In this day and age we all know how important the information or data is that we keep for our business and ourselves. Take a look at some scenarios showing how easy it is for information or data to be lost.
A senior manager who is on his way to present to the board leaves his laptop at LA airport, never to be seen again. No backups were kept of the emails, data or files on that machine.
It took months to
get a small amount of his data back from various emails he had sent to clients over the last 12-24 months, not to mention the presentation he was working on for the trip also lost.
A student studying for his final exams had all of his work and study notes on a laptop. The hard drive failed and no data could be recovered for less than $1800 (physical Hard Drive recovery).
His HSC was about to begin, no backups, no data....
A medium sized business has files saved on local machines, a file server and a network storage device. These systems contain key financial and marketing information for the business. A fire sweeps through the building and destroys all paper files and computer systems. In some cases you may be able to save this data from disks, but the water used in trying to put out the fire completely ruins any chance of data recovery.
Think of all the digital photos and music that you may have on your computer, but have no backup, just like the photos on your walls or CDs in your cabinet these will also be destroyed.
If you have a fire/theft at home, can these irreplaceable memories and documents be replaced easily?
These scenarios may not have been able to be avoided, but the end result could have been very different.
If the individuals and companies in these scenarios were using DSG Online all of their data could have been retrieved immediately.
