Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video Backing up data, part of Linux Foundation Cert Prep: Storage Management (Ubuntu).
- [Narrator] To help reduce the chances for data loss,…it's always a good idea to have backups,…but designing and using a backup…isn't a one size fits all kind of thing.…So there's a couple of different approaches…to backing up information that we need to consider.…What's most important to keep in mind…is the strategy and philosophy of backing up information.…We want information to be safe from loss…and that loss can be physical rather than just digital…so it's critical to keep a copy of important information…in a separate physical location than the original data…in case something terrible happens to your office…or data center and damages all of the hardware.…
It's no good to only have a backup…in the same bag as the laptop if the bag gets stolen.…And to guard against digital loss…like accidental erasure or even ransomware,…a backup should also be disconnected from the network…or the internet.…Of course, we'll need to update this backup.…So periodically, we'll need to bring the backup to us…or send the backup away…
Join instructor Scott Simpson, as he shows how to manage and optimize file storage on Ubuntu Linux. First, learn how to create, modify, and mount partitions and filesystems, and manage swap space. Scott then combines these basics into more sophisticated solutions using volume management, and shows how to secure Linux storage and configure disk quotas and backup policies.
