Data Backup and Recovery

What are the 3 Types of Backups?

Full backups — Imagine this process as pushing all of the data held on a production system onto a backup system for safekeeping, similar to filling up an extra tyre at the gas station. A single server, database, virtual machine (VM), or other network-connected data source is completely backed up to ensure its complete security. Depending on how much data needs to be stored, these backups may take several hours or even days. A data management solution needs to do fewer full backups the more up to date it is, and when it does, it does it more quickly.

What is Data Recovery and Types?

Recovery is the process whereby you retrieve and restore that backup data to your production systems to avoid downtime.
