Backup and Disaster Recovery
On-site Backup Solutions
On-site backup consists of making duplicate copies of your data on your network. This is very important in restoring files after corruption or deletion. This is very different than off-site backup and should not be used in place of but rather in tandem with an off-site solution.
Off-site Backup Solutions
Making duplicate copies of files in a different geographic location such as in another building or at a cloud storage facility on the Internet is called "off-site data protection.” Off-site backup is required for disaster recovery as well as to prevent damage from potential virus or malware related data loss.
