Cloud Backup FAQ

We recommend that you backup more than you need as some data may be overlooked. You can always remove files later from your backups but you cannot retrieve data you never backed up.  Perform full image backups and incremental backups.

At a minimum, Full Spectrum Computer Services recommends to plan your existing data size x 3 as your required storage.  Remember you will have multiple copies of the same data and full images for servers.  Depending on how often your backups run and what level of multi-version backups is required for your business, storage requirements vary. The more storage space available the better.

There are several ways to check the status of your backup.  Depending on your backup solution, reporting on a daily basis can be emailed to an assigned backup operator.  If your backup solution offers anytime-anywhere access, check your backup status by logging on to the website or by using your mobile device. Check backup solutions frequently, they do fail from time to time.

How often do you update your data?  Full Spectrum Computer Services recommends to do daily backups at a minimum.  Consider doing full image monthly backups of your servers.  Workstations backups on a daily basis when necessary as well.

Typically, data is encrypted with the highest encryption technology available and password protected for double protection.  Keep this information safe as you will need it to restore the data when the time comes.

Monitor. Monitor. Monitor.
The most common fault we find with backups is that end users assume backups are taking place but never bother to check.  Data corruption or data loss can strike at any time.  Be proactive and do check the status of your backups.  Often, end users place responsibility on the least qualified person to monitor and troubleshoot the backups.  Have a professional help you plan your data backup and disaster recovery in a way that best works for your business.  Full Spectrum Computer Services offers planning, monitoring and reporting services for your business.  Always test your backup system to recover files from time to time.
