It’s highly irritating if you experience a sudden shut down in the midst of important work on your computer system. Computers or laptops are our virtual world and has all your important data. Anyone would freak out if this happens. The situation of CEOs and CFOs who handle critical information and work on important confidential documents cannot be even imagined after losing such precious data.
Users understand the role of managed service providers who ensure that data is backed-up and the backup data is fully encrypted to protect it from disgruntled employees, added hackers, and snooping competitors. Apart from the various services they offer, data backup and recovery is a crucial task. A hosting company worth partnering makes all critical arrangements for saving your precious data. So, this decision is very critical and ignoring the services of a managed IT support service provider could prove disastrous to businesses.
Furthermore, as a business professional, you must be aware of the level of backup and what is the recovery mode used by the host. Below are some basic things you must know to ensure data backup and recovery:
A backup takes place when a snapshot is taken of the data of each tier in the EBS (elastic book system) of the cloud. This snapshot is stored while still being encrypted in a cloud section that makes it accessible in all availability zones. Besides this, the backup service makes encrypted copies of your website periodically and distributes them across all the available zones of the cloud. It is a daily process and the data is retained for as long as you want it to.
Here are 5 disaster recovery incidences that trigger an action when recovery issues arise within the cloud:
- Failure of data volumes or application servers in a solution tier
- Failure of a data volume or individual application server
- Failure of the elastic load balancer (ELB)
- Failure of entire cloud region
- Failure of the complete availability zone
