Protect enterprise data with the 3-2-1 strategy and Synology

August 17, 2017 Kellen Blassingame


I.T. Managers and CIO's know the 3-2-1 rule: keep three copies of anything important in at least two formats with one copy off site. If your enterprise has yet to implement a 3-2-1 satisfying strategy, it's something that should be seriously considered. According to FEMA, 60% of firms that suffer a data loss event will shut down within six months1. Enterprise level data storage presents a hard dichotomy between cost effectiveness, immediate accessibility, and physical redundancy. Third-party, archival backup solutions offer cost effective, off site redundancy at the expense of immediate access. Cloning your current propriety enterprise array twice solves redundancy and allows for anytime access, yet often at a high price initially and as drives require replacement.

With competitively priced, drive agnostic storage solutions, Synology has created a bridge between cost effectiveness, instant access, and physical redundancy, allowing IT Managers to save on both initial costs and drive replacement. Using a single Synology deployment, coupled with a third-party, archival backup solution allows enterprises to store data off site, while maintaining an instantly accessible backup. If your business has use of a second location, two Synology deployments act as instantly accessible backups while satisfying off site requirements.

Synology can help your enterprise satisfy the 3-2-1 rule if you haven't already, or for a fraction of the cost moving forward.
