Backup | Cloud Backup
A backup is a copy of data made to protect it from loss or damage. Backups are an important part of a disaster recovery plan because they provide a means of restoring data in the event of data loss or corruption.

Common methods and technologies related to backups include:

Full Backup: This is a method of backing up all data in a system or storage device. A full backup captures all data, including files, directories and system metadata, and can be used to restore the entire system to a previous state.

Incremental backup: With this method, only the data that has changed since the last backup is backed up. Incremental backups are faster and more efficient than full backups, but require the ability to restore from multiple backup sets.

Differential backup: This method backs up all data that has changed since the last full backup. Differential backups are similar to incremental backups, but they only require the ability to restore from the last full backup and the last differential backup.

Cloud backup: This is a method of storing backups in the cloud using cloud storage services such as Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure Storage. Cloud backups offer the benefits of off-site storage and remote access, as well as the ability to expand storage capacity as needed.

Overall, these methods and technologies provide the tools and infrastructure needed to create and manage backups to ensure data availability and recoverability.

BITS experts use backups as well as related technologies in a wide range of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.

Development of a web application and a mobile app to improve breast cancer patient follow-up.

Together with Apps in Medicine GmbH, AOK Bayern, DAK Gesundheit and Siemens Betriebskrankenkasse (SBK), under the direction of the Klinikum rechts der Isar of the Technical University of Munich (MRI), BITS participated in the PRISMA study as a consortium partner for the technical infrastructure.

Establishment and operation of a European trading platform for pharmaceuticals

Together with arex PHARMA GmbH, a specialist in the international trade and distribution of European pharmaceuticals, BITS GmbH has established the EU-wide trading platform Rxchange for pharmaceutical products as a strategic IT partner.

Transition Management

We were able to profitably apply our experience in the IT infrastructure sector during the relocation of the complete data centers of a major corporation. The particular challenge was the relocation of the complete server infrastructure within one year during ongoing operations and the resulting high complexity of the processes to be planned.
