Organize your data – Prioritize your data to make daily backups of the changing data, and less frequent (e.g. weekly or monthly) backups of your cold data. You can even archive the data that is no longer in use, but is still needed, in another location.
Check your backup target – There are many types of different backup media, including hard drives, solid state storage (e.g. USB sticks); and cloud storage like backup OneDrive.
Create incremental backups – Only the information that has changed since the last backup is included. Can be carried out more quickly and frequently than a full backup. For example backup google drive every day.
Choose the Backup Timeframe – A good backup solution will allow you to customize the frequency for different types of data. This ensures that your most valuable datasets are backed up more frequently.
Backup your on-premisedata into any cloud of your choice – Store backups on at least two different media. Don’t restrict yourself to a single platform. Check for solution which can backup your data to several platforms.
Secure Backup – Run the backup in a secured hosted environment near your location.
Own your data – Choose a provider which do not store it and all communications between the systems are encrypted.
Request a demo – Before choosing a backup provider, ask for a demo, get a referral and do research until you have all the information required. The next key step is evaluating the backup service to make sure it fits your needs.
