Data Backup for Business
With cloud (Offsite) backup, your organization has a resource to provide a two-tier backup system…local (OnSite) and cloud (OffSite). This brings peace of mind knowing your data is backed up in an additional location should a disaster occur.
It’s important to keep a copy of files offsite. Even if business files are backed up on a file server, a disaster or theft could destroy the computers and backups. Having a cloud backup solution ensures data is safe even if a disaster occurs at your office.
Here are a few other benefits of utilizing cloud backup:
Data protection: With cloud backup, you are assured your data is protected and can be recovered. Since cloud backup offers industry-leading encryption and security practices, cloud base backup is secure.
Ease of use: Cloud solutions generally have a user friendly interface. Since cloud solutions have minimal installation requirements, there is little maintenance needed.
Agility and scalability: Since it is cloud-based, increasing or decreasing your storage capacity should be done seamlessly.
Automatic: Files are backed up to the cloud automatically with an Internet connection in place. No need to interact with the user interface once the initial set up is complete or you need to add or remove files from your backup.
OnSite backup offers a second tier to your cloud (OffSite) backup solution. OnSite storage entails storing important data on a local storage device, such as external hard drives or DVDs. OnSite backup offers immediate access to data and does not require internet access; thus, back up is still possible should internet service go down.
To have peace of mind knowing your data is being backed up, then implementing an onsite-offsite solution is a great step. By having both backup solutions in place, you can rest assured that your data is safe.
