Back That Serve' Up
Spring is officially in full swing, but we’re looking towards the Summertime. This week we’re taking a look at Scheduled Backups, one of the features you can look forward to with the Summer 2015 version of Ascend RMS. Read on to learn how to keep yourself stress-free during a server failure.
No-Hassle Backups: With Scheduled Backup enabled, server PCs can be automatically backed up to any folder, any time. While we also recommend keeping an off-site backup in case of theft or fire, Scheduled Backups allow you to set it and forget it.
- The Back Up DB icon is automatically hidden on workstations that are not your server
- Set any desired backup time, just after close or during the moonlight hours
- Choose any folder as your backup location and if your external drive is too full, Ascend automatically leaves a copy on your PC
- Assign an email for your system to notify you once the back up is complete
But what if your backup fails? Well, you’ll receive a failure notification and an email will be sent to the Ascend Support Team for further investigation. No input needed.
Having a backup gives you peace of mind and ensures your business can keep running in the event your server is ever damaged or becomes corrupted. It can happen to anyone and because of countless reasons: an electric surge, an old workstation, or a spilled beer.
Whatever the reason, it’s better to be safe than sorry. The problem is that it’s not always easy to remember to do it. So, make sure to take a few minutes to configure your options once the feature is released on June 9th. And remember to check out Help, Ascend University on Vimeo, the ACN on Yammer, and our website for help on getting started or getting better. Not what you’re looking for?
