When it comes to conversations around cloud backup, the question we get asked most often is "how easy is it to move to the cloud?" Wonderfully, in most cases, the answer is that it is very simple, quick and easy. It is usually a case of installing the software and setting the backup to run – and this can be completed in hours.
We can backup servers (including SQL database servers and Exchange emails servers) and NAS drives with ease.
In a more complex setup with over three servers, then more thought and planning may be required. Plus, cloud isn’t just handy when backing up data, but can also help in an emergency as you can have your servers in the cloud ready to fire up in an emergency.
So, why would you want to move to cloud backup? We find that there are several compelling reasons why you would want to move to online backup over onsite backup:
• Reliability - You need a reliable offsite backup (or your insurer or clients do), and the existing onsite solution isn’t working reliably.
• Time - You and your team are wasting time swapping tapes or drives and taking them offsite.
• Reporting – You are assuming your existing backup system is working, but you’re not 100% sure. The reporting you’d receive with cloud backup would give you certainty.
