Data Backups - Information & Techniques

Important files are accidentally deleted all the time; mission-critical data can become corrupt; natural disasters can leave your office in ruin. A solid backup plan is the only method of recovering from any data loss.

Data backups are an important aspect of any business strategy and planning. The data contained within your office computer system is worth magnitudes more than the computers or the cost associated with backing-up.

Consider the costs involved with rebuilding your datafiles from scratch; the labour required to literally rekey data is one aspect, the other is the problems in continuing to trade during this time.

The costs involved with making an accurate, comprehensive data backup is minimal compared to possible costs and losses.

Some industries have legislated requirements under various Acts to complete a daily data backup and take that backup offsite. The offsite requirement allows for the worst possible disasters such as the office burns to the ground or floods.

Image arriving at work and finding a charred hole instead of the office, make a quick evaluation on the effect on your business. If you cannot be absolutely certain that an accurate and current copy of your critical datafiles (accounting, word, email, excel, etc) is available, rectify the situation today.

The main aspects to consider when implementing the type of data backup appropriate to your operation are covered within.


Maintenance - Do I Really Need It?

The BME/Okuma Top Fuel Team preparing their dragster for its 3rd qualifying run at the '08 Winternationals. (http://www.bmeltd.com/dragster.htm)You don’t need to be an Astronaut to marvel at the achievements of man landing on the moon. Similarly, you don’t need to be a "Car enthusiast" to marvel at the achievements of Drag Car Racing.Whether you are a car enthusiast or not, I recommend that at least once in their life time, everyone should experience a Drag Car Race in action.
Yes I’m talking about the long narrow vehicles with large tyres on the back and small tyres in front. These monsters Jump from 0km/hr to 500km/hr in less than 5 seconds! The roar of the engine shakes the ground as if the world is ending!.. Leaving you wondering, what is left of the little man strapped inside this machine.

After witnessing this spectacle, I noticed a peculiar thing. Officials were running down the drag strip picking up nuts and bolts. These parts  had become victim to the drag car’s violent journey into the distance. I soon learned that this is a common occurrence. The extent of damage is so great that after each pass, a Top Fuel drag car has to have its engine stripped down and rebuilt ready for its next run.

I thought to myself, what fantastic dedication to ensuring maximum performance every time.

Keeping a machine in good running order requires routine maintenance. Be it your lawnmower, your car, or even your body. Neglecting this maintenance always results in reduced performance and eventually death. How much time and money you invest on maintenance depends on how much your asset means to you. Computers are no different, although it is common place to over look the need for computer maintenance. Perhaps you have noticed that your computer seems significantly slower than the day you first bought it?

This article describes some common computer failures and what you can do to prevent them.


Top 5 things to know when buying a new PC!

Are you looking to buy a new computer, but are a little unsure of what you should get? These days it seems everyone (including your local supermarket) can sell you one, and for a good price too....or so it would seem.

Buying a computer can be compared to buying a car, where you have a purpose and you need a vehicle to suit. It wouldn't make much sense to buy a sports car to take your family of 5 to the beach. Sure, it is possible, but is it practical?  Herein lies the problem when investing in a new computer. It is often a minefield feature packed with gigabytes and megabytes, boasting 64 bits and gigahertz pieces, with a dual this and quad core that on top.

So when none of this makes sense and it's unclear what will meet your purpose, is the safest bet to buy the cheapest computer on offer? Read on and discover some basic tricks to knowing what you are buying before making the all important computer purchase.
