Have you ever tested your backups?

Have you ever made backups of your data? I'm pretty sure you did! Have you ever tested these backups? I'm pretty sure you didn't!

In a company, the IT department is responsible for making backups of their environment. This often happens on tapes which have to be stored somewhere (physically). A lot of time and money is invested in setting up a good backup and recovery plan. But all too often the testing is the missing step in making backups. Without testing, there isn’t any assurance that the backup will actually work!

A Backup and Recovery Test (BRT) is the perfect answer towards a successful Disaster Recovery, using the customer’s data and EASI’s infrastructure. Because, what’s the point of having a back-up that can’t be restored?

Next week, my colleague Guy will give a nice example of a customer case showing the importance of a BRT.
