At Least Three Copies of Data

Three copies means - One original file + One local backup + One offsite backup


Stored on Two Types of Media

The purpose of storing backup files on multiple types of storage media allows for mitigation of the vulnerabilities of your backup.
Types of storage media include, but are not limited to ASUSTOR NAS and external drives. ASUSTOR NAS devices make it easy to make backups convenient to use and less tedious.


At Least One Offsite Backup

Backups that are stored on local hardware are most vulnerable to fires, floods, hardware damage, theft, human error and malware.
Offsite backups, while presenting their own vulnerabilities, cover these vulnerabilities, ensuring that when one backup goes down, the other two can help restore functionality to normal.
Use your ASUSTOR NAS to conveniently keep data backed up to affordable cloud services and/or MyArchive drives in addition to local backups to ensure data protection.
