3 Reasons Why Your Business Should Utilize Automated Cloud Backups

3 Reasons Why Your Business Should Utilize Automated Cloud Backups

Data backup is something that some organizations think they can do without, simply because they believe that it’s only valuable to have in the event that something wrong happens. Well, we’re here to break the bad news that if something can go wrong, it most likely will go wrong… at least at some point. With automated cloud backups, however, the chances of some unexpected emergency ending your business are drastically reduced.

We’ll give you three good reasons to utilize an automated cloud backup system; we think you’ll find them too good to pass up.

Complete Redundancy

One of the biggest benefits of cloud-based backup comes from the fact that redundancy is a priority. You may have heard of the 3-2-1 rule, but we’ll give you a refresher just in case. The idea is that you have three backups of your data total: one stored on-site for ease of recovery and two stored in secure remote locations, one of which is located in the cloud for, again, ease of recovery. With this kind of redundancy, it’s easy to see why automated cloud-based backups are such a valuable asset for any future-minded business.

Minimal Downtime

The entire purpose of a data backup is to be deployable in the event of a disaster, and when one of these hits your business, time is of the essence. You can’t afford to wait around for a tape backup to get delivered and painstakingly restored while your office gets back into proper working order, if it can be done at all. Cloud-based data backups can be deployed at a moment’s notice with minimal downtime, allowing your organization to maintain a specified level of operations until everything else gets situated.

Less Uncertainty

One of the biggest issues with traditional tape backup is that it heavily relies on your users setting it. Basically, if someone forgets to set it, or does it incorrectly, then that day’s worth of progress is potentially at risk of being lost for good. This is the biggest benefit of automated backups, as you are not relying on someone doing their job perfectly to make sure your business can survive a disaster. Automated backups occur at specified intervals throughout the workday, so you can know with certainty that your business’ data is protected should a disaster strike.
