Backing up your data is one of the most crucial steps of the data asset management process. This ensures that your digital files are not only safe in one location, but in multiple locations in case something happens. Can you backup to offsite storage? In this video, Kevin Ames discusses why you need offsite storage.
- Offsite storage is an important component…of the backup strategy.…It protects the working volume and its backup onsite…from disaster.…Let's take a look at what can go into a backup strategy.…The backup can be as simple as a single hard drive.…If you have protected storage for your working drive,…you could have just a single drive as its backup…and another single drive offsite.…
Ideally, you'd have protected storage in all three.…Sometimes, financially, that's not possible.…When you move from single drives to protected storage,…remember we're talking either a RAID 1,…which is a mirrored storage, or a RAID 5.…Offsite backup can also be as simple as taking…a hard drive copy and driving it to a safe location.…It could be a safe deposit box in a bank,…it could be your parent's house,…it could be a friend's house.…
Just someplace that's not located really close…to your working studio environment.…It's also possible to have an internet connected device,…like a RAID 5 or a RAID 1, that backs up over the internet.…The strategy there is you make the main copy locally,…
