Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between cloud storage and cloud backup?
Cloud backup refers to tools that protect your data, files and system from a catastrophic event like ransomware or theft. Cloud storage refers to tools that let you free up space on your device by having copies of some files saved to the cloud.
How do cloud backups work?
Cloud backup for business operates by copying and storing your server’s files to a server in a different physical location. A business can back up some or all server files, depending on its preference. Customers typically back up and restore their data and apps using a web browser or a service provider’s control panel.
Who owns the data in the cloud?
The short answer is that you own the data you create, but the cloud service provider has ultimate control over it. This is reflected in many providers’ terms of service which state that they can hold on to the data to comply with legal regulations.
