Did You Know: Implementing 3-2-1 Backup Rule with HYCU

Did you know that HYCU provides simple one-click configuration of one of the most practiced data protection strategies, 3-2-1?

When discussing best practices for protecting business data, one of the safest rules to follow is 3-2-1. But, what exactly does 3-2-1 mean? It’s pretty simple though:

– Three: Number of copies of data

– Two: Number of copies to be stored on at least two different media

– One: Number of copies to be stored off-site

The good news is that HYCU already embeds the 3-2-1 approach by enabling one-click simple configuration for one of the most practiced and implemented backup strategies in the industry.

How to Implement 3-2-1 with HYCU

Having three copies of the data includes also the primary/production data and that already includes using one media for primary storage. What you need to make sure is that two additional copies are created and one of those needs to be off-site.The simplest way to accomplish this with HYCU is by having two backup targets defined – one on-site and a second one should be an Azure or AWS target in order to assure that you have a copy offsite. The dialog below is all you need to do in order to configure.

But don’t just take my word for it. Try HYCU and see for yourself.
