Long before the cloud came around, individuals and companies alike were turning to Web based storage and data recovery. With a mix of software and Web based management controls, off-site data backup and recovery was finicky, non-mobile and not too much more cost effective than the on-site tradition.
Now that the cloud is above, the nomenclature of the past no longer applies – cloud storage and cloud data recovery solutions are growing in maturity, offering capabilities in integration, management and control that the old Web based data storage providers just couldn’t offer.
Regardless of the sky-high appeal of cloud storage benefits, it is not wise to turn to cloud driven business continuity haphazardly. While the perceived ease and cost performance of cloud storage and recovery is tempting, cloud storage and backup present considerable challenges.
