Backups are the single most important piece of your business continuity and disaster recovery planning. Your business backup plan should include these essential operations:
- Live mirroring of physical storage to mitigate data loss caused by hardware failure using a Redundant Array of Independent Disks on a RAID controller or a software mirror across independent disks.
- Local versioned backups to mitigate data loss caused by corruption. There are several ways to configure local backups with revisions, and these should be your go to backups for restore from data corruption.
- Disaster recovery backups that are stored physically outside of the business / off-site with defined recovery point and recovery time objectives (RPO and RTO). These backups need to be tested regularly and verified.
