Understanding the Importance of Data Storage


Small Biz Matters – a half hour program each week where you can work ON your business rather than IN it.
with Alexi Boyd from Boyd Office Management Services on 17 April 2018 (part one)

The Cloud. We get it, we use it. We count on it.

Every day when operating as a small businesses we rely heavily on the cloud and internet storage. We assume it’s safe, secure and backed up SOMEWHERE. We assume it’s available anytime and reliable and we assume the content we produce is ours to do with what we wish. But we’re not careful enough.

But like all things (except death and taxes as they say) you can’t be sure of it. You need to be in control with this extremely important tool of your trade. What if you can’t find an important document? What if the storage you relied on suddenly wasn’t there? What if you never backed up?

Well today we have on the show another great expert; Gunnar Habitz to help us navigate through the complexities of Cloud storage but like always on Small Biz we’ll make sure you have practical strategies to ensure you take control.
