Do You Protect Your Data with Cloud Computer Backup?

A bride recently called into a talk radio station to share her sad tale.  Trying to save money on her wedding by using friends and family wherever possible; she recruited a friend to take her wedding photos.  Unfortunately, it’s been weeks since the honeymoon, and the friend has not returned phone calls or emails, and the bride suspects that her photos have been irretrievably lost.

Small businesses often make the mistake of having non-existent or insufficient backup protocols and backup policies.  Tape and CD-backup systems are costly, and they require someone to change the media and transport the media off-site in case of damage to the facility.  Small business owners are often too busy running the daily demands of the business, and many people simply make the faulty assumption that “it can never happen to them.”  They never take the time to deploy a cloud computer backup solution.

However, as one auto insurance company likes to remind us, mayhem can appear at any time, and there’s no way to predict when disaster can strike.  That bride’s friend probably never dreamed that the data might be lost, and both the bride and her friend are devastated at the loss of something so irreplaceable.

Cloud computer backup protocols save time and money, and help ensure that your data is redundantly stored off-site.  By automatically backing up your data in the cloud, you virtually guarantee that data can be quickly and efficiently restored.  Never risk losing your precious data, or the work product that you’ve created for your customer.

Cloud backup is affordable, scalable, and automatic.  You can design backup protocols for long-term archives, as well as data that changes on a regular basis.  Instead of investing in tapes and CDs which are used up or wear out, you can reuse space in the cloud indefinitely.  As your needs grow, you can simply increase the size of your backups. And perhaps best of all, you can automate the entire process, freeing up your employees from daily execution and storage of your backups.
