8 Reasons Why You Should Back Up Your Data on the Cloud

As organizations generate unprecedented quantities of data, they are faced with an ever-growing challenge – how to store and manage this data. As one of the most valuable assets for any business, data needs to be properly stored, protected, backed up, and made available to organizations as and when required. As IT budgets are tight, and most organizations are looking at consolidation rather than expansion, it does not make sense to increase infrastructure investment for data backup.

With data backup, recovery, and restore options maturing over the last decade, the cloud has become more secure, reliable, and cost effective. Organizations no longer need to worry about the safety of their business data.

Here are some key advantages that cloud backup can offer:

1.      Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) - There is no need to spend on expanding your current IT infrastructure because a cloud backup, recovery, and restore mechanism operates within your existing infrastructure. The backup software integrates with various IT environments to locate and prioritize files forn backup and securely transmits encrypted copies of these files to offsite data centers. This reduces the cost of ownership as compared to purchase and maintenance of complex tape backup systems.

2.      Improved Reliability and Faster Recovery - A backup solution is effective only to the extent of its speed and reliability in recovering and restoring data. A cloud
backup and recovery solution instantly restores data including individual files irrespective of your location. Each business can establish Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) in light of their needs.


3.      Enhanced Security During File Transfer - Files selected for backup are encrypted before transmission to a cloud vault. They remain encrypted till the time they reach their destination. The decryption key resides only with the customer. This mechanism makes cloud backup superior to unencrypted, on-premise data backup
and recovery systems.


4.      Decreased Cost of Operations - Once you select a backup schedule, your data is saved automatically. This “set it and forget it" model reduces operational
and administrative management for data backup.


5.      Efficient Use of IT Resources - A cloud backup, recovery, and restore solution allows your business to redirect IT resources to cater to more important challenges or strategic initiatives within your organization. The built-in scalability of cloud backup grows and changes with your business data environment.

6.      Stronger Safety Measures – A cloud backup provider engages multiple data centers that are geographically diverse and offers backup solutions that are more reliable than tape backup.

7.      Data Protection for Endpoint Devices - More and more corporate data is managed across smartphones, tablets and laptops. Cloud-based data solutions enable you to maintain a backup of your data on a central repository which ensures data safety even if you lose these devices. With
capabilities like geolocation and remote wipe, cloud backup enhances corporate data security and prevents data loss.


8.      Protection for Data Born in the Cloud - Traditional data protection solutions cannot backup and recover data created in SaaS-based applications, which are used increasingly because of easy deployment and cost-effectiveness. Cloud backup protects this data against loss and outage.

Conclusion:
With cloud backup, organizations can outsource their backup to a managed service provider who specializes in data backup and protection while offering latest advances in security, encryption, deduplication, disaster recovery, and continuous real-time data protection. This approach helps organizations eliminate various aches and pains involved in data backup without losing control of their most
valuable asset.  With secure data backup and protection technologies delivered through the cloud, organizations can reap benefits of improved data recovery speed and faster access to archived data, not only saving money and resources but also improving performance and gaining efficiencies.

Hi,Data in the cloud is ten times more secure than at home. Data centers have tight security policies, fire protection, electricity generators and strict firewalls. The challenge here is not with the cloud but with people who work with it. Strong passwords, internal procedures and common sense are necessary for a complete protection of your data. <a href="https://www.cloudendure.com/blog/9-steps-to-make-amazon-rds-work-cloud-disaster-recovery/">disaster recovery amazon</a>
