Now let’s talk about BACKUP
The best backup architecture solution is to proceed with the 3-2-1 Backup Strategy.
What is a 3-2-1 Backup Strategy?
A 3-2-1 strategy means having at least 3 total copies of your data, 2 of which are local but on different storage devices. And 1 copy in the CLOUD.
Why 2 onsite and 1 offsite?
Whether you are interested in backing up a PC, MAC, TABLET or a SMARTPHONE an onsite backup is a simple way of having quick access to your data should anything happen to your computer. Having an onsite backup is a basic step, but having an offsite backup is a key component in having a complete backup strategy.
Is 3-2-1 Perfect?
There is no such thing as a perfect backup system, but the 3-2-1 approach is a great recovery plan for anyone. Even the United States Government recommends this approach.
In a 2012 paper for US-CERT (United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team), Carnegie Mellon recommended the 3-2-1 method in their publication titled: Data Backup Options.

Backing Up Is Like Investing!
The 3-2-1 plan is a requirement in getting your files backed up. If you view your files as your investment capital, think of how much you have invested to create these files. Are you ready to lose it all. Avoid being exposed to loose your files.
A local backup and an offsite backup gives you more options for backup recovery. That’s why Logitek recommends starting with a 3-2-1 approach. For more information about different backup methods and which might work well for you, please contact us at Logitek Cloud
