In Savannah, GA, there are old federal buildings, such as the historic Davenport Museum, and Georgian houses like The Olde Pink House. And there's the cotton exchange, a Romanesque-style building, in the historical area of Savannah. Let's not forget the classic McArchitecture style we have all come to know and love. There are over 300 years of buildings in the area and all lovingly restored.
Bringing Back Something That's Lost
Restoration is an incredible thing to bring back something that was lost. When it comes to data, restoration can be a lifesaver but you need to be prepared. Just like with buildings, you need to create something with a strong foundation in the first place, so ultimately you're left with something to recover rather than just a pile of junk.
What's the Best Way to Backup Your Data?
There are lots of ways to backup your data. I'm often asked what's the best option, but to be honest, it varies from person to person and from business to business. For one client, just having a USB stick with a few files in it might be fine. For another client, we might be discussing something like bare metal recovery with daily incremental backups at an off-site centre.
But no matter what your needs are, there's one thing I can tell everyone: act now! The more prepared you are, the less damage that is done when you lose your data. Back up, be organised, and build systems and strong foundations so your data and your legacy can be around for years to come.
