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.

And we’ve gotten some great responses so far! Here are a few of our favorites:
#BackupWin: Tested a restore successfully and 2 days later the server crashed. Good thing we had that solid backup tested and ready to go!

#BackupWin: Productions and Backups servers flooded. Offsite Backup Archive survived.

#BackupWin: Moving backups to the cloud with Barracuda MSP saved 3TB of data for one of our customers after a disaster in their building!

#BackupWin:Being able to view deleted items so clients don’t need to know when they lost their documents

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: 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.

#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.
