All companies need to consider their strategy for data backup because data is the heart of the enterprise, it’s crucial for you to protect it. And to protect your organization’s data, you need to implement a data backup and recovery plan. Backing up files can protect against accidental loss of user data, database corruption, hardware failures, and even natural disasters. It’s your job as an administrator to make sure that backups are performed and that backup tapes are stored in a secure location.

Backup of a company’s application data is critical in case of a massive system failure, or in case individual files need to be restored. There various types of backup media which can be used including Tape, Cloud Backup, DVD, etc.

An adequate backup system must include the following elements:

  • Enough tapes for complete backups to occur on a predefined rotation
  • Regular testing of the system and media to ensure that restoration is possible
  • A person that is responsible to execute the backup plan on an on-going basis
  • The backup usually needs to occur when processing is not taking place (off hours)
  • A logical tape rotation schedule must be established and followed
  • Tapes need to be rotated to a secure location off site in case of disaster or theft
  • A calendar/log must be maintained to schedule tapes and record results

It is always necessary to take back up of your ERP Database. The Key advantage of database backup is that in case if you lose your critical business data or financial data due to Natural Disasters, Hardware & System Malfunctions or Computer viruses and malware. Then you can easily restore database backup from tap drives, cloud storage or from DB recovery server.
