crash, or is it simply a faulty program that was recently installed? Can the data be recovered? In the vast majority of cases the answer is yes. Even when it is a hard drive failure, there are still some possibilities. If you have a failed system, and aren’t sure what your alternatives are, give us a call or send us an email.
