In the current series of IT Coach for Business Leaders, we are discussing the topic of backups. This is a fundamental pillar of an effective IT Strategy, but all too often we find that businesses have not kept their backup strategy up to date with the overall changes in their IT, or even worse, they don't have a backup strategy at all.

In today's world where IT systems are paramount to business operations, the need to have data and resources backed up and able to restore in an adequate amount of time is crucial...and sometimes the difference in a company's survival. Listen to Part 2 of this series to hear about the most common scenarios Aaron Swann has seen during his 24-year IT consulting career with InfoSystems.

In this discussion Aaron outlines the reliability and pros/cons of different backup scenarios, beginning with very basic backups such as external hard drives and tapes, and also covers Cloud backups and hybrid systems.
