CoDimensions backup and data recovery (BDR) solutions can make the life of IT professionals, who are responsible for keeping the vital information safe and accessible, much easier.  The once painful chore of on-site and off-site data backup now can be easy and reliable, while also ensuing the fast recovery of data and the IT systems in their entirety.

Do You Backup Your Data?

In today’s world, technology is a key aspect to all parts of your business. From accounting and management to day-to-day communication, more and more parts of your business are performed solely on computers. Companies must take advantage of today’s technology to stay competitive. Email now-a-days is the preferred method of communication, and computers are integral for executing transactions and storing valuable data. With the importance of computers and technology, it is critical that every organization has a complete solution to deal with the threat of data loss.

How it was solved in the past

In the past, companies have backed up their data using magnetic tapes which were then typically stored off-site. While a usable method for incrementally backing up data off-site, this process is tedious and time-consuming. For small businesses without a dedicated IT staff, maintaining an up-to-date tape library can be easily overlooked and can result in permanent data loss.

Small to medium businesses can suffer severe repercussions if their critical data is not securely backed up at an off-site location. A fire, power surge, hardware failure, or even basic operator error can wipe out years of data.  According to IDC (a leading market research firm), less than 40% of all small to medium-sized businesses properly and regularly backup their data.  These businesses cannot afford to lose time attempting to rebuild their lost vital information. 

What can be done today

In order to prevent such a situation from happening, it is imperative that an off-site storage system be used, providing secure copies of all data. Off-site backup devices ensure that if physical disaster (fire, flood, theft, etc.) were to strike your data center and/or office, all lost information can be retrieved from the off-site location. Most off-site backup options use the Internet to transfer data back to the business location. It can take weeks, or even months, to download all of a company’s data from the web. With Codimensions Inc. backup solutions, a new device can be overnight shipped to your location with all of your otherwise-lost data. This allows businesses to recover multiple terabytes of information in 24 hours, which would be nearly impossible through Internet transfer.
