April 15th General Meeting

Backup Options and Strategies

Backup Options and Strategies

Back up, so you can get back up

You do remember the 2nd Commandment from last month’s presentation, don’t you?

This month, you’re gonna find out ways to chose different options and strategies for your situation. Having a consistently-executed plan of regular backups is very important. It is not a question of if you will need it, only when.

We will be discussing types of backup media, keeping legacy backups up to date, hardware choices, and the different forms of backups. Included will be: local backups, file-by-file backups, incremental backups, data-only backups, history backups, full backups, clone backups, offsite backups, cloud backups, and backup services. Last but not least, we will cover backup security. Q & A discussion will be included; the only dumb question is one not asked!
