Backing Up Data That Is Critical To Your Business
While Hollander Backup provides an additional fail-safe cloud backup layer for your Powerlink data, it is still critical that your business perform a local nightly backup. This helps to ensure that Hollander installation specialists can help you restore the most up-to-data information possible in the event of a system failure. Along with your data, it is also important to perform local backups for your images since these are not part of the Hollander Backup process.
