Cloud backup solutions now offer a very affordable alternative to local tape/disk backup options. Data warehousing providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft offer low cost, high availability data stores. This means an end to swapping and storing tapes.
The latest cloud backup software allows features such as backup to Virtual Machine, block level backups of large files, data compression to minimise storage and encryption to protect your data.
You can restore individual files from any prior backup (within the data retention period) or perform full bare metal restores using a USB recovery stick. The backups can be restored directly to a VM server or even to a cloud VM service such as Amazon EC2
There are various cloud backup services available from fully managed services to local software using your own data account. Please contact Modus for more information and to find out which service is best for your company.
