Data is now the lifeblood of any company. Keeping it safe is just as important as protecting any other asset. Performing regular file backups helps prevent loss in the event of an accident or disaster.
The need to modernise file backups
Traditional methods of performing file backups present a major problem – remembering to perform the backup itself. Taking data offsite for maximum protection relies on copying it to a transportable medium, usually a tape or a portable hard drive. But each of these methods also requires someone to physically remove and attach equipment every day, easily forgotten when busy.
Using a Cloud-based backup service, like LiveDrive from Broadband Cloud Solutions, helps simplify the process by doing away with the need to change tapes and drives. Using a small application that runs continuously in the background, syncing changes to your Cloud file storage provider automatically. In this way, every change made to your data is copied immediately, so that should a local disaster strike, you have everything saved up until that moment.
Cloud-based backup solutions also allow you to access your data anyplace, anytime. So if the localised disaster, such as a flood, means you cannot return to the office for any period of time, you can resume work from any place that has an Internet connection – or even from a smartphone!
