Backup and Data Protection
Setting Up Secure Backup and Data Protection Just Got Easier
With the volume of data growing at an exponential rate worldwide, backup and data protection has become more difficult than ever. As traditional methods, such as tape libraries and secondary sites, fall behind, many organizations are looking to the cloud for safe and protected storage offsite. Cloud backup and data protection allows for instant scaling, with no need to wait for storage media, such as tapes or discs. It also reduces costs of both data storage and recovery.

Much, if not all, of this could have been avoided with proper attention to backup and data protection.”Liquid Web
Storing your data in a cloud environment has many benefits, including:
- Convenience: Cloud backup is available from anywhere with an Internet connection, so there is no need to proactively save, label and track information. You can concentrate solely on your work without worrying about data loss.
- Safety: Physical damage (fire, flood, earthquake, etc.) is minimized, as your data is stored on secure, encrypted servers and systems.
- Access: You can easily access your data from anywhere, at any time.
- Affordability: Without the need for tapes, discs or other physical media, the cost of cloud storage is extremely affordable. While many businesses cannot afford an entire data center, cloud storage is available to virtually everyone.
- Recovery: In the event that some of your data is lost, backups are available and easily located. Multiple levels of redundancy ensure that your data is there whenever you need it.
