Cloud Backup Solutions are ideal for organisations that have valuable data and:
Even if you are not worried about theft, fire, water damage or natural disaster, on-premise data backup on PCs, servers and other fixed or mobile storage devices can be short-sighted and unwise. Hardware can and will fail - it's only a matter of time. Your onsite data backups need to be complemented by an off-site solution, such as cloud backups.
Use Disk/Tape Drives for Data Backups
Traditional methods of off-site backups are great, but they involve manual, labour-intensive processes. They rely on someone to remember to take periodic backups, remember which tape/disk to use, on what day or time, and require testing to ensure backups are working. On top of this, all your data becomes mobile and can attract risk of loss or damage in transit.
Have No Data Backup & Recovery Plan
Its the old adage: fail to plan and you plan to fail. The value of your data is derived from the amount of time, effort and money expended in collecting or developing it. Do not skimp on the final step, set up cloud backups and avoid becoming one of those desperate customers who say "I will pay anything, just retrieve my data" - after the data is lost forever.
Need Secure Encrypted Remote Data Duplication
While the convenience and security of an automated cloud backup solution is self evident, the encryption process goes a little unnoticed. There are many organisations required by law to ensure data is encrypted so that it is not exploited if it falls in the wrong hands. Unlike many other backup methods, cloud backups incorporate encryption as a standard feature so that compliance and security are assured.
