Google Workspace Backup

There’s a misconception that cloud-service-providers guarantee your data. The fact is they stand behind the stability of their infrastructure (with uptime guarantees) – they are not liable for your data.

Bryley BU/DR for Google Workspace tracks your document changes in Google Workspace, secures the data and creates encrypted, replicable versions at a tier-three data center. This is a true incremental-change backup on a different server. So if something happens to make your data unavailable at the cloud-service-provider, you’re still in good shape.

It’s tempting to no longer practice good data-hygiene, but instead trust in big companies. But doesn’t that sound like a recipe for trouble? Organizations need to treat these Google cloud servers with the same sense of self-preservation they would if the servers were in their own building. That means continuing to follow the 3-2-1 policy – three copies at two locations and one off-site. Imagine keeping the only copies of your company’s data at Google and that data’s hit by ransomware, you will not be able to get anything back. These cloud providers are selling convenience and so have made it appealing and easy for users to be negligent.

Think of cloud-service providers like renting an apartment. The apartment association and management office take care of the infrastructure … the roof, the walls, the plumbing — if a pipe bursts they’ll fix it. But they’re not going to replace your TV or pearls or anything like that. They don’t want that kind of liability. As far as Microsoft or Google is concerned, they stand behind their infrastructure.

Bryley Backup for Google Workspace backs up Gmail, contents of Drive (including Shared Drives), Calendars, Contacts and Sites. And if the Google Workspace licensing changes for an employee, Bryley adjusts to back up the user’s changed suite access.

So protect your data assets on cloud servers like you would the server in your building, by putting a highly-available backup copy on a different server. This is a backup that will not go down if the first backup does and from which your employees can work if the main service is disrupted. Read the Bryley BU/DR for Cloud Services specs here.
