Picture this scenario: You’re company is embroiled in litigation or picking up the remains of an IT disaster, and there’s one piece of information you desperately need because it was either requested by an opposing party, or required to restore operations. How far would you go to get it back?
The wheels might be turning right now for those of you whose companies haven’t prioritized data backup and recovery. Would you tear through backup tape after backup tape, just to find that one contract or internal email? If that didn’t work, would you go deeper? Perhaps call in a witch doctor or invoke a little black magic to return the information from the other side?
You’d be surprised what desperation can do to an IT professional, especially when compliance, reputation or financial success is on the line. But rest assured that cooler heads always prevail in the most trying of times.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that bad. Unless you feel sitting around an Ouija board in the conference room, a company can also turn to the data backup and recovery services offered by professionals.
By taking a proactive approach to protecting data, decision-makers can rest assured that the organization’s data will be safeguarded against all types of threats – natural disasters and power outages, to name a few – and all other unenviable situations, including litigation. The process is made even easier and more effective when you rely on the services of an information management company.
While necessary, the right approach to data backup and recovery may be too complex for your company to tackle on its own. It’s best to leave it up to the pros. Between backing up data and completing the process to recover and restore it, the whole thing takes too much in the way of expertise and resources for the average company.
Professionals – we’re talking information management, not black magic here – can provide offsite tape storage and recovery services that allow companies to find information when it’s needed most. That sure beats contacting the undead to lend a bit of assistance.
Summary: You’d be surprised what desperation can do to an IT professional, especially when compliance, reputation or financial success is on the line. But rest assured that cooler heads always prevail in the most trying of times.
