Your computer is hardware and without data and software the computer as hardware is really simply empty. When you work on a computer the data created is stored on a hard disk and apart from the software the data is the most important thing that you would like to have security for. But despite this being the case there are increasing number of cases where businesses and companies have lost entire data due which suffered huge irrecoverable business losses. In recent times businesses and companies have begun to turn their attention to this problem and now tie up with companies that offer data backup services. A data backup services business is basically one there a professional company will create backup resources and backup methods to store all data so that a business can always revert back to a previous days or previous time data in case of data loss.
In this article we are going to have a look to some options that people can use to enter or start a data backup services business. Usually for individual businesses like home based business people now have the option of an external memory hard drive, with an external memory hard drive you can simply plug in the hard disk into a USB port in your PC and transfer all the data. But when you have a large company with hundreds of computer and millions of transactions each day and a small external hard disk is not enough you need professional data backup services. Today there are different data back solutions and with technology advancing greatly it has given birth to the business of data backup services business. It can be safely said that such a business would be a superb venture to invest on and has a great market potential over the years to come.
If you are thinking of catering to the needs of a small home based business then there are many products in the market that you can sell for such needs. As we already mentioned that small businesses or one person businesses have small data back services requirements and such needs can be meet through external hard drives. With a small amount of capital investment you can start a home based business of selling such products. You will need to meet up with wholesalers of portable hard disk drives, USB pen drives and other products. There are various brands in the market and there are different prices for more or less the same products from different brands so before you purchase make sure that the purchase price is good enough to sell the products for a profit. When people initially set up a home based business there is often the thought that why would people buy products from you when the very same products are available in the market.
Here is where you have to create a difference, companies that make these external hard disk drives offer the retailers a margin and these products are sold at their maximum retail price (MRP). The margin on the sales of such products can be anywhere between 3% to 10% so if you can slash your profit margins for the same product then there is no reason why people wont buy from you. But to rake in significant sales you will have to promote your home based data backup services business. There are various methods how this can be achieved, search the yellow pages and create a list of all small businesses. Then call them and enquire whether they need such products and ask them if you can visit them regarding this. Upon visiting the business owners show then your products and leave a rate card. Mostly probably then next time they want any of the data backup products they call you up.
Another business model for your data backup services business can be that of providing a data backup software. Yes there can be software that will copy all the data from the system computers and store and a desired location as set by the data back software. Usually the software works by gathering all system data by networking system and then storing it either on an online source or a replacement large hard drive that can be used to recover the data in case it is lost. Making a data backup software is not all that tough a proposition but what is more important is that the software be a reliable one because in case the software does not create a data backup of even a single day then when a real data loss take place the purpose of data backup software shall have failed.
Also another major point of a data backup through system back is that the networking should be done properly and no computer system should remain unconnected. In large companies there are multiple departments each working independently but their work and process results are interdependent so if the server of a mainframe computer is not attached to the backup system software then that could cause huge problems. Thus just having good data backup system software is not good enough there are other aspects like networking and connecting the systems to the main data backup system software hold equal importance.
Because of the hassles and problems posed by a data backup system software service an increasing number of such businesses have starting basing the business model on an online data backup service. With the help of such similar online data backup service you can save your valuable data off-site conveniently, you can also schedule the time when the data is saved online. For as little as $5 you have the option to save all important files to a remote computer.
To start such a business you need incredible online space millions of gigabits worth of online space and once the business or individual signs up for your online data backup services they can simply keep uploading unlimited data to the space allotted to the person/business as per the chosen plan. Then, should you lose a file, you just connect to that remote computer and restore it. Then you need to advertise you business online and get user data backup services to sign up for the services. Over the period of time you can introduce different services models like a monthly plan, full year plan and even limited storage plans so that those people with limited usages too can avail your services.
