Message from Uzair Sattar, Founder


“With tax season behind us, we thought it made sense to focus on the best practices for a backup strategy for your business. In fact, a regular backup and restore strategy is vital to prevent against a data-loss catastrophe. Losing valuable data can put your customers’ personal data at risk but also have a significant impact on your company and brand. This newsletter shares some of our thinking on this important strategy to protect your business information — it is a key goal of the services we provide clients.”

Backup is one thing. Restore is everything.

At ICE Consulting, we know that the cloud is essential to how you do business. However, for all the amazing benefits, the potential for data loss is nevertheless very real. Is your organization prepared for a data disaster? Data is the most valuable part of your company, and a key part of your operational infrastructure. The problem? We’ve found that many businesses don’t think about their disaster recovery protocols until it is too late.  

As one of the top managed solution providers in Silicon Valley, we understand how important it is to have an extremely fast, secure, and effective backup solution. We’ve helped 1000s of our clients with this. Our customers have discovered that, in many cases, outsourcing backup and disaster recovery is a simpler, easier way to ensure that their company’s data is protected.



“As data increasingly becomes the new ‘oil’ — protecting your company’s most valuable asset becomes even more important.”

As more organizations realize the importance of protecting their critical data in SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) applications like Google Apps and Salesforce, they’re focusing primarily on finding effective solutions for data backup. That’s a crucial step, but keep in mind, backup is one thing, but restoring your data is everything! It’s that recovery stage you will need. A SaaS backup won’t do you much good if you can’t restore your data quickly and easily — exactly as you need it.


Microsoft Office 365 is known for offering valuable and symbiotic workplaces for its customers. Industry-leading security measures and attention to privacy, compliance, and accessibility support the robust functionality of the cloud productivity suite. Nonetheless, research still shows that data loss and security are still major concerns for most businesses migrating to the cloud.


A recent survey shows that a staggering 60% of companies that lose critical data shut down within six months of the loss1. Also, that a simple drive recovery can cost upwards of $7,500 and success is not guaranteed. These concerns can be mollified by having secure backups and the ability to quickly restore your data to an application in case of data loss.



1The U.S’ National Cyber Security Alliance found that 60 percent of small companies are unable to sustain their businesses over six months after a cyber attack.
