Richmond, VA, Oct 18, 2010 –(PRLog)– In information technology world, a backup or the process of backing up refers to making copies of data so that these additional copies may be used to restore the original after a data loss. The verb is back up in two words, whereas the noun is backup (often used like an adjective in compound nouns).

Backup storage solutions are useful primarily for two purposes. The first is to restore a state following a disaster (called disaster recovery). The second is to restore small numbers of files after they have been accidentally deleted or corrupted. Data loss is also very common. 66% of internet users have suffered from serious data loss

The BEL Network Integration & Support (BELNIS) Desktop, Laptop, and Windows Server Backup solution offers secure and automatic, offsite backup that is ideal for enterprise, remote-office, or branch-office environments. The Desktop, Laptop, and Windows Server Backup solution, which you can configure, deploy, and centrally manage through a web-based administrative console accessible from anywhere in the world. This low-cost and low-maintenance solution is available as a monthly as well as yearly subscription service, requires no hardware purchase, and can be managed with minimal IT resources.

Computer data backup is when you make a copy of all important data from your computers. The intention of creating a backup is to be able to recover from a disaster which might have destroyed data within the computer(s).

Computer and Server Data Backup procedure

The usual procedure that is followed is to first create a copy of all software that might have been purchased. This need be done only once for each software. After making your software backup, create backups of all data within all computers in the office. Such backup should be done on a regular basis. The regularity depends upon the volume of data that is added or changed within a week, month or year. Data so backed up should be properly labeled so there is no confusion. The label should contain the department or section name, computer number or name of person who uses it and the date and time when the backup was made.

As a rule of thumb, all business establishments, government bodies, hospitals and clinics should backup data at the end of each working day. Charitable trusts, Non-profit organizations, self-employed professionals and students should backup data at least once a week.

Everyone is however free to decide how they wish to create a backup. For example, large establishments store data in centralized location called servers. So instead of creating one backup per computer, they might wish to create backups of specific types of data. Thus a mall may create data backups of sales for each particular day, and then create data backups of inventory for each day and so on. Irrespective of what procedure or method is followed, the basic principle, i.e. full recovery from disaster should be kept in mind when creating a backup procedure. In any case, you should plan to use the services of your IT and Networking Support company when creating a backup procedure.

Storage of data backup and online data storage backup

If you store the backup tapes or disks in your office, then they should be stored in secure fire-proof cupboards. It is also a good idea to store copies of your data at a secure location other than your office.
