Bookmark sharing site Ma.gnolia just had a big problem (not quite clear from the site what it was) and user data was trashed. They needed to restore from backup.
Only one little problem – they didn’t have one.
We’ve talked about this before when JournalSpace failed, and I’m sure this won’t be the last time a business failure like this happens.
It’s plain and simple, folks:
- Back up often
- Get your backups offsite as fast as possible
- Test your backups as often as possible
If you can automate this entire process, you’ll be even better off, but please, for the love of your customers, employees and investors, at least just do it manually once a month.
