For most of us, backup is a familiar thought or in a better case, a task that we plan on doing "one day". The simple fact is that most of us don't have a proper backup, this is true for many businesses. For personal use, we have photos that we collect for years, music, videos and other memories. For business, losing business-related data can result in long-term damages and loss of revenue.
