Cloud computing was once a phenomenon; a new wave of technology that took the world of technology and business by storm. Good thing about such sustainable phenomena is that new vendors pour into the area to compete. The more vendors innovate and compete, the better it gets for customers.
In the cloud storage and backup industry, we already saw great cloud storage and data backup solutions such as Drop Box, etc. We also saw Google stepping in with Google Drive. What most of us forget is that many more solutions are introduced everyday. Here are some new cloud backup solutions that you might not know about:
Sometimes, some of the best vendors go unnoticed in the face of hot startups like DropBox, SugarSync, etc. Asigra has been in the business of cloud backup, recovery and restore business for more than 26 years. They manage about 550,000 sites worldwide – now that’s an impressive statistic. I am assuming that the number includes their total client list. On another note, their technology seems superlative and state-of-the-art. They have also plenty of products for various types of customers while I am not sure if it makes sense for personal use as it seems to be apt for businesses. Impressively, they also provided tiered enviroments, private clouds, and virtual environments.
While it’s not strikingly different from many other cloud backup and storage services we review here, it’s new. It comes with all the standard features you’ll come to expect from a cloud storage and/or backup service such as mobile access, multiple device syncing, file sharing, and data protection. Of course, you’d want to give credit to the fact that they have a long feature list [http://www.justcloud.com/why-us]: affordable plans, file restore feature, no file restrictions, unlimited storage, a 24 x 7 customer support, data encryption, and 100 % automated service.
It’s been in the news for a while and I picked up the lead from a stream of Tweets on Cloud Backup. At first look, Cloud Elephant has at least 4 different backup plans, which are seemingly great products, and the prices look competitive. The company claims comfort and flexibility – which includes multiple files sharing across any number of devices, a great option called as “SyncDrive” (reminds me of Windows’ SkyDrive), and the usual expected candidates such as collaboration, support, and encryption. Cloudelephant.com also gives you the option of backup for your NAS storage device.
Have you come across any new cloud storage and data backup solutions that you might want to give us a heads up about? We’d love to hear from you.
