The cloud is a real lifesaver and
timesaver when it comes to backup. While most consumers and home
users will find a single cloud backup to be enough, businesses need
to take a different approach. Having a single tier backup in the
cloud is not enough.
There is a relatively new architecture known as
hybrid backup or disk-to-disk-to-cloud
(D2D2C) that is far superior. With this approach to
backup, your first tier is to an on-premise disk/s. There are many
advantages. First, this disk is probably already in place, or
should at least be. And being local, your restores should be fast,
especially if you only need to restore small amounts of data.
The next step is to team the local disk with your cloud backup
and this is the beauty of hybrid backup. If the local disk is
somehow compromised you can always restore from the cloud, and this
is particularly handy for disaster recovery. In some cases,
restores make more sense from the cloud, such as when the device
that needs the restore is remotely located and the cloud offers an
easier and faster approach. Best of all, there is no need for
The cloud isn't just good for backup. It is now a
superior solution. You no longer have to worry about the
infrastructure. Backups are automated. The data is encrypted.
Availability is higher than you could achieve on your own.
You maximize your time, and minimize your costs.
None of those scenarios is possible with tape backup. If you're
not making the transition to cloud backup, you're doing your
business a disservice - and making your life far more
