Backing Up to the cloud is your best option

The cloud is an important and resourceful business tool that can help organization and productivity. However, some business professionals question the security of the cloud – especially in an environment of ever-evolving cyber threats. Rest assured that the cloud is an effective and secure way of storing your business data – especially your data backups!

Your Tape Backup is Outdated.
A tape backup is a data storage device that reads and writes data on a magnetic tape. For most small to medium sized businesses, tape backups are still utilized. If you’re still relying on your tape backup, chances are your system is incompetent compared to new and emerging backup solutions. If your staff forgets to set your backup to occur every night, you’re running the risk of losing your daily critical data – all due to human error and negligence. Take a backup using tape is a very resource and labor-intensive procedure that can’t be done during business hours.

The Cloud is Superior.
A cloud-based backup solution provides several qualities that an outdated tape backup cannot present. Cloud backup solutions are capable of automatic snapshots of your critical business data. Since this completely eliminates the possibility of human error or negligence, you not only save time but precious business resources. Your network can benefit from the reduced strain of a long backup process by taking multiple backups throughout eth day, rather than one huge backup that can cause an increase in downtime and a decrease in productivity. Cloud backups will track file changes and backup new files as they become available.
