It’s easy to take for granted the things we use every day. For example, do you realize how much you rely on electricity? When the power goes out, you do: no refrigerator, no lights, no A/C, and most importantly, no WiFi. You don’t realize how important your car is until you have to put it in the shop for a few days. And you don’t realize how fragile your files are until your server crashes.

If you own a business, that last example might hurt the worst.

Can you imagine? Years and years of files—important files and customer information—collecting inside your Documents folder. And then one day your entire system crashes, and those files are gone.

Your business plan took years to write, and now it’s gone. Every piece of information you have regarding your client list: gone. Contracts and financials and pictures—that video you had of your ribbon-cutting ceremony the day you opened the business’s doors…all gone.

Where does that leave you? Well, you know where. But this doesn’t have to happen. By backing up your files offline, you can avoid this situation entirely.

What Are My Options?

There are three ways to save and stores your files:

  • Local Copy – saving to your computer
  • Local Backup – saving files to a hard drive or pictures to a CD
  • Offsite Backup – virtual standby servers

Local copy is the easiest and the least reliable option, as you can see in the above example. Local Backup is safe in case your computer crashes, but if something were to happen to the piece of equipment itself (a thumb drive, for example), you lose your files as well.

Offsite backup is the safest way to ensure the life of your files. With a company like CPT, we can bring replications of your files into a cloud-based service, ensuring the survival of your files regardless of what may happen to your computer equipment or business location.

At CPT of South Florida, we use a remote physical backup appliance that lets you securely and efficiently replicate your data in the cloud.

Our business switched from one large VOIP provider to GoToConnect recommended by CPT of South Florida. Although we had a significant pricing decrease, the biggest benefits were in a much more user friendly and powerful phone system.

CPT has been a great partner for many years. We can always depend on their expertise and recommendations. They have solved complicated network issues with top notch techs. They also recommended and guided us through the installation of the logmein/Jive phone system that turned out to be a great decision and CPT was a big part of the projects success..

2 years ago I replaced my phone system. It was a very difficult situation due to the nature of my business. CPT did a good job. There were some hiccups as there are in anything you do of this magnitude and CPT rectified them. There support in the last 2 years has been very good.
