Backing Up Data to the Public Cloud

Cloud backup refers to the backup of data transferred over the internet utilizing offsite storage on cloud-based servers, which allow data to be accessed on demand via the internet from cloud computing service providers. Backing up to cloud destinations has become a critical piece of an organization’s strategy to continually and automatically protect their critical data. But while the cloud provides a cost-effective layer of protection, it should not be relied upon alone to protect the data that keeps a business running.
