DH hosts a database-driven internal app for my company. It synchronizes with QuickBooks, pays compensation, tracks sales, etc. It is vitally important to the short- and long-term operation of the company. I have been busy investing time creating an automatic backup system for our three main databases.
My question is this: realistically, what are the chances of loosing all or part of the databases? How often do these things give out for any reason? Does DH do their own internal backup? Do they provide any backup options I should know about? Anything else I should know on the topic?
I ask these things because it seems to me that many companies have vital databases out there that are MUCH larger than mine, yet I am having some difficulty backing up mine because of their size. What do those other companies know that I don't? Do they just not back them up because there's no need? Or are there backup solutions I need to tap into?
Thanks for your help. Really.
