Mac Backup with RDX QuikStor and Apple Time Machine

Time Machine is an easy-to-use built-in backup routine for Mac systems. It performs manual and automated backups to disk devices. The automated mode runs hourly backups, consolidates them each day and keeps them for a month. After that, they are consolidated to weekly backups. Time Machine offers recovery points of each backup performed. Systems can easily be restored to a known recovery point. This is especially useful in the event of a virus or ransomware attack.

Finding the right solution

Mostly, MAC users perform backups on external hard disks. However, these devices do not offer a reliable and robust solution. In addition, they do not provide full disaster protection against unforeseen incidents at the office location or virus and ransomware attacks as they are constantly attached to the MAC system. Full disaster protection can only be guaranteed by utilizing removable storage devices such as RDX QuikStor
from Overland-Tandberg.

Media rotation for full disaster protection

The removability of the RDX media allows implementing data protection best practices by rotating cartridges to provide multiple layers of protection. One media resides in the system ready for the backup, one media is located offsite at an external location and the third one is in transit on its way either to or from the office. A media rotation scheme with at least three media allows you to meet most disaster protection and compliance requirements.
