Backup In The Cloud

Cloud Backup

As we move further into the Information Age, data has emerged as one of an enterprise’s most valuable assets. We access and input data now more than ever before, and its assistance and convenience help everyone from scientists to entrepreneurs in their day-to-day dealings. Unfortunately, data protection has historically been a reactionary process, and oftentimes companies don’t invest in the proper backup and recovery procedures until it’s far too late.

We often think of data loss in terms of hacks and breaches, but data can be lost through less malicious (but still costly) means as well. Natural disasters and operational losses are the forerunners of accidental data loss, with human error trailing not too far behind. System downtime as a result of data loss can not only cost your company time and money, but it also risks your company reputation and trust with customers, partners, and even employees - which at the heart of it, are invaluable.

 

The following infographic outlines what’s at stake for companies who risk data protection by only storing their information locally. Fortunately, there is good news: backup data can easily be stored and recovered through the utilization of virtual servers, which most cloud hosting services provide. The other good news? Most companies now recognize the need for a backup plan, and either already implementing one or plan to implement one in the coming years.
