Having trouble explaining to your companyâ€™s accountants why backup software is a necessary expense?Â It happens to the best of us.Â Honestly, sometimes we think our accountants even resent letting us have the office lights turned onâ€¦
At the end of the day, effective backup software is a core component to keeping your important data secure.Â Itâ€™s a sacrosanct part of your IT budget, whether accounting likes it or not.
We canâ€™t guarantee that the following gifs will help convince the powers that be, but at least theyâ€™ll provide a chuckle while you work out how to phrase your pitch.
And remember, a reminder of what a server crash would mean for your accounts departmentâ€™s financial records is always a winning tacticâ€¦

Get a good laugh in? Â We know we did. Â But don’t forget there’s an important moral to this story – backup software matters!
Without effective backup software your company’s data isn’t secure. Â Without secure data your business is at risk of losing everything. Â If you donâ€™t believe us then ask Code Spaces
We’re not trying to sell you anything right now. Â Do your research and find theÂ backup softwareÂ that addresses your company’s needs and fits your budget. Â Just make sure you have backup software protecting all of your servers, applications and data.Â Even more importantly, make sure youâ€™re running the right kind of backups to get that data back. Â Donâ€™t forget, restoring a mail serverâ€™s database is very different to restoring a mail item.
Whatever you do end up spending on your chosen backup software is always going to be worth it in the long run.
