Tomorrow is World Backup Day 2017, as the campaign states, "Don't be an April Fool".
People now create and generate over 1.8 zettabytes of data per year but, unfortunately nearly 30% of people have never backed up their data.
Backing up your data will protect your life's work when that hard drive fails. If you are a small business, a data backup can be what saves your company. World Backup Day is here to make sure that people actually start backing up.
Share World Backup Day with all your friends and family. The virtues of both local and offsite data backup sites should be emphasised.
To all the IT professionals saying "Hoho! I'm good. I already got backups." Then March 31st is a great day to tell your bosses and colleagues about the importance of data backups and is a good day to TEST THOSE RESTORES and make sure that they actually work.
If you are a small or medium sized business, then a data disaster can be the end your company. Ever heard of the bookmark sharing site called Mag.nolia? Of course you didn’t, they suffered a catastrophic data disaster and had to shut down when they lost both their primary and backup data stores.
