Few events are potentially more catastrophic for a business than a computer system crash that takes down your data and other digital records with it. Organizations throughout northeast Wisconsin look to ARMS Inc. for assistance with backup media rotation services to insulate their operations from disaster.

ARMS, a leader in information management, works with businesses and organizations to develop backup media rotation strategies that are appropriate for every situation.

“Digital technology is wonderful when everything runs smoothly, but virtually everyone has experienced the frustration and panic that sets in when disaster strikes,” says Eric Haas, president and CEO at ARMS. “Regularly scheduled backup media rotation serves as a rescue net when the technology gods are in a foul mood.”

Backup Media Rotation is a Phone Call Away

ARMS offers media storage services that enhance data protection beyond backup media rotation to include off-site storage solutions. The Grandfather method is an effective strategy that features three generations of media held at customer locations as well as in the ARMS facility.

This strategy typically involves four tapes or drives used Monday through Thursday for incremental backups and three storage devices for full backups every Friday. An additional dozen media devices are used for monthly full backups and rotated offsite.

“We work with our customers to craft schedules that make sense for the way they do business,” Haas says. “It’s unfortunate, but we see examples every year of organizations that wait until it’s too late to embark on a backup media rotation strategy.”
