We had looked at backup, but the more we looked into it, the more it seemed to be a real minefield. Using the book we were able to approach our technical partner, Aindale, who quickly helped us find the right solution.

As data becomes the lifeblood of even small and medium sized organizations, the need for information continuity is even more important. Being able to ask the right questions gives these organizations an advantage over those who choose to work without informed help.

I know it sounds awful, but when I had my laptop nicked I experienced grief for the first time in my life. Gareth helped me as much as he could after the event but the horse had bolted. He couldn’t believe I hadn’t backed up my data. Nor can I now. This book makes absolutely essential reading for anyone – even me, if I could read.
