- Always have multiple backups in different locations (One locally and one on the cloud is sufficient)
- Think about how often your content changes and that’ll help you decide how often to backup
- Get some form of notification if your backup fails and for specific reason. You don’t want to be left in a situation where you think your backups are running, and when you need them, you don’t have any to choose.
- DON’T IGNORE BACKING UP YOUR DATA – The amount of times I’ve heard the excuse of “Well it’s not my job to backup my server” or “I thought I did one” is unreal. Always have a backup of your most important data
- Just because a backup is on some external media (external hard drive, memory stick) doesn’t mean it’s safe. A memory stick can go corrupt, break, get water damage or similar.
- Think about how quickly you would need to get back online if something was to go down. This will help inform you where to keep your backups
