We’ve talked about this before, but it bears repeating: data loss is expensive. Not only does it cost money, but it also costs time and human suffering. And yes, in some cases, it costs people their businesses. You just can’t risk it.
So what causes data loss? Well, as it turns out, lots of different factors contribute to data loss. Human error, software corruption, computer viruses, theft, and property destruction all account for episodes of data loss. And while all of these are formidable, the most common cause of data loss is simple hardware failure.
If you’re relying on one piece of hardware, then you’re risking everything on the sound, continuous workings of one machine—quite a gamble by anyone’s standards.
If you’re relying on multiple machines that are all housed in the same place, then you’re susceptible to weather or other environmental hazards that may pop up, sometimes at just a moment’s notice.
When you use SIO, however, you get offsite, cloud protection that eliminates the stress of wondering whether or not your own hardware will work. Plus, you avoid the potentially devastating cost of replacing your own downed IT center. Some businesses are IT companies. The rest are best served by a reliable IT partner like SIO.
