Cloud backup could be great option for SMBs

Every company now likely has a certain amount of essential data they keep online, and IT professional John Dryden said on Small Business UK that cloud backup could be a great option for these organizations.

"Now it's possible to effectively rent a backup system from a cloud provider," he wrote. "This lessens the need for big capital expenditure and allows for easy upgrading and downsizing, depending on fluctuations within your business. There are many options available for those looking into 'cloud' backup, with varying levels of coverage depending on the needs of the business."

Any way a company goes, it is essential to use a package that will cover real-time protection for an organization without adding big costs. The provider should certainly have a system that is more complex and larger than the business' network. This backup system will work as something of an insurance policy in case something bad happens with the first-string copies of the information, allowing organizations to continue work without worry and with ease.

TechRadar said before adopting any kind of online data backup solution, organizations need to do a data audit and make sure they know what features they need. There can be many options, including on-site data backup, cloud backup and a mix of on-premise and online.
