By following the Six Sigma approach to backup and data recovery you can protect your business and get more out of your existing technology. Each application is different and requires a unique set of backup and recovery solutions.

Backups are done on-site and this can be an expensive way of implementing a backup solution. I recommend checking with your NS backup are and using an and off approach. The easiest way to provide remote backups and emergency copies are with an offsite monitored server. The server sends regular reports to an offsite location. The location can be the optimum place to store the logs. The server burns the logs to a CD or DVD on a scheduled basis.

One of the great things about offsite monitoring is the fact that because the server is designed to be available online it is secured against malware and spyware. This means that your data is safe and protected.

Stop paying for expensive firewalls or anti-virus software.

Computers are constantly changing and with the blink of an eye switching from one technology to another can occur with the ease of a button. In the past, one of the necessary steps in computer maintenance was shutting down the old technology and installing a new one. However, with the help of automated tools, this process can be simplified and in a matter of minutes instead of days.

There are also a lot of free pre-installed network monitoring tools that will provide you with a basic analysis of your connection record. Disk utility, Windows cleaner, and utilities for internet bandwidth monitoring are among the tools that you should be using.

There are also a few steps you can take to simplify your computer maintenance. For starters, remove the bottom panel of the computer and the drawing of the cables used to connect it to the computer. This makes access to the cables easier and reduces the chance of encountering electrical shorts. It is important to remember that the goal is to remove all possibility of dangerous accidents. Keep the computer away from radiation and keep the cabinet clean.

Cleaning the computer’s bottom provides additional benefits. It ensures that the machine’s interior is free from dust and provides protection against fluids that might enter the machine. Clean the keyboard and the outer shell of the computer. The outsides can be cleaned using vinegar or a mild cleaning agent. For areas requiring a deeper cleaning, the side panels can be removed and the delicate parts of the system removed and saved for cleaning with mild detergent.

All the connections that are in the computer should be coated with some type of protection.
