Developing a data backup strategy begins with identifying your most critical data, selecting and implementing hardware and software backup procedures, scheduling and conducting backups, and periodically validating that data has been accurately backed up.
An increasing number of businesses of all shapes and sizes are backing up their data via online services. With a growing marketplace for these services, small organizations with low budgets often find a match with a service like Amazon’s Glacier. Modest budgets needing large amounts of data backed up might be served well with other providers like CrashPlan, iDrive or iBackup.
Pachyderm has also developed our own cloud data backup service called TrunkSpace which will enable you to back up your data as well as virtualize your network as part of your disaster recovery plan.
