Backup Servers

Protect your data with a backup server

As businesses rely more than ever on their data, backup servers have become an essential part of the data center. Cloud backup offerings have introduced greater ease and redundancy into backup and recovery routines -- but many businesses still consider having a backup server on-premise as essential.

When provisioning backup servers, reliability is critical to ensuring data integrity and automation is essential for simplifying server management. That's why so many businesses today rely on PowerEdge servers to secure their data.

Benefits of a backup server

Using an on-premise backup server in addition to cloud backup provides another level of redundancy for critical data. When the primary server fails, a backup can help alleviate essential losses of data.

On-premise backups may offer increased logistical flexibility for IT teams. Should there be a need, teams can access data faster than retrieving files from data stores off-site or third-party providers.

Through automated processes, backup servers significantly improve the quality of backups while reducing the administrative burden on IT teams.
