Backup & Disaster Recovery

Despite the importance of backup and disaster recovery, it is not always in the top of mind for many organizations. Many business owners or even the persons in charge believe that a disaster is something that happens to other people, other organizations, but not them.

Some organizations treat backup and disaster recovery as only a protection measure against only computer virus, malware or ransomware attacks. If we give a second thought, we will realize that disasters come in all shapes and sizes - accidental deletes, application crashes, hardware malfunctions, or even malicious acts from insiders. The ramification can range from subtle to detrimental for the entire business.
 

Key points to consider

To design a practical backup and disaster recovery strategy, business owners or IT in-charge shall consider the following:
 
What data needs to backup
What data needs to backup

What data needs to backup

  • Not all data carries the same weight, but every single byte in backup storage comes with a cost. By knowing and classifying what to backup, one can keep the budget reasonable.
 
RPO (Recovery Point Objective)
RPO (Recovery Point Objective)

RPO (Recovery Point Objective) - Maximum tolerable loss of data

  • RPO helps to measure how much time can occur between our last data backup and a disaster without causing severe damage to our business. It determines how often we need to perform data backups.
 
RTO (Recovery Time Objective)
RTO (Recovery Time Objective)

RTO (Recovery Time Objective) – Maximum downtime allowed

  • RTO helps to measure how long our business can survive following a disaster before operations restore to normal. It determines the disaster recovery solution to adopt to achieve the targeted time frame for recovery.

Where to Store

Where to Store – Local, Offsite or Cloud

  • Storage location for backups determines the cost to pay. In the ideal situation, we recommend the 3-2-1 Backup Principle.
 
It means:
  • Keep three copies of data (1 primary & 2 backups)
  • Keep backups on two different types of storage media (E.g. tape, hard drive etc.)
  • Keep one backup copy offsite
