Why Your Business Should Use Cloud Data Backup

Computer ServicesCloud backup

Cloud backup is the use of a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data, rather than a local server or personal computer. In more basic terms, it’s a way to automatically backup all of your important data onto the internet to protect against losing your important documents.

Why you should backup

Trusting physical backup to protect all of your important documents is dangerous. You might think your computer, phone or tablet is reliable, but in reality, it’s not. Everything fails, just think of what you could lose if it happens to you. Family videos, photos, financial documents, business emails and anything else you have would be lost forever. You might think it’s not going to happen to you, but why take the chance? Not to mention he average cost of down time and data loss is $159,331 per year.

What devices to backup

Everything from your computer and laptop to your tablet, phone and even your IPod should be backed up to ensure the safety of your important documents.

Benefits of cloud backup

  1. Data protection: Cloud backup assures your data is recoverable and protected.
  2. Save money: With cloud backup there is no need to buy or install expensive equipment and you won’t have to spend thousands on data recovery if a disaster happens.
  3. Speedy recovery: Cloud backup recovery systems instantly recover and restore data.

Different types of data backup

Back Bay Networks offers a range of customizable backup options to help protect against data loss. Here are a few of the options available to you:

  • Local Backup – import files onto an external hard drive each time a new document is created
  • Offsite Backup – Automatic backup managed by Back Bay Networks
  • Cloud Backup – Automatically backup files to the internet

Information Technology? Sounds boring…

In the opinion of most people, yeah you’re right. But not at Back Bay Networks. Here, information technology is our job, our passion, and yes sadly…our life. And since this is our life, we’d like to share some interesting facts from the technology world that I bet you didn’t know:

Did you know: Just one gigabyte (GB) of computer memory is equivalent to storing a stack of documents that would reach around the height of an average two story house. The average computer has around 100 GB of memory.

Did you know: The processor in the first Apple computer is 1,000 times slower than today’s Apple IPad.

Did you know: It would take 1,000,000 human brains to store all of the information on the internet.

Did you know: Computers will eliminate the human race by year 2015. (Just kidding, but maybe someday….)

Information technology is pretty fascinating and often very complex. For any of your computer and IT issues please reach out to us, we’d be happy answer any questions or set up a time for a free onsite consultation.
