Backup and Business Continuity

A backup strategy involves creating and maintaining essential copies of data to protect critical information in the event of data loss or damage. This information and data is restored in case of critical incidents that cause a system outage. An effective backup strategy ensures business continuity, minimizes downtime and can protect against data loss.

Backup policies apply to all storage providers and LucidLink recommends customers follow best practices in line with their business continuity requirements. 

The following articles provide information on backup strategy development and tools that can be used to meet backup policy objectives.  Please note that as LucidLink Filespaces present to the operating system as a local disk, any preferred backup software can be used.  The following articles are provided as examples only.
