What is Data? And why do I need a Backup?
Data is, any information, that you business has or accumulates over a period of time and that becomes the lifeblood of your business.
To a CPA Practice, it is Quickbooks or Lacerte files they hold for all of their clients.
To a Medical Practice, it is the Electronic Medical Records (EMR/EHR) they have of all of their patients.
To a Legal Practice, they are the case files where many of their clients and associates have pored over hours of work and research.
To a Construction Business, they are the AutoCAD drawings and Land Surveys they've conducted over a period of many years.
To a Police Department, it is the Record Management System (RMS) that holds all the evidence and interviews they've conducted during their investigations.
In the simplest terms, it is Data that drives business, not the software or applications.
Data once lost becomes extremely expensive and time consuming to recover. A good example is Car Insurance, you don't think you really need it but no car should be on the road without it.

You're right, there are many solutions out there from simple USB Backup to the more complex Clustered Data Center backups to the more advanced Cloud Backup.
