When backing up essential business information, there is a lot that can go wrong in the planning and implementation stages. When dealing with online data backup, Business Solutions said companies must be careful and precise with what they do. The website spoke with some experts on what they have seen in the industry and some common tips. Tom Simon, director of sales at Datto, said data backup is important to keep up with and cannot be forgotten about. Companies must also make sure the pricing is done well for them and there is training for use in place.

"MSPs should take advantage of all training their vendors offer," he told the news source. "This will help MSPs become true experts on the technology and solution, therefore creating more value for their clients."

Jamie Brenzel, CEO of KineticD, told Business Solutions a few other tips, including to have trust in the vendor and partner for their data backup. This means doing research and diligence in the provider being utilized to ensure they will be around. Brenzel said testing is also a must and should be done often.

One professional told TechTarget that although some organizations will insist data backup stays on-site, with the amount of mobile workers, businesses will need to have the flexibility online data backup can provide.
