34% of companies fail to test their tape backups, and of those that do, 77% have found tape back-up failures.
And to top it off 6% of all PC’s will suffer an episode of data loss in any given year according to The Cost of Lost Data by David M. Smith.
Telephone PBX system problems also become more prevalent as PBX’s age and carriers skimp on network maintenance. How do you recover lost data as well as your incoming call traffic and extensions?
The fact remains that there are factors that are out of your control, and that could be devastating to your company. So you therefore should be worried about losing your data, because of the consequences involved.
So what are the viable options available in order to mitigate these random threats and get them under your control? One such option is cloud backup & recovery and another option of Total Telecom Recovery.
It seems like everybody and their mother has jumped on the cloud backup and recovery bandwagon yet none of them focus on recovering telecoms traffic. 75% of companies will use enterprise-class cloud computing solutions within 5 years. The specific benefit of cloud based services is that it drastically reduces costs and burden of disk and tape backup management.
Cloud backup/recovery and telecom recovery provide a fully managed solution with proactive remote access and monitoring, leaving you free to focus on core projects instead of backup chores.
If you have not explored the area of cloud computing, Remote Backup or Telecom Recovery yet, I encourage you to research it.
