Data Recovery and Backup Services for San Jose & Silicon Valley Business
For owners and executives of small and medium-sized companies, redundancy is mostly considered waste. Profits are hard enough to come by without repeatedly completing tasks more than once. When considering the status of your data however, redundancy is a business' best friend. Data redundancy basically means that the same data is stored in multiple locations, that way no matter what happens, a copy is always available. That's the primary function of a BDR.
The Business Case for Backing Up Data
Backing up data isn’t simply a necessity for large companies, it is an essential business process for companies of all sizes operating in today’s digital environment. It is crucial for protecting business continuity in the event of a data loss, a security breach, or a natural disaster.
The stark reality is that the financial loss in the event of a data breach in 2019 is $3.9 million. While this figure depends upon the country the business is located and the industry in which it operates, the average range of financial loss is between $1.25 million to $8.19 million.[i] For operators of small and mid-sized businesses, this is often financially devastating.

What is BDR?
Backup and Disaster Recovery, or BDR, equipment automatically backs up your data and stores it in an offsite cloud. Not only does the cloud maintain data that's up-to-date, but it also makes that data accessible at all times, even in the event of a major emergency or disaster.

The Importance of Protecting Your Business During Disaster Recovery
The best way to avoid this tremendous financial loss is to prevent it. Having your data backed-up is part of a larger digital security plan that involves proactive network and device security updates.
But even with this in place, some breaches or data losses are unavoidable, such as during a fire or a natural disaster. There’s no way to predict when or how you might lose your data, so it’s best to always be prepared. It’s worth it, both in financial terms and for the peace of mind it can provide.
When combined with other loss-prevention strategies - such as adequate encryption and having an incident response team – having your data backed up can reduce the cost of a breach by as much as $720,000.i

What is the Best Data Redundancy and Disaster Recovery Solution?
The best solution for your company is the one that will best meet its needs. In terms of data backup and disaster recovery, this poses a unique challenge for small and mid-sized companies. These organizations often don’t have the budget that large companies and enterprises do, which means they don’t have a robust IT department.
In some small businesses, it’s the owner who is solely responsible for IT functions and while they are often the expert in their industry, rarely do owners possess the skills and knowledge to adequately prepare for a massive data loss.
For many of these companies, an affordable managed solution is going to be their best option for providing the robust security, backup, and disaster recovery functions that are necessary to prevent a loss or mitigate the fallout from an unavoidable loss.
The benefits in using a managed solution are many, and include:
- Lower Costs: You don’t have the expenses associated with building and maintaining your own backup system.
- Access to Experts: Managed service providers have experts who are up-to-date on the latest security and storage technologies, providing you with peace of mind in knowing your data is in expert hands.
- Layers of Backup: Managed service providers can work with you to provide optimal backup solutions, meaning that you can have backup both on-premise and externally (on a physical device or the cloud).
- Focus on Your Business: Without having to worry about your data, you can focus on what you know and love doing: running and growing your business.
According to Gartner, a technology research center, 43% of companies that sustain some kind of major data loss are immediately ruined by this data-loss disaster, with another 51% subsequently closing their doors within two years from the disaster. That's why its so important to be prepared.
