Every admin understands that all workloads should be protected with both local and offsite backups, regardless of the platform or hypervisor you are running (VMware, Hyper-V, or physical)

One of the most important concepts to help protect your environment is the 3-2-1 Backup Rule. This industry standard for backing up your data addresses the most important questions pertaining to backup: How many copies of my data do I need and where do I need to store them?

  • Keep 3 separate copies of your data (backup chains)
  • Store the copies on at least 2 types of media
  • Keep at least 1 copy off site

3 2 1 Rule

In complying with the 3-2-1 Backup Rule, you can rest assured that your company is prepared for any failure scenario!
