What is Cloud Backup and How does it work?
In an organization’s data center, a backup application copies data and stores it on different media or another storage system for easy access in the event of a recovery situation. While there are multiple options and approaches to off-site backup, cloud backup serves as the off-site facility for many organizations.
When a company engages a cloud backup services, the first step is to complete a full backup of the data that needs to be protected. This initial backup can sometimes take days to finish uploading over a network as a result of the large volume of data that is being transferred. In a ‘3-2-1’ backup strategy where an organization has three copies of data on two different media, at least one copy of the backed up data should be send to an off-site backup facility so that it is accessible even if on-site systems are unavailable. One thing to note is that a key feature of the cloud backup is restoration, your data can be restored anywhere from nearly any kind of computer even if the data center is unavailable.
