Incremental backup software is growing in popularity like crazy. Each day, more and more businesses are using it for its many, many benefits and the typically low cost of utilizing it. However, some people have never even heard of it, or just don’t know how it works. So, here’s a quick breakdown of what you can expect when you ultimately decide to put incremental backup software in place in your business.
First, Your Data is Uploaded to an Off-site Data Center.
When your incremental backup software is activated, the big backup upload begins. All your indicated data begins copying through the Internet to an off-site data center, where it will be kept and secured to ensure your data cannot be compromised. In essence, your entire database is sort of being “cloned,” so if anything irreparable were to happen to your existing database, the healthy off-site “clone” could always replace it.
Next, Every New or Changed File is Uploaded Incrementally.
Once the complete backup transfer is complete, any file you change or create after that backup will also be backed-up on an incremental basis of your choosing. That means much less backup time and data transfer for you. If you decide you want all new or altered files backed-up once a week, once a day, even once an hour, it’s up to you.
Finally, You Can Access or Restore Data from Anywhere.
Remember our “clone” comparison? If your network suddenly – inexplicably – experiences a data loss, that “clone” is here to save the day. Just download some (or all) of the backed-up files, and you’re back to work. Another unique benefit of incremental backup software is that it can also act as a sort of basic cloud computing: if you’re on a business trip, and one night, you really need to work on a file from your office desktop, you can sign into the backup program, download the backed-up file, and you’re off!
