Database Backup and Recovery

Businesses are constantly at risk of data loss which is why an effective data protection policy should be in place to protect databases and to reconstruct the data, should said loss occur.

Most businesses do not realize the value of data protection which is why most do not give much credit to data backup and a recovery strategy. If you are one of them then only will this make your data vulnerable to loss and damage, but you are opening your business to potential ruin.

Here is a look at what backup and recovery is and how the approach protects your system.

What is Backup?

Backup is a copy of data that comprises of important aspects of a database such as data files and control files. A backup serves as a shield to safeguard a company against unexpected data loss and application errors.

When it comes to backups of digital content, you may find multiple variations that have their own pros and cons.

Full Backup – A method of backup in which all files and folders are backed up every time you run a backup. This type of backup allows you to easily retrieve a file or data by showing a complete list of stored items each time.

Incremental Backup – A type of backup that creates a backup of all changes made since the last backup. It sounds like a mouthful but with incremental backups, you can save much of your storage space by avoiding duplication.

Mirror Backup – As the name suggests, the mirror backup is the exact copy of the original source. As mirror backup removes everything that is deleted from the original source, it should be used with caution when critical data is involved.

Online Backup – The type of backup in which the files and data are continuously or frequently backed up to a storage medium that is always linked to the source. Usually, the storage medium is offsite and is connected to the source via the internet or network.

Cloud Backup – A type of online backup in which the data is backed up to a storage facility connected over the internet. The backup can be accessed from virtually any location via login credentials.

What is Data Recovery?

Recovering all or some parts of the database refers to retrieving a copy of the data files from a backup storage and making it available to the database server.
