Any threat to your data is a threat to your business. Cloud backup is a strategy for backing up data that replicates your data to an offsite managed service provider for protection. This solution can either replace or complement on-premise backups.
Cloud backup solutions enable enterprises or individuals to backup and store their data over the Internet using a secure connection, rather than storing the data locally on a physical disk, such as a hard drive or tape backup. Let’s face it—physical backup devices can fail, and physical disasters can happen. Having your data replicated in a remote location gives you peace of mind, knowing your data is safe, secure, and accessible in the event of a disaster. Add more advanced data replication options, such as Geo-Redundant Storage (GRS) and Geo-Zone-Redundant Storage (GZRS), and your risk of data loss and ability to recover quickly increases dramatically.
Our Azure Storage and Backup solutions always store multiple copies of your data so it is protected from planned & unplanned events, including hardware failures, network or power outages, and catastrophic manmade and natural disasters. Data redundancy ensures that your storage account is extremely risk-tolerant , even in the face of failures.
When deciding which redundancy option is best for your business, consider the tradeoffs between lower costs and higher availability and durability. Factors for which redundancy option you should choose include:
