Backing up data the smart way.
Not all data was created equal. If your backup is generic and lacks a refined strategy, then you might be paying out to store data that lacks clear business value. Backup up the smart way, saving only what you need, when you need it.
Advanced Cloud Backup Services.
Like Neapolitan ice cream, cloud backup has three flavours: backing up on-premises data using cloud storage for the secondary copy (sometime called online backup), backing up cloud-resident data within the cloud (aka cloud-to-cloud backup), and thirdly backing up cloud-resident data to on-premises storage.
Cloud Storage as a Backup Solution.
More and more businesses are selecting to backup to cloud-based storage instead of setting up a physical disaster recovery (DR) site, with the global cloud backup market growing at over 12% annually.
Using cloud storage for data backup has several benefits, not least the flexibility of being scaled up or down according to changing needs. Of course, performance will depend on speed and latency of the connections to the cloud and costs must be visible – pay-as-you-use contracts can get out of control unless closely monitored.

Why Aren’t You Using Cloud Backup?
There is a common misconception that public cloud services like Microsoft 365 don’t need to have a backup, but this a risky assumption.
Many SaaS applications like M365 operate under a shared responsibility mode – Microsoft ensures physical security in their data centres, maintains the infrastructure but the company is very clear that its your data and your responsibility to protect it.
Running backups in the cloud, but storing the data on-premises is the opposite take on cloud backup where the cloud is the primary copy and on-site storage is the secondary. This approach gives you total control over the ownership of your backed-up data.
Today, the cloud offers greater efficiency for IT, more reliability for the business, and improved security for data.
On top of the cloud’s security and scale benefits, consolidating workflows such as backup and disaster recovery in the cloud can save organizations anywhere from one-half to one-third of their costs. Our experienced consultants can work with your team to identify all the challenges surrounding your data environment.
