Fast Backups, Doesn’t take as long and an image backup, tends to be cheaper.
You only get the files and folders not the configuration of the workstation or the server. Therefore, you need to setup a new one and restore the file and reinstall applications.
Image based backups are total system copies. These types of backups allow you to restore computers fully back to their operating condition at the time of backup. This type of backup is great because you capture the configuration of applications and the computer in addition to the files and folders.
Full image backups restore the data, configuration, and applications. No need to setup something new.
Take a long time, take up a lot of space, can be costly.
With your new found knowledge on backups let’s talk about business requirements. Typically, any business has an acceptable amount of downtime, this downtime conveys a few things about your backup strategy. If the business can only allow four hours of down time, being able to recover from a backup within that window is the target around which to build a backup strategy.
Also, testing backups on a regular basis to make sure they are valid and not corrupt should be a consistent security check. Another common scenario is to make sure backups are not located in just one spot in case of fire or theft.
All-in-all remember, backups are a key part to any businesses IT and should be budgeted for with labor and materials in mind.
