Backup video series: How often you should back up data

Blog Posts

Note: This is the fifth in a 12-part data backup video series by Online Tech Senior Product Architect Steve Aiello. View the entire backup video series.

Just as there are options when considering where to back up data (to disk, to tape, locally, off-site), there are also fluid “when” answers  when building a strong data backup plan.

In today’s video, Aiello uses a mortgage company and a highly-transactional ecommerce business as examples to show that the answer to the question “how often should you back up data?” can vary.

Rules surrounding how frequently to back up depend on:

  • Sensitivity of data
  • Frequency of change
  • Volume of change

This video series will continue throughout February. Check back for new entries every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Up next: “What are the different ways to restore data?”
