How To Back Up Your Data

As a business owner, you probably know how important it is to back up your data on a regular basis. It helps you keep information even if your server crashes or is infected by a virus. There are several ways you can ensure that you don’t lose your data if something like that happens.

Cloud Storage

Many businesses use cloud storage to back up their information. If you use a service such as IBM i Cloud to host your network, it may even come with an automatic daily backup. Cloud backup not only saves your information but also lets you access it from various locations. It also less susceptible to damage than other storage options.

Flash Drive

A flash drive is a simple backup to use. It is portable, which makes it a convenient backup to use if you work in two different locations. If you have a lot of files to save, you may need more than one flash drive.

External Hard Drive

An external hard drive gives you greater storage capacity than a flash drive. It either connects to the main computer via USB or through a wireless connection.

Choose the backup that works best for you. No matter which method you choose, backing up your data regularly can save you a lot of time and stress.
