In this guide, we’ll reveal proven strategies to make your Salesforce backups highly cost-effective, so you can maximize your budget while safeguarding your critical business information.

What Makes Salesforce Backups Expensive

The cost of Salesforce backup solutions varies depending on the provider and the features included. However, the cost of not having a backup can be far greater in the event of data loss or downtime. 
But if your Salesforce backup methods are asking you to rethink beyond the necessity index, then you are probably stuck with these –

  • Spending dollars on Salesforce backups but questions its availability
  • Purchased external platforms to store backup data
  • Paid extra for encryption control to protect your Salesforce backups
  • Troubled thinking retrieval from backup repositories can incur additional charges & complexities
  • Still relying on Sandbox refresh to backup your Salesforce metadata
  • Current Salesforce backup methods miss out on your files
  • Facing scalability challenges at large as backup storage may entail significant expenses
  • The current backup vendor is too rigid and does not provide sufficient accessibility to ensure 100% ownership and control over your Salesforce backups, making it difficult to exercise your data subject rights.

You are not the only one. It has been a potential challenge for many Salesforce users where they have an overwhelming choice to backup their org data, but could not decide on ‘one’ that would be the magic for you!
The reason is that you have opted for a cheaper option for Salesforce backups which has ended up in a headache instead of giving a peace of mind. Before you decide to implement a backup solution, evaluate the current solution’s cost, or renew your backup license for your current backup vendor, DataArchiva can cash in some confidence and ease your already strained backup budget for Salesforce.
