I was shocked to read that 58% of backups fail!
Because I stay up-to-date on developments in the world of computer security, it takes a lot to shock me. Computer breaches and ransomware attacks are in the tech news every day.
But when I read about a 2021 study by Veeam Software, a major provider of enterprise backups, that found 58% of all backups fail, wow!
The study surveyed 3,000 C-level executives. They reported eyebrow-raising statistics in addition the the backup failure rate:
- 95% experienced unexpected data outages
- 14% of all data is not backed up
- 25% of all servers experienced at least one unexpected failure
Given these statistics, everyone would be well-advised to examine and test their backup and recovery strategies.
Since no backup system is 100% perfect, it makes sense to tilt the odds of a successful recovery in your favor. Implement at least two independent, full backup systems.
Redundancy is exactly what our service, DoubleBackup, delivers. Run your regular full backups. And also run a DoubleBackup to our enterprise data centers.
