March 31st is World Backup Day, when people around the globe are encouraged to protect their digital content, by taking The World Backup Day Pledge:

“I solemnly swear to backup my important documents and precious memories on March 31st.”

If you have friends or family members who aren’t tech-savvy, please take the opportunity to educate them on the importance of regular backups. Take the World Backup Day Pledge to spread the word on Twitter or Facebook.

Once a Year Clearly Isn’t Enough for Business

World Backup Day also serves as a perfect reminder for businesses to take a fresh look at their data protection solutions and practices.

Is your business prepared?

How long will it take for you to restore business-critical applications when disaster strikes?

Have you tested your disaster recovery plan to confirm it works?

Data is the lifeblood of every company. Equipment failures, viruses, ransomware attacks and other incidents can destroy data and do irreparable harm to your business, impairing worker productivity, customer satisfaction and sales.

A fast, reliable and cost-effective data backup and recovery solution is paramount in today’s digital world.

Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage Improves Data Backup and Recovery

Wasabi hot cloud storage is engineered for extreme data integrity and security, provides eleven 9s object durability, and supports optional data immutability to protect against administrative mishaps, ransomware and viruses.

Wasabi Backup and Recovery in Action: The Kim Komando Show

The Kim Komando Show, a popular consumer technology program, uses Wasabi to protect its massive multimedia library. Each episode of the weekly radio show is video-recorded for on-demand viewing. Every month the show adds 2.8 TB of video to its library. Like many customers, the broadcaster replaced its inefficient tape-based backup solution with Wasabi. The entire Kim Komando library is now stored safely in the cloud. The company no longer has to endure the hassles, risks or expenses of shipping tapes offsite for safekeeping.
