Top Tips

  1. Consider a managed solution for ease and convenience
  2. Backups should be offsite with geographic separation
  3. Backups should be stored securely away from perils (fire, flood etc.)
  4. Avoid tape backup as it is susceptible to damage and loss
  5. Automated routines remove margin for human error
  6. Backup is not a business continuity solution; you still need disaster recovery infrastructure to restore your files and data.
