WHAT IS DATA BACKUP?

Information stored in data backup solutions should consist of a current or near-current copy of the original data. The goal?  To perform a full restore in the event of damage or a complete loss. Several types of enterprise data backups exist, each with its own distinct advantages and downsides.

There are mainly three types of backup: full, differential, and incremental.
 
Let’s dive in to know more about the types of backup, the difference between them and which one would be the best fit for your business
types of backups

Full Backup

As its name suggests, a full solution involves a comprehensive data backup covering the entire data set. Subsequent backups will also include the data in its entirety. These thorough backups can provide considerable peace of mind in the event of breach or some other calamity—but they often prove costly and time-intensive. Hence, many organizations rely on full backups purely as supplemental to an alternative backup strategy. Some businesses conduct full backups initially, to be followed by incremental or differential backups in the future.

Differential Backup

Similar in many respects to incremental backup, differential purely backs up files that have changed since the last full backup, versus those changed after backups of any kind. These types of data backup can be managed by a third-party service provider through a backup-as-a-service model.
