Data Recovery – Online Backup or Online Storage?
With almost all information stored digitally these days, having a secure, reliable back up for data recovery not only makes practical sense but in some cases, is a legal requirement. Ideally, the backup should be located away from the original source to protect against natural disasters, fire, theft, malicious software, hacking attack or hardware failure. Never underestimate the human element, accidental or intentional, a lot of problems have been caused historically by human error or a disgruntled employee. Backing up your data to the cloud is the most common, modern way of protecting yourself. So what is the difference between online back up and online storage? Which do you need for peace of mind or do you need both? Hopefully our article will help you understand data recovery.
The difference explained
Online backup is designed to provide you with a full replica of your data so your business can be back up and running, with as little downtime as possible, should a disaster occur or systems become compromised. Online storage allows you to store pictures, sync and share files and achieve access to individual files from multiple devices. Although online storage has a level of security, specialised data backup providers have much more robust systems in place. So if your concern is for preserving data and valuable files in a safe and secure environment, you don’t use a facility that has been designed to be accessed, synchronised and shared. Although they have many similarities, data recovery resources are clearly very different than data storage solutions.
