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

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.
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.
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
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.

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
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:
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
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.
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
