Data is the new oil for any enterprise, and it is the driving force behind every Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) success. The failure to protect your business-critical data can turn out to be a significant setback and pull down the business trajectory
From establishing business strategies, billing and invoices, employee and client databases, to daily expenses, SMEs cannot think of functioning without data security. Why risk the loss of this pivotal data? Why not establish robust mechanisms to keep control over your data at all times? In this blog, let’s look at the core concepts of Data Backup, High Availability and Disaster Recovery. These can be the game-changers to run your business without any profound hiccups and let downs.
Importance of Backing up Business Data(Data Backup)
Despite the drastic enhancements in enterprise digitization, a huge chunk of SMEs still struggles to manage their data. A fire incident at the local data centre, a flood, or a cyber-attack is all that it takes to disrupt your business for months.
You can easily eliminate these problematic situations by leveraging Cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host your precious enterprise data and software applications. Data redundancy is employed on Cloud i.e. your data is backed up on servers located at geographically distant locations.
Any natural disaster or cyber-attack on one of them is no longer a major threat as another copy of your data is safely stored in another server. Even if some of the computing infrastructure fails due to any reason, the High Availability setup on Cloud ensures business continuity.
The three essential components of a Highly Available system are: 1.Redundancy – An alternate infrastructure component is readily available in case of failures.
2.Monitoring – The system immediately detects an anomaly as soon as an infrastructure component misbehaves.
3.Failover – The alternate component takes over from the problematic one detected as part of monitoring in minimal time.

Why Disaster Recovery (DR) Plan and Implementation Matters?
To remain in the race, every SME must have a DR plan as part of their IT infrastructure. You can never predict when mishaps can occur at your on-premise datacentres. DR planning and implementation becomes simple and effective once you adopt Cloud modernization.
Disaster Recovery and Data backup go hand-in-hand. A sudden failover strategy is applied when any forms of disaster strike your IT systems. Cloud platforms like AWS give you the added advantage of automating the DR process with minimal manual interventions. Your enterprise IT system is disaster-resistant and operationally efficient at the same time.
As SME stakeholders, you are inviting serious trouble if you do not plan and invest in Data Backup and Disaster Recovery Strategy as part of your IT systems. Being a certified partner of AWS, NITS Informatics is dedicated to lending you a helping hand in giving you comprehensive protection of your critical data and application portfolio.
