How to Develop an Effective Data Backup Policy

How to Develop an Effective Data Backup Policy | Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

A typical backup policy will involve three types of backups.
- Full backups contain all the information needed to restore a service. Naturally, they require the most resources and take the longest time to run, which means you won't want to run full backups every time you want to save data.
- Differential backups contain the cumulative changes since the last full backup.
- Incremental backups are similar to differential backups, except that they reflect only the changes since the previous differential backup.


What's the best mix of full, differential, and incremental backups? The answer differs for every business, depending on several factors, including budget. Restore time, for instance, plays a key role in determining backup policy...The only way to prevent disasters with backups is to test them regularly – each month or even more frequently – in order to ensure that your data restores properly and within the allowed timeframe.

Real Business - Cloud computing: Is your business prepared? | Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

Cloud computing offers businesses the opportunity to outsource their IT services, reducing both time and cost efficiently.
