Why backup online?

Conventional backup solutions are not enough

Traditional backup solutions have low ROI for businesses today. They are costly, inefficient, inflexible and time consuming. Poor “unstructured” conventional backup methodologies, such as tape, CD-ROM and external hard drives are simply inadequate for a host of reasons:

  • High failure rates during restore operations
  • Slow read / write speed
  • Difficulty in detecting backup problems before performing a restore
  • Problems finding the data that needs to be restored
  • High maintenance cost
  • Expensive off-site storage of tape libraries
  • Inflexibility of fixed capacity backup media
  • High risk of negligence-induced problems (e.g. lost or misplaced data)

Online backup is the standard data protection method for successful businesses today because it’s the only solution that addresses all of these issues. It offers all the capability and flexibility to handle the whole process of data backup efficiently and effectively. It has all the backup and recovery capabilities seen in D2D backups, but stores your data off-site by default, thereby being able to fully protect your data. Even if the original infrastructure is unavailable due to a catastrophic failure, you can recover your critical documents instantly through a secure web interface.
