One of the universally acknowledged benefits of cloud storage is the flexibility it offers businesses of all sizes. Keeping your servers off-site and your data online are quite simply exceptional ways of saving money, time and effort, giving companies more freedom when it comes to budget and resource allocation. There is also the security that the cloud provides around data backup, eliminating the issues connected with disaster recovery, whether it’s a power surge, a fire, theft or a crash.
Of course, there are still times when cloud based disaster recovery and restoration becomes necessary. As cloud storage becomes more and more ubiquitous, it’s easy to become reliant on the convenience it provides without thinking about the precautions it requires. Like many digital leaps forward, when real world labour and physical infrastructure becomes part of an online routine, there is a problem with an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ attitude developing in users.
