This comprehensive guide discusses various data backup solutions and strategies, their benefits, and how they can help you protect your valuable information from potential threats and disasters.

Local Data Centers:
The Advantage of Australian-based Storage:
Tech Troubleshooters’ managed cloud backup solutions store data in Australian data centers. This ensures compliance with local regulations, especially for businesses that work with government organizations. Storing data locally also provides the advantage of faster access and recovery times.
Limitations of Popular Cloud Services and NAS/RAID Setups
While iCloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive are popular file storage and syncing services, they are not comprehensive backup solutions. They lack end-to-end encryption and don’t provide the same level of data protection as dedicated backup services. Similarly, NAS devices and RAID setups offer redundancy and storage capacity but do not protect against data loss due to accidental deletion, viruses, or file corruption.
The 3-2-1 Backup Strategy: A Recommended Approach
To ensure maximum data protection, it’s essential to follow the 3-2-1 backup strategy. This approach involves keeping at least three copies of your data, stored on two different types of storage media, with one copy stored off-site. Tech Troubleshooters can help you implement this strategy effectively.
