Protect Your UC Data
Most products in the Cisco UC product line require the use of an SFTP server as a target for their backups. This is something which many organizations do not have in house. Generally these end up being installed as a tertiary service on a Windows server that has a different primary role or do not get setup at all because the local system administrators would like a better solution than that but cannot find one. If you use a Windows server it requires a license that might be needed elsewhere and regular maintenance. If you want a Linux or Unix server it can be challenging to understand and setup. And once setup, the backups are rarely monitored to ensure they are viable and easily accessible.

While on the surface it may seem like backups should be a simple task they can be more challenging than expected. The SFTP requirement of many Cisco servers can provide additional challenges. Issues that can arise:
- Onsite solutions are great if your only issue could ever be the server failing
- What if the server room catches fire? or a flood? A major concern as our climate changes
Storage capacity can sometimes become an issue
Availability of the service can be an issue when the service is running as a tertiary service on a server with a different primary role
Ciphers can change from server to server and from version to version rendering a backup solution incompatible
Regular checks on whether backups are running successfully can be overlooked
- Storage capacity can sometimes become an issue
Maintenance issues, although relatively minor, require attention to address and often are not addressed. When they are addressed, they are often in a compromised state for a long time before the issues are repaired.
