Benefits & Advantages

File Transfer Security

Files are encrypted before they are transmitted to an offsite data center. Hackers will be unable to penetrate these files and they will be securely sent from your server to the data center.

Reliability

The use of a cloud backup offers the best protection available and is much more reliable than other backup data and recovery services. You can quickly restore lost data at any time or location.

Low cost

The use of cloud services provides a low-cost solution for file protection. Losing valuable data can become costly and time-consuming. Cloud technology allows your organization to restore data, which ultimately helps your company reduce costs.

Scalability

You can store as much or as little information as you need, and you only pay for what you use.

Disadvantages

  • You can’t access your data if you don’t have Internet access.
  • Bandwidth issues – You need the right amount of bandwidth to back up large chunks of data.
  • Full data recovery could take some time – It is fast and easy to recover small quantities of data. But full recoveries could eat up some time and stress the local systems.
