What is Cloud Data Backup?
Cloud data backup is the result of copying or archiving files and folders for the purpose of being able to restore them in case of data loss. Data loss can be caused by many things ranging from computer viruses to hardware failures to file corruption to fire, flood, or theft
This involves sending a copy of the data over a proprietary or public network to an off-site server. To protect your files you need to back them up, and keeping your backups offsite is the best way to ensure their safety. Cloud backup has been tested to help you keep your data safe.
Cloud and Backup Solutions
Any business can fall victim to the forces of nature. Whether it’s a blaze that burns through your office, or a flash flood that sends water coursing through your server room, disasters can hit at any time, and the most likely casualty is your data.
You can beat the odds by designing a backup plan that protects against worst-case scenarios.It’s a fact of modern life that archiving data is essential to prevent a data disaster. Still, something like one-third of computers are never backed up.
In place of the traditional technique of storing backups on an external hard drive, an increasingly popular remedy is to use an online backup service that saves the data on servers in the cloud. You don’t need any extra hardware and once it’s been set up, the system can automatically do the deed when the computer is idle.
Backing up your files is vital. Imagine, you simply lose all your precious photos, documents, personal and business files. It’s not a question if but when data loss is going to happen to you if you’re not protected.
