    Web Hosting

    When it comes to web hosting there is a lot to consider:
    The budget you have available for purchasing as server is clearly going to be the first consideration. If all your business needs is a file-sharing and print server with basic capabilities such as remote access, a lower-end server should suit your needs. If your business is growing fast it’s a good idea to spend more because low-end servers tend to be less scalable.
    The configuration and price of the server will depend largely on the types of workloads you’ll be running. Do you need the server to host a website or a database? What about email? Take some time to consider your daily operations and your business needs and make sure you’re armed with that information when evaluating servers.
    If the business is growing you’ll need a server that will grow with it. If you’re going to be adding lots of new users and hosting many large files, such as videos and images, then look for a server with a great deal of storage capacity and multiple drives.
    Virtualization isn’t just for large enterprises. Many smaller company are also realizing the benefits of virtualization technology, which allows users treat one server as if it were multiple servers. Make sure the server supports virtualization if that’s one of your objectives.
    Now that you’re going to be storing a great deal of data on a shared server, it’s important to make sure that information is fully protected against theft, hardware failure, computer viruses and natural disasters. Use a cloud backup solution like Carbonite and all of that critical business information will be safe and accessible no matter what happens.
    The importance of data can go a long way toward helping you determine if you need to back it up—as well as when and how it should be backed up. For critical data, such as a database, you’ll want to have redundant backup sets that extend back for several backup periods. For sensitive data, you’ll want to ensure that backup data is physically secure or encrypted. For less important data, such as daily user files, you won’t need such an elaborate backup plan, but you’ll need to back up the data regularly and ensure that the data can be recovered easily.
    Data that doesn’t seem important to you might be very important to someone else. Thus, the type of information the data contains can help you determine if you need to back up the data—as well as when and how the data should be backed up.
    The frequency of change can affect your decision on how often the data should be backed up. For example, data that changes daily should be backed up daily.
    Shadow copies are point-in-time copies of documents in shared folders. These point-in-time copies make recovering documents easy, because you can quickly go back to an older version in case a document is deleted or overwritten accidentally. You should use shadow copies in addition to standard backup—not to replace backup procedures.
    Time is an important factor in creating a backup plan. For critical systems, you might need to get back online swiftly. To do this, you might need to alter your backup plan.
    You must have backup hardware to perform backups. To perform timely backups, you might need several backup devices and several sets of backup media. Backup hardware includes tape drives, optical drives, and removable disk drives. Generally, tape drives are less expensive but slower than other types of drives.
    Ideally, someone should be a primary contact for the organization’s backup and recovery plan. This person might also be responsible for performing the actual backup and recovery of data.
    Scheduling backups when system use is as low as possible will speed the backup process. However, you can’t always schedule backups for off-peak hours. So you need to carefully plan when key system data is backed up.
    Storing copies of backup tapes off-site is essential to recovering your systems in the case of a natural disaster. In your offsite storage location, you should also include copies of the software you might need to install to re-establish operational systems.
