Australia floods and the importance of offsite backup

Once again mother nature has shown what she can do with a devastating flood this week in Australia. For businesses utilising online backup services that can be safe in the knowlegde that their data is secured offsite.

Unfortunately it has been reported that hundreds of homes and businesses in the region have lost irreplaceable emails, documents, photos and other files from the flood.

Even if you backup to tape, disk or USB stick – ensure that this is stored offsite in an alternative location. Should the worst happen you will have a backup. Of course, with BackupVault Online Backup your backups are automatically saved to our servers offsite. Our backups are also backed up every 30 minutes too!
