Not all backup products are created equal. As a matter of fact, most are not equal at all. Do you know the difference between backup, disaster recovery and business continuity?

Too often I hear these terms, along with “the cloud” used interchangeably, but they shouldn’t be confused.  They are each unique pieces of an all too important bigger picture, and in order for anyone to be able to plan accordingly it is imperative that you know how they differ.

Having your files in the cloud does not constitute having a backup. Having a backup does not mean you have a disaster recovery plan and, as you can guess, having a disaster recovery plan is not necessarily a business continuity plan.
The Atmos gas leak here in Georgetown, Texas has had 61 businesses evacuated from their workplace since February 21st, with no official date as to when they can return to their offices.

In this example, any business with a true business continuity plan would be just fine. Would you?

If you own a business and you don’t understand how these 3 terms are different, then we need to have a conversation today!
