For many enterprises, the choice between cloud backup and local backup is important.
What exactly is cloud backup?
A cloud backup service is used by businesses to backup their system, apps, and data to a remote cloud-based server. This server may be private or public. Larger corporations may have the resources and funding to operate a private cloud backup system, but smaller organizations are more likely to employ a public cloud storage solution that supports numerous tenants. The infrastructure is not required with a public cloud backup service.
The benefits of cloud backups far exceed the drawbacks, which is why many businesses back up their data to the cloud.
Save money and resources. The cost of using cloud backup is less than the cost of operating an on-premises backup system. Your company does not need to buy or maintain hardware or software, nor does it need to seek clearance for a capital acquisition. Instead, you pay a subscription fee, which is classified as an operational expense.
If a cybercriminal attacks your on-premises systems. Your data will be safe. Attackers frequently delete or tamper with local backups in addition to corrupting or destroying production data. Having remote offsite backups in the cloud protects that data.
Scalability. Cloud services can be scaled without the need for additional hardware or software. Scaling cloud services, on the other hand, is simple and can be done on demand - albeit your subscription price will most certainly increase correspondingly.
Data can be accessed from any location. You may access your backed-up data from anywhere, at any time, if you have an internet connection. While restoring a full backup from a cloud backup can take some time, downloading just a few files from the cloud is quick and simple.
Improved data security. Some may argue that public cloud backups are less secure than local data backups. However, for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that may not have a cyber security expert on board, a seasoned cloud provider can provide superior security.
