Why Your Business Needs Server Imaging

Why Your Business Needs Server Imaging

What would you do if your business computer server just died? What would you do if you accidentally

What would you do if your business computer server just died? What would you do if you accidentally deleted important business files? Or if your business was a victim of ransomware? Could you have your servers back up and running again in minutes? Could you retrieve your data?

Well, with Aspect IT’s server imaging service, you can!

What is it?

Simply put, server imaging is a backup and disaster recovery solution rolled into one. Not only does it back up your files, but also your applications and operating system as well. It works by taking an ‘image’ (backup) of your server as often as every 15 minutes, so that it is ready for a fast data restore should it be necessary. 

The Advantages

Server imaging is incredibly easy to set up, you don’t need an external hard drive as all data is saved online via our secure server, so you can have peace of mind that your data is always safe and accessible. This backup strategy also boasts other advantages such as a reduced cost compared to traditional back up methods. 

The Risks Of No Data Backup

Without an appropriate back up strategy, you are putting your business at huge risk. You could lose all your important business documents and files that you’ve spent so much time creating, and time is money. In fact, according to the British Chamber of Commerce, 90% of businesses that lose data from a disaster are forced to close within two years.

A data loss disaster can also affect your business reputation, as you’re at risk of losing your credibility if you misplace important customer data, and you may lose sales if your website is down, for example. In addition to this, data loss can really impact your businesses day to day operations, as you and your team will be solely focused on getting servers back instead of your business.
