In any modern company, accidents happen. Hard drives become corrupted, viruses wipe out software, files get lost. Backup solutions create copies on local drives or media, disk imaging software creates a snapshot of your entire drive, and online backup services automate uploading your data to secure off-site storage. According to the IT Central Station community, the most important criteria for choosing a backup solution include short backup windows, ease-of-recovery, storage consent, and role-based access management. Other key features include having a high level of recovery options, flexibility to choose storage media based on corporate needs, and the ability to see the average of daily or weekly changes in the data.
