Bad Backup: How Pixar Almost Lost an Entire Film

Written by Matthew Zaroff

Pixar, known for CG Animated films like Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and Up, produced a short video about how they almost lost Toy Story 2 due to a simple linux command and faulty backup.

As said in the video, it would have taken 20-30 people a full year to recreate the work lost in 20 seconds, but the biggest lesson learned is that your company backup solution isn't flawless. Your backup solution needs to be tested regularly to ensure that it is there and ready when you need it. Data integrity is everything to us at NetOps - our backup solutions are easy to test and we ensure testing is done regularly.
