ZFS Snapshots are a core feature in the storage technology that LANified! IT Services employs for ourselves and our clients.
Data that is protected by ZFS Snapshots can be rolled back to specific points in time, hence snapshots. When rolling back you can decide how much or little to restore. Be it small amounts such as individual files, be it all the data, or be it somewhere in between.
ZFS Snapshots can be set up in many different ways, protecting many different kinds of data. The frequency a ZFS Snapshot is made is also very flexible, and can be adjusted to meet your needs. ZFS Snapshots typically have almost no performance cost, however accounting for the amount of storage they take is important. ZFS Snapshots taken every few hours typically use up less space than if they were taken every 15 minutes.
ZFS Snapshots guard against...
- Human error (accidental deletion)
- Malicious staff (intentional deletion)
- Application error (accidental deletion)
- Certain unforeseen failures
ZFS Snapshots are an extremely reliable mechanism to protect your data against many problematic scenarios. We at LANified! IT Services genuinely believe it is the best protection against Ransomware. ZFS Snapshots also address many other problematic scenarios, such as accidental file deletion, malicious staff deleting stuff as they leave, applications misbehaving, and certain other catastrophic failure scenarios.
LANified! IT Services implements ZFS Snapshots to guard the interest of Calgary & International clients. This includes residential, business and organisational clients.
