The realities of data loss and its crippling effect on businesses:

  • Every week 140,000 hard drives will crash in the United States - source Google Labs
  • 34% of companies fail to test their tape backups, and of those that do, 77% have found tape back-up failures - source Boston Computing Ntwk
  • 97% of data loss is not caused by a natural disaster - source Protect Data
  • Only 6% of companies suffering from a catastrophic data loss survive, while 43% never reopen and 51% close within two years source University of Texas Research
  • Half of all small and midsize businesses will go out of business within three years if they can’t recover their data in 24 hours - source Gartner Group
  • The survival rate for companies without a disaster recovery plan is less than 10% – source Touche Ross Study

What small to medium businesses are currently doing as far as data backup

  • 15% do absolutely nothing  - Perilously living on the edge
  • 58% do onsite local backup  - No disaster protection, Very inconsistent
  • 16% do tape/disk swap – highly error prone, media failures, staff dependent
  • 11% do online storage – Many have found the per GB fees too expensive

Where does your company fit as far as your current handling of data ?

How can we help you to better protect your business?   It all starts with you, the client, addressing three critical questions:

  • What type of data needs to be backed up
  • Where the data will be backed up – just locally or local and off-site
