After local backup, cloud backup is a crucial secondary backup location. Any reputable Niko Computers IT Support member will insist on backing up your data to the Cloud. This is absolutely necessary to protect your data in the event of Ransomware and, most importantly, natural disasters such as fires or flooding.
Do not think it will not happen. Turn on the news almost any day, and you will see buildings and businesses destroyed by fires, floods… Only reliable Cloud Backups ensure that data can be retrieved and restored and keep companies in business. It is your insurance policy.
Usually, the Cloud retains fewer copies of your files and should not be casually used for recovery due to slower internet speeds than your local network. This should only be used to retrieve data in case of a major emergency or disaster. Think of it as your offsite vault.
These are the most common, but new ‘Cloud Companies’ pop up daily, with varying degrees of reliability and ‘staying power’. Arranging cloud backups should be relegated to a Managed IT Services company or even an independent IT services ‘Guy’.
