The three types of Cloud Backup
May 15, 2023,
Data backup is a crucial aspect of any organisation’s data management approach. After deciding what data to back up and where to store it, you should next decide ‘which type of backup should I use’. Why is this important?
There are three types of backup, Full, Incremental, and Differential. Each uses different amounts of storage, has separate backup and restore times, and varies in cost.
Most files you own and create will require a backup plan should your data be lost due to hardware failure, data corruption, ransomware or malicious intent. It’s not a case of if but when.
Cloud Backup is a method of making encrypted copies of your crucial data and storing them in a different location from where your live data is stored.
Any disaster affecting your live data won’t destroy the backup.
An online data backup to an approved offsite cloud-based storage platform is preferable because your data will be stored on three nodes. The provider’s infrastructure handles the backup process, which covers scheduling, data compression, encryption, and storage. Cloud backup offers advantages like offsite storage, scalability, accessibility, and cost-effectiveness.
