Why you should backup your server to the Cloud

Why you should backup your server to the Cloud

posted in Product ● 1 Jul 2011

As a general rule, its thoroughly important to always back up your data onto your server at all times to protect your information from getting lost. This is another reason as to why having cloud storage is so beneficial. It does all the hard work for you. For example, if you are a company who holds information on behalf of other companies – eg, you are hosting websites for clients and or have a social media site containing information posted by its users. Those people as your clients depend on you to keep their information safe. If anything were to go wrong then you would be satisfied in knowing that you have the cloud backing up your lost data. It’s easily accessible and you don’t have to worry about changing your local storage device if you or your company moves location. Cloud backups cost little but you can save a lot when backing your server up to the cloud. Having your backups ready also helps you in making your data migration easier. If you plan to move your data from old to a new server at the same location but on a different server, the cloud backup will save you both time and money. Most web hosting providers will say that their dedicated servers are fully secured. You should be prepared for such instances as you will never know what will happen. This is why having your server backed onto the cloud is so beneficial because you could literally re-connect to the internet on another pc and pick up where you left off.
