Proven Data Backup Solutions from SIO

People back up files in many different ways. The trouble with most of the methods, however, is that they only provide partial backup or partial protection at any one given moment.

For example, some people trust themselves to back up files manually, but this is only as reliable as the times it actually happens and doesn't end up forgotten among a million other business tasks.

Some people actually perform their backups on time, but then leave them susceptible to damage by hardware failure, natural disaster, or some type of human mistake or crime.

Meaningful Disaster Recovery Solutions

The networking and communications advancements in business have been pushed forward by leaps and bounds during the Internet age. What used to take minutes, hours, or days can now be accomplished in seconds thanks to technology.

As a result, business leans pretty hard on all available digital communication tools. Since time is money, making use of time-saving technology translates to quicker sales, faster communication, improved turnaround times, and a better overall bottom line.

Our New Website: What's Different & What's the Same

When it comes to technology, change is the name of the game. Positive change is what drives new technology advancements, and being at the forefront of these changes makes for an interesting occupation and industry.

It also helps us serve our customers better. At SIO, our actions are based on the needs of our customers. And each time we make changes or suggest new services, it's in response to customer needs in one shape or form.

Ensuring Proper Data Backup

The data you accumulate while doing business is vital for your present (as well as your future) initiatives. Customer data informs what services you offer and what expansions you make, while internal data reveals how efficient and effective your overall company is being run.

Deciding how to deal with data can be daunting, however. Not only does it need to be stored safely, it also needs to be readily available so that it can be used in all the different ways your business needs to use it.

Patch Management Failure Linked to Equifax Breach

With the recent news of a security breach at Equifax, some much-needed attention has been given to the idea of IT security. With so much sensitive information being stored digitally, everyone has a stake in keeping that info properly secure.

And when you consider the seriousness of Equifax's responsibility, paired with the means with which it has at its disposal to keep information safe, it really underscores the fact that everyone is vulnerable. Today, it's Equifax. Tomorrow, who's next?

Utilizing Professional IT Support

When starting a new venture, it is important to consider all of the elements that will come together to make it a success. Unfortunately, people often overlook the importance of professional IT support until they encounter a problem.

Though it is obviously much easier to avoid a problem than it is to troubleshoot the aftermath of an IT disaster, SIO can help with either scenario. Our expertise extends to all things IT and beyond, which makes us a perfect technology partner.

Where Data Goes When Floods Occur

With loss of life in the dozens and cars and houses being destroyed by the thousands, the impact from Hurricane Harvey has been felt throughout Houston and its surrounding areas. And the damage does not stop there.

Tech companies have been subject to some of the same issues and annihilation. Obviously, computers and water do not mix well, so damage has been extensive to those caught within the flood plain.

Hurricane Harvey Perspective from Drone Footage

Another way that drones are making an impact on our society is displayed during times of crisis. What once took news crew helicopters can now be accomplished by single individuals with a willingness to report.

For example, during the Hurricane Harvey storm, we have seen drone video go up on YouTube and other social media outlets where people across the world can see first-hand images of the devastation as it develops.

Thoughts on the Eclipse and Uptime

Yesterday, the solar eclipse gave most everyone around here a chance to pause and consider some things they often take for granted. With the excitement surrounding the eclipse, it was the perfect time to think about the sun, the moon, and our planet earth.

And with widespread media coverage of the event, we all heard a lot of talk about the path of totality, which was the banded area of the United States where the sun was actually covered completely by the moon for a couple of minutes. Really neat stuff.

Help Your Company Communicate Better

Breakdowns in communication can be an Achilles heel for any venture. Unless you are part of a one-person operation, it is critical to ensure that communication flows freely and efficiently amongst all team members.

One of the ways we at SIO help our customers is by facilitating better communication for them across the board. With a robust email platform, not only is email better, but calendars, notes, and contacts are organized better, too.

Store It Offsite is hands down the best IT support services group in Lexington. A few years ago, my company was looking to overhaul its current backup system. While I looked at various online services, the group that stood out the most to me was Store It Offsite. Their pricing structure is very competitive, but being local took them over the top for me. Three years down the road now after making the decision to use Store It Offsite, I could not be happier with my decision to do so. Their service has been second to none, support is prompt and on task, and customer service is impeccable. Our rep is outstanding at listening to what a client's needs are, putting together cost effective proposals, and provide a quality of service beyond what other IT support firms can do. The bottom line is this, if you need cloud server services, off site data backup, or simply hardware supply, give Store It Offsite an opportunity to earn your business. Contact Leslie and setup an introductory meeting. I promise, you and your company will not be disappointed.
