Here?s a little advice from your colocation experts: Don?t be caught without a safety net. The effects of data loss can range from being mildly annoying to financially devastating. Although it can arise from outside sources such as natural disasters, the large majority of data loss results from human error. To avoid losing valuable company data, we recommend that companies implement several important practices.
Protect the physical safety and performance of your computers by housing them in areas that are clean, dry and away from locations where accidents could easily occur. Electrical surges can also damage computers. Having an un-interrupted power supply may prevent this type of damage, but you?ll also want to account for the possibility of static electricity with surge protectors.
You have probably heard that you should back up your data. This is more difficult to manage when multiple people have access to company files. Administering effective company-wide procedures and conducting regular trainings on computer virus protection can help mitigate unintentional and costly errors.
