The act of deliberately collecting data, creating a viable copy of it, and storing it where it is both safe and easily retrieved. The term can also apply to the guidelines, procedures, or schedules by which backup operations occur. Backup operations often also extend to provide off-site storage of data for long-term retention or protection against disasters.
In the digital age, maximizing asset value often means using different storage tiers with different cost and access characteristics for data in different stages of its life.
