4 Ways for Time Machine to Fail

  1. Handing out hard drives

    Distributing hard drives to all of your employees is a recipe for failure. Employees are not motivated to regularly plug in a hard drive just for a backup, and you have no way to check if they did so. You don’t want to find out no one was using those hard drives only after you’ve lost data. Backups need to be automated, effortless, and centrally monitored.

  2. Trusting Time Machine Server

    You set up Time Machine for your employees, and you even set up Time Machine Server to centralize the backups and rudimentary monitoring. Time Machine Server gives you the sense that you’ve protected your business data, but you have no plan for ransomware, theft, or disaster. You need an offsite backup to truly protect your business.

  3. No more space

    Time Machine makes it easy to back up everything, but it’s remarkably hard to only back up certain files. Only documents? No. Only user folders? Only if you exclude every other path on every machine. Exclude all media? Forget it. Go buy a bigger destination. Without the ability to filter files and folders based on your business’s data usage, you’ll need to keep buying storage. You need a solution with powerful file filtering, file deduplication, and block-level deduplication.

  4. Custom code

    Time Machine has its faults, but with custom code, you can work around it. Centralized monitoring? Python. Email notifications when there have been no backups? Ruby and SendGrid. Testing the system for bugs? Sometime next month... Custom code can work, if you have the knowledge and time to make it work, but you also have a hundred other tasks. Your backup system should be a professional solution built and tested for businesses like yours.

Bottom Line

Time Machine is not designed for businesses. Retrospect Backup is. It’s an insurance policy on your business data. You have insurance for your office, your house, your car, and your health. Your business data deserves one too.
