In honor of World #BackupDay on March 31st, Lifeboat Distribution, along with our top Backup and Recovery vendors, have joined together to remind our reseller partners to help your customers backup their important files.
But first, what is a backup? And what are the best practices in the industry? Backing up data is simply making a copy of important data in a secondary location. A common practice is to follow the 3-2-1 backup rule. The 3-2-1 backup rule is: keep at least three copies of your data, and store two backup copies on different storage media, with one of them located offsite. Anything from human error, like losing your cell phone or dropping it in water, to viruses, ransomware or a natural disaster, are all reasons to practice the 3-2-1 rule of backup so you won’t become a statistic. So remember:
- Create 3 copies of your data – 1 primary copy and 2 backups
- Store 2 copies of your data on different storage media
- Keep 1 copy of your data offsite
