Think back to a few decades ago – there were no smartphones, streaming platforms, or social media. The means of communication were simple: standard television programs, snail-mail, or landline telephones. In today’s world of modern technology, we have a lot more obstacles to jump over such as cybersecurity threats, internet outages, hackers, and so much more. What’s the solution to these problems and who can help? A Data Center!
What is a Data Center?
If you don’t know by now, a data center is a central hub that hosts and protects client’s sensitive files and data in-house. Through SOC and NOC services they have access to your network and can monitor for any potential threats or vulnerabilities. Data centers are well known for not only storing and protecting data, but also for providing additional cloud storage, recovery and backup services, and managed IT services.
Keeping Your Business On Track
There are a multitude of ways that a data center can help keep your business on track. First, you need to establish what your main area of concern is. Is it keeping your network secure? Storing data? Backing up your data in case of an emergency?
Whatever your concerns are, a data center can help keep your business running smoothly and more efficiently. Here’s how:
Recovering and Backing Up Your Data
Having your data backed up in a data center is one of the best precautions you can take. When it comes to sensitive data and files, you don’t want to risk a network failure and losing everything. While this is not very common, it does happen and your business could pay a tremendous amount of money if it happens to you. Having a safe, secure, and dependable data center on your side will ensure you can rest easy knowing all of your data is stored and protected in case of an emergency. At Simple Helix, technicians can check and monitor your backups on a regular basis to ensure there are no errors and everything is working properly.
