Protect your most valuable business asset

Big data has become big business. Almost every company has transformed into a digital company these days. It does no longer matter in which business you’re competing – devices are now equipped with all kinds of sensors and connected through the latest IoT technologies. So how do you turn large volumes of information to your advantage? Firstly, you need to become aware of how valuable an asset your data is, because it’s unique for every company. And secondly, you should realize the need to protect your data. The yearly World Backup Day is a friendly reminder of that. This way you can continue to monetise it and maintain or even strengthen your competitive position with it.

Regular backups

The first thing that probably comes to mind to protect your data is routinely making backups. After all, we all know that backups are necessary to avoid running the risk of your data getting lost. We want to emphasize the importance of a decent backup, because, surprisingly enough though, only 25% of us actually make regular data backups. Besides that, backing up your personal data versus a company’s databases is a whole different story. You need to take into account issues such as privacy and security, for example, leading to an alternative approach.

The cloud as your safe haven

Not sure how to get started on backing up your company data? You should definitely consider the cloud as an option. Cloud backups are dependable, require a minimal investment and can easily be customized to your needs. You can use your SQL Server databases, while simultaneously tackling any issues with your hardware, software, servicing, security threats, patching, updates, upgrades, etc. Kohera can help you decide which options are most suitable for you.

Don’t take a leap of faith, choose a trustworthy solution

In order to protect all its data more securely and be ready for an increasingly digital future, East-Limburg Hospital (ZOL) decided to become the first hospital in the Belgian healthcare system to start using the cloud for its data storage. Kohera took care of the database maintenance, backups and all operational procedures, including an active disaster recovery to ensure digital patient records can be accessed securely, reliably and swiftly at all times. ‘The amount of data is increasing all the time, but whatever happens, the digital information can never be lost. This hybrid cloud solution from Kohera guarantees this,’ explains Peter Thijs, CIO for East-Limburg Hospital.
