Data backup as a service may not be the most exciting aspect of a business but it definitely is one of the most crucial ones to watch out for. These processes are necessary for an organisation to protect preserve and manage information in order to meet security recovery and regulatory demands. Ignoring it could put businesses at jeopardy. Decision making from key analysis and processes can be disrupted when data has been altered.

Also its important to keep in mind that the hype over digital transformation is growing because IT trends are moving towards modernization of data infrastructure. For example, a CEO of a company today needs access to his or her data on the go by only tapping on their mobile phone. An efficient data backup and recovery strategy does not just facilitate new data driven insights, but also streamlines management processes and allows for better collaboration. Cloud has the potential and has shown results, but it is our responsibility to make proper use of it to get desired results.

Why Backup your Data?

Cloud brings immense opportunities reducing product cycles and modernising todays workforce. Given their lack of in-house IT expert and smaller budgets, SMEs can be capital averse if they don't have access to tech that is cost effective and easy to use.

The Small and medium businesses, for example are the ideal segment for growth as emerging technologies will find their direction from pilot business models. The SMB segment and startup sector which is growing currently needs and deserves the same level of quality found in the data backup and recovery systems of the enterprise counterparts.

Companies today, large and small alike are now able to adopt enterprise cloud backup solutions to protect and restore data that resides on devices and across the cloud applications. Ransomware incidents are rising, and old-school architecture of data systems are faced with the need to quickly respond to such threats. This is critical to business continuity and easy access to data whenever necessary with the right people accessing them.

Which is why businesses now must become familiar with their data requirements such as which data to backup, how fast you want it to back it up and restore as well as how often you would want to back it up.

Rise of DBaaS: Advantages

There is constantly something new on the plates of service providers now that makes the lives of enterprises and product managers a lot easier. Service providers have made cloud easy to afford and overcome issues is the areas such as general cloud patterns, hybrid cloud, cloud evolution and how the services model can be taken advantage of to make these solutions available faster to the end user. In this light Data Backup and recovery as a service has emerged as a winner for businesses across the spectrum.

This approach provides systems access to private, public or hybrid clouds but also lowers cost and eliminates the admins worst nightmare i.e. a lost backup. The model is designed to take data backups from the hands of the local admin to the ones of a professional service, resulting in a higher level of assurance that data is correctly being backed up.

A few top advantages:

Quick and easy restoration of lost files: Companies that do not have an endpoint backup solution backup up their data inconsistently and irregularly. This is enough time for data to get lost, stolen and recovery is just a pain. Whereas with a backup service on the cloud, end point users have quick access to the files lost and can focus on the work without losing something more valuable than data- time

Regulation compliant across countries: IT teams are required to be allowed to be compliant to the ever changing data privacy requirements across geographies. In a connected world, availability of your data across time zones is what keep the business running. Thus once specifying the data that can be accessed for office locations across the globe, companies can save a lot of time avoiding strict regulatory violations and focus on growing a scalable business.

Better control over costs: When a laptop gets lost, the true loss is not of the device itself, despite being important, but it is of the data that gets lost with it. Backing up data on the cloud avoids such gathered costs over time and reduces this cost in the form of uptime, restored data, and business continuity.
