One of them even utilizing Virtual Data Center (VDC) for that need.

As it is stated in the article before, the role of VDC can replace the need for business to own and operate their own data center. Rather than relying on physical servers to protect business systems and applications, now you can have virtual servers in a private, public, or hybrid cloud environment.

However, using VDC only is not enough for business to manage its IT infrastructure. A data protection strategy like VDC Backup is also needed to secure its system and applications that run virtually. Thus, business can securely store their systems and applications in their VDC.

Many companies are constantly challenged in meeting policy and regulations for data storage, digital transactions management, and disaster recovery. Regulations tend to be industry-specific and call for the confidentially, portability, and accessibility of information.

Data Backup and business continuity policies must be executed to achieve data compliance. With VDC Backup like in Zettagrid Indonesia, business can leverage its data protection and disaster recovery for regulatory compliance and provide consistent business value and customer satisfaction. 

Then, what is the right backup strategy?

  • Cloud Backups: This could be an essential part of a smart backup strategy. By implementing Cloud Backup like VDC Backup, it will ensure that if your business suffers a natural disaster, you are able to restore your data off-site.
  • Encryption of Data In-Transit: Before being Backed up, the data should be encrypted when in transit. If business passed this step, hackers can snoop on data. That’s why, a smart encryption plan is key to overall data protection across your network.
  • The 3-2-1 Strategy: The 3-2-1 strategy for backups can be effective to build data protection strategy. It involves three backups located in two locations, such as on-premise and cloud storage locations. Finally, you should produce these backups at least once a day for maximum protection.
  • 24/7 Support: When your network goes down or you suffer data loss, you want a partner that can quickly restore your system from a backup no matter what day or time it is. A 24/7 support team like at Zettagrid Indonesia, will help you to recover the data back. Therefore, enterprise does not have to be panic once it happened.
  • Testing Backups: It’s important you work with a provider that tests the integrity of backups, considering a backup report can let you know if any files failed to transfer or if any corruptions occurred. Therefore, testing your backup solution regularly is important to achieve the effective recovery.
