If you’re in business for the long-term, you’ve got to think long-term. Make sure your backups go far enough to get back anything you might need.
Monthly backups are a default with CloudServer, our cloud hosting service. That means we keep a copy of your file and system backups for every month you’re with us.
Not just this month. Not just last month. Not just every month this year. No, it’s all of those – plus all the other months you’ve been backing up with us.
That’s really handy if you need to restore an old version of a file from years ago. Or resurrect the mailbox of a former employee. Find that document that sat on your desktop for only short time last year. Or comply with long-term record-keeping legislation.
We back up daily, then weekly, then monthly – and we keep those monthly backups permanently
- First, we back up daily. We keep these for a week.
- Then, we back up weekly. We keep these for a month.
- Finally, we back up monthly. And those are kept forever.
Monthly backups in action: resurrecting data from 3+ years ago
Recently, a client needed to restore data as it was in May 2014. 1178 days ago.
A lot of backup providers will only take you back a year, a month – even a week. You couldn’t get May 2016, let alone May 2014.
But because they’re with us, that data came back with ease. It was as if they only created it today!
Actual time travel might not be possible, but with CloudServer, you’ll have no trouble revisiting your past files, emails and data.
Monthly backups aren’t a default with all providers – so choose carefully
Thinking about backups? Good move. They’re important.
But make sure you get the right kind of backup for you. If you’re in business for the long-term, you’ve got to think long-term. So that means making sure those backups can take you back to any point in your history.
A week, a month, a year – those are good starts. But for true reliability, you need to go back further than that. And that’s what you’ll get with CommArc. Not to mention:
