Data Retention

Data is the life of your business. Losing this data would be devastating. Blue Coast Networks, Inc. can assist you in securing your data. We can develop a 3-tiered approach to securing your data:

  • The first step involves making the primary storage for your systems redundant. For small setups this would be a Raid-0 approach. This creates an identical mirror of your data on two separate hard drives. In the event of a failure, the second drive immediately takes over with no loss of data. For larger, more complex setups, RAID 0+1 or RAID 5 can be employed to improve storage efficiency and access time without compromising the redundancy of your data.
  • The second tier of data storage is a reliable, scheduled back-up solution. This could be as simple as DVD backups, but preferably should involve a small tape drive or newer removable hard drive solution. Choosing the right backup method and schedule is critical to ensuring your data is protected.
  • The last step of securing your data involves securing your data in two physically separate locations. A fire or other unexpected disaster can destroy local copies of data, for this reason keeping data safe involves multiple locations.

Data is fragile and proper planning is a must to ensure its survivability. Don't wait for disaster to strike, the cost of recovering data can easily be in the thousands of dollars. Proactive solutions can keep your business running and save you money in the event of a hard drive failure.
