Backup is often to unsung hero of the IT channel. When data backup goes right, your customers barely notice that there was a problem. All they know is that you kept them up and running. They don't realize that you and your team just averted a major disaster without breaking a sweat.
That's why we invited our MSP partners to share their favorite #backupwin on Twitter to help celebrate World Backup Day, which is coming up on March 31.
#BackupWin: Tested a restore successfully and 2 days later the server crashed. Good thing we had that solid backup tested and ready to go!— SystemHalt (@derrjerr) March 2, 2018
#BackupWin: Productions and Backups servers flooded. Offsite Backup Archive survived.— Taylor (@Viewtwittags) March 4, 2018
#BackupWin: Moving backups to the cloud with Barracuda MSP saved 3TB of data for one of our customers after a disaster in their building!— CorneliousJD (@CorneliousJD) March 9, 2018
Some of you have also shared solid advice about how to help guarantee a #backupwin the next time you need to do a restore for a customer.
#BackupWin:Being able to view deleted items so clients don't need to know when they lost their documents— Steve (@acedonkey22) March 14, 2018
#BackupWin: For devices that have constant file changes, setup backups more often than once a day and don't rely on shadow copy. Even as quick as every 15 minutes to ensure limited impact if data goes missing / corrupt.— TechworksCable (@TechworksCable) March 7, 2018
#BackupWin: The essential elements of backing up are multiple copies and multiple sites--the first because any media can go bad, and the second because you don't want to lose your backup along with your PC.— El Cuero (@Escubero) March 13, 2018
Join the conversation by sharing your favorite #backupwin on Twitter. We know every MSP has had those moments when you get to save the day and feel like a superhero because you had the right backup and disaster recover plan in place for a client. Let's celebrate those wins together!
