Media backup in El Paso plays a role in disaster recovery plans

Commercial Records Center provides local secure storage for media backup

Backing up data to physical assets such as external hard drives is the first step toward minimizing the risk of information loss. Commercial Records Center completes the loop by providing secure storage for media backup in El Paso.

Commercial Records Center, which also provides hard drive destruction service in El Paso, is a specialist in media backup and secure document storage. Its facility features a temperature-controlled vault with secure, controlled access, FM 200 fire suppression, and a three-hour fire-rated door.

Corporate IT professionals typically leverage backup rotation strategies that involve multiple hard drives, tapes, CDs or other physical media. The number of storage devices can quickly create a space issue when held in-house, particularly in cases where organizations back up daily.

Media backup as part of an overall data protection strategy

While many organizations perform media backup on a daily basis, choosing a weekly or even monthly backup schedule might be more appropriate for your situation. Implementing a backup rotation schedule is an important step in creating what, in essence, is an insurance policy for your data.

“The main reason we offer media backup in El Paso is to help our customers secure their data off-site in the event something happens at their primary location,” explains Blanca Armendariz, Account Rep at Commercial Records Center. “Disaster recovery is much easier to accomplish when your data is in a secure location off-site.”

Disaster recovery kits can include items such as payroll information, software licenses, lists of vendors and other information that helps an organization resume regular operations as quickly as possible following a worst-case scenario. Media backup plays an integral role in the recovery process.
