Data backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, whether by deletion or corruption or in the event of a natural disaster. The secondary purpose of backups is to recover data from an earlier time. Global Edge can provide several diverse offsite backup options that scale to meet your organizations increasing data requirements.

Why have a corporate backup plan?

  • Emergencies will happen: No operation or system runs smoothly 100% of the time.  Hardware goes down, software can crash, natural disasters, power failures and human error are bound to occur.
  • Threats are increasing: Today’s new threats include hackers, phishing attacks, email scams and corporate espionage.
  • Data is crucial: Your data affects everything from strategy to execution of business operations.

Types of backups and storage

  • Full backups: complete backup of all of the selected data
  • Incremental backups: only back the data that has changed since the previous backup
  • Differential backups: back up all the data that has changed since the last full backup
  • Box to box backup
  • Cloud backup
