Are your data backups reliable?

Posted by David S. Mulvey on 9/20/21 3:56 PM

One of the biggest nightmares for any business owner is downtime, as it results in a significant loss in productivity which translates directly to lost revenue. There are several scenarios in which businesses can experience downtime and as a result need to rely on your data backup solution to restore your operations.

  • Ransomware attack or other cybersecurity incident whereas the criminals encrypt your business data
  • Natural disaster like the recent storms that devastated much of the Greater Philadelphia Region
  • Buggy software updates that cause slowness or other technical issues on your network

Most businesses adopt cloud solutions to mitigate downtime, increase IT stability, and gain access the remote work capabilities.

Moving key workloads and applications to Microsoft Azure offers a key benefit -- it increases resiliency and is an important piece of your business’s data backup and disaster recovery plans. Microsoft Azure is built to keep your critical applications online, even in the face of a disaster.
