How Can I Ensure My Company’s Data is Available When and Where I Need It While Being Stored Offsite in a Cloud?
As you know, your company continues to assume liability for data security, even when shifting backup responsibility to a cloud backup service provider. It is therefore reasonable to expect that your service provider will enable you to continue to keep a local copy of your most recent backups in case you get disconnected from the cloud—this is essential to minimize downtime.
An ideal cloud backup service provider will also need to demonstrate that it has multiple data centers in order to ensure your data will be protected by an appropriate amount of infrastructure redundancy. These data centers should be geographically diverse in order to increase reliability in case of a natural disaster or power outage. Unlike tape storage, which is usually stored off-site at an average distance of 50-100 miles, cloud backup allows a company to securely store their data virtually anywhere.
Our clients can rest assured knowing that an up-to-date Disaster Recovery Plan and Business Continuity Plan is in place to handle a variety of contingencies. Information technology is a vital component of the modern business and fast, accurate data recovery is essential to keep you moving forward.
