The concept of the cloud has been around for decades, and it has proven itself to be an asset for protecting business backups. However, the cloud alone will not be enough to ensure your backups are secured.

Cloud services require an Internet connection to operate. There are many types of disasters capable of disrupting your internet access, and if one brings down your systems entirely, your cloud backup may not be as advantageous anymore. It’s also important to pick the solution that’s going to be the best fit for your needs.

Rather than relying on the cloud alone to protect your data, follow the 3-2-1 rule: three backup copies, using two different mediums, with one stored off-site. For more on protecting your backups, check out NovaStor today!
