Memphis, TN (PRWEB) June 20, 2005
Recent earthquake activity along several of the nationÂs major fault lines clearly illustrates the need for sending backups of valuable computer data offsite. Earthquakes can destroy backup tapes along with the computers that generated the data if both are kept in the same location, as most are. Businesses of all types and sizes are benefiting from the redundancy, automation, and security that a remote backup service provides.
Earthquakes can force computer users to evacuate offices without notice - leaving computers and backup tapes behind and making it impossible to do business, sometimes for days or weeks.
"People are playing Russian roulette with their business data," said Tommy Gardner, Director of Sales and Marketing at Remote Backup Systems Inc. "Many companies, especially those in the small-and-medium business sector, don't realize that they are at such a high risk for data loss.Â Gardner continued, ÂThe loss of critical data stores can quickly put these companies out of business, so backing up computer data to an off-site location is now as essential as locking your doors at night."
Gardner recommends regularly moving copies of business-critical data offsite to secure storage facilities. RBS' RBackup Remote Backup software enables IT and computer service companies to automatically back up their clientÂs computers via the internet or other network connections. Instead of backing up to tape drives or CDs, both which require manual configuration and transportation, RBackup runs automatically, usually at night after a business is closed. Data backed up to a remote location can be recovered even if the computer that created it is completely destroyed.
