The concept of online storage and backup
Since the last few years, cloud storage has emerged as the best IT solution for storing and backup of data. A number of renowned organizations have introduced this to their infrastructure and are enjoying the benefits of it. There are three basic criteria of cloud or online storage and backup.
- It has to be within a network (connected to Internet)
- The place for storage should be scalable sans downtime
- The storage pool should be easy to manage at the time of scaling
This is basically a SaaS (Software as a Service) extension which has received much popularity of late.
If you aren’t careful, be ready to face the music:
While the concept of online backup and cloud storage has become popular, there are still some companies which aren’t adapting to it. According to a recent survey, one thirds of PCs of the world don’t have a backup. Thus, not all follow the rules of safe computing. Some of them have data protecting software or services, though these are effective to some extent. Thus they are constantly under the threat of data loss. And once they have lost it, it is lost forever. The brighter side of this is, some of them have started to realize the importance of cloud storage.

Some of the tools that provide online backup have an interface with the key up the front. It tells about the previous backup and if any files still need to be sent. There are buttons for backup as well along with changing settings and restoring data.
