A Backup Tale
Once upon a time there was a really important server which hosted a really important website. This website served a lot of people and they loved it. The website’s owners invested lots of time, effort and finances, and employed lots of talented guys and gals to develop, design, edit and maintain it.
One day, a vicious hacker attacked the server, found a security hole and was able to totally destroy the beloved website hosted on it. The server´s sysadmin logged into the server, closed the security hole and turned to the website´s backup in order to restore the damaged data. But alas, backups did not run for over a month and no one knew about it! Valuable data was lost, manual restoration took much time and the costs were quite high. Lots of people were unhappy and some of the employees lost their jobs.
Does this sound familiar? Well, it happens all the time.
Keeping our online assets secure and backed up was always an issue, even more these days since the cloud hype is high and ransomware has been inserted into our daily conversations.

He noticed that several backup jobs existed across multiple destinations. He chose a full backup restore,
waited a little less than a half hour for a successful restore to complete, then confirmed everything was back to normal. All clients were extremely happy and no employees lost their jobs.
