Quick post today to remind everyone of the importance of backing up your data.
Reading the daily SmartCompany blog post I came across this article “Crazy Domains loses web hosting data leaving small businesses the victims“.
Another larger example of what goes wrong when you aren’t backing up your own data was DistributeIT who in 2011 lost over 5,000 clients’ websites, emails and data. Can you imagine being one of those businesses? You can read the full SmartCompany article here “Five lessons from the Distribute.IT hosting disaster“.
It makes no difference who the provider is, if you don’t subscribe to a backup service or take regular backups of your data you’re leaving your business wide open to significant loss especially if your online presence is a core part of your day-to-day operations.
Imagine losing all company emails, your website & data that’s stored in the CLOUD. How long will it take your business to recover and if your only presence is online – will you recover at all?
