Online Backup Alternatives

Have you ever lost important data, photos, documents or programs that you had acquired over a period? In the past, we did not have feasible alternatives. We relied on floppy diskettes, external hard drives, flash drives or the hard drive itself. If you have ever had a failure of your hard drive, flash drive or external hard drive you will appreciate these services. There are now alternatives and never again lose that important data.

VaultScape is one of the innovators in this field. It allows you to back up your data to their servers. When you hear the term Cloud backup, you assume it goes somewhere in outer space. This is a misnomer because you are actually sending it to a secure server that uses encryption to protect your data.

Cloud Backup may seem expensive in the beginning, but it also serves as disaster recovery solution. Disaster recovery as a service is relatively new. In the past, it would have required an expert to recover your data. Disaster Recovery as a Service can possibly save businesses millions in the future. Businesses need to ask themselves how important is their data. With data backed up in the cloud, they have the peace of mind that it is safe. Numerous s companies provide this service. VaultScape is a leader in this field. Cost versus convenience is a factor in choosing a service.

Online Backup also known as Cloud storage is data that is remotely stored on a server owned by a backup service. It has advantages and disadvantages some of which I will briefly discuss. Advantages that I have personally experienced have been beneficial. If you have ever had a virus on your hard drive and had to reformat it, cloud storage makes sit easy and convenient. You are also able to access the files remotely from any PC, laptop or tablet. How convenient can that be? You are also able to share files with others. One of the main disadvantages you might experience would be with bandwidth. If you have to share large files, this can be a disadvantage to you.

Whether you decide to use, a cloud-based service is a matter of personal choice. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
