Data Backups

Your data is important to you and to your business. It is absolutely essential to have a reliable backup system in place, but understanding and implementing a reliable backup system can seem like a daunting task.

There are several components to a quality data backup system.

Backup Software

There are so many options in backup software that it can be hard to choose the right one. The first thing to know is that price means nothing. Sometimes the most expensive choice is not the best fit. Often times a free software solution works best. You have to consider what is being backed up and understand the choices. We help you do that.

Automatic Backups

Backups need to happen automatically on a schedule that makes sense to your business. Preactive IT Solutions can automate backups for you whether they run once per week or three times per day.

Offsite Backups

Backing up your data is not enough. What happens if your backup drives are stolen or destroyed by fire. You must be sure your data is safe by keeping a recent copy of your backups offsite. We can design a backup disk rotation plan for you or even setup automated, offsite backups without you ever carrying a hard drive out of the office again.
