Data loss and the need for off-site data storage can happen very quickly and with very little warning. Damage to files can happen from mistakes, natural disasters, stolen property, and even disgruntled employees deleting everything in their path on the way out the door. Most New York business owners can’t afford to reconstruct their critical information and files. At Alarms R Us, we believe that off-site data storage is the fastest way to protect your data and to restore existing information.
Off-site data storage can be achieved in a number of ways. The most basic approach is as follows:
- Make an electronic copy of every sensitive hard drive used by a business.
- Keep the secondary storage device in a different physical location.
Unfortunately, this approach doesn’t work well on a regular basis because someone has to be responsible for making copies, connecting and disconnecting the backup drives, and identifying which files to copy. That process can take time and a lot of effort.
The second, simpler approach to off-site data storage uses the power of the Internet to connect and duplicate files to a secure storage center. Every time a backup is initiated or scheduled, the system examines the files for any changes and copies the latest version once a preliminary set is made. In essence, the new backup becomes a “mirror” of the original, working file.
Many small NYC businesses rely on professional off-site data storage services to manage such data so that it can be protected as well as retrieved electronically after a loss. The retrieval process is as simple as downloading and restoring the files in the original structure to a new computer.

With today’s technology, you can take powerful and simple steps to ensure ongoing operations and minimal loss.
