Why Use A Cloud Backup?
Why Is Cloud Backup Important
Cloud backup is important because it provides a secure secondary OFFSITE facility for your data. Should you ever have a disaster in your primary office, you're still protected.
Ask yourself this question, “What would happen if I had a fire, flood, theft or vandalism in my office that damaged my main server, as well as, my backup. How would my company cope?" If this scenario would be disastrous to your company, then a cloud backup component is absolutely recommended. In the event something happened to your office, you could still recover your files and data.
Do I Still Need A Local Backup
The primary advantage to a local ONSITE backup server is SPEED. Today's networks operate at gigabit speeds which are lighting fast compared to the speed of your internet connection. As such, doing things such as, bare-metal-restores or large file backups, can be expedited by running over your local network vs. your internet connection.
