An IT guy for a major — in fact, the biggest — U.S. company’s corporate office was talking to us about backup.
FRP does a lot of things, as you can see in this blog, but the most common, most obvious use for file replication is remote backup.
“The guys on the floor know how important it is,” the IT guy assured us, “because we know how many man-hours are involved in cleaning up after problems without backup.”
We could see from his suddenly-haggard face that he did know this. We didn’t press for details of what had clearly been a traumatic experience.
“The guys who sign the checks don’t think about it,” he continued. “It isn’t always real to them, because they haven’t experienced it.”
This isn’t important only to giant multinational corporations. Government figures tell us that 20% of small to medium sized businesses will suffer a major loss of ciritical data in any five year period. And the same source reports that 93% of companies that lose their data center for 10 days or more will file for bankruptcy within a year.
The great thing about FRP is that it will do the necessary backup to keep data completely safe without additional effort on the part of either the IT department or management. Install it, configure it, and rest easy knowing that FRP will keep your data safe with the least possible use of resources.
Another great thing about FRP is that you can try it — in your workspace — for 45 days for free. No guesswork. If you’re the guy who signs the checks, you’ll know that it’ll work for you before you make the investment.
Your IT department will thank you.
