Companies, big and small that depends on IT for its day to day operations, know very well that backup is a requirement. Data loss and downtime have serious implications for business. Ironically, verification of data backup integrity is the least emphasized task.
“A study in 2007 by Datamonitor found that as many as one-third of IT decision-makers believes that a major data loss incident at their firm could lead to bankruptcy. Small businesses may be more vulnerable, according to a recent survey by Verio. 70% of small businesses reported that a single incident of data loss would be considered significant and costly. These concerns are well grounded as over one-half of the respondents have already experienced some data loss (Verio 2007). Although hard drive manufacturers claim less than a 1% failure rate, recent research by computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University found that a 2%-4% failure rate is more common and under some conditions the failure rate may reach as high as 13% (Schroeder & Gibson, 2007).”
