Cloud Back up

Cloud Back up

Cloud backup, also known as online backup, is a strategy for backing up data that involves sending a copy of the data over a proprietary or public network to an off-site server. The server is usually hosted by a third-party service provider, who charges the backup customer a fee based on capacity, bandwidth or number of users. In the enterprise, the off-site server might be owned by the company, but the chargeback method would be similar.

Implementing cloud data backup can help bolster an organization's data protection strategy without increasing the workload on information technology staff.
