A Sys-Con Media release claims that small and medium enterprises now feel that cloud backup and storage does make sense for many enterprises and individuals today. According to a release on eWeek , it’s now proven that more and more businesses – small, big or medium – find it more necessary than ever to take to cloud data backup and storage solutions:
Big Data is coming, where are you?
An unprecedented level of data is being created and consumed every single day. “ The amount of data that was created from the very beginning of mankind to 2003, is now being replicated every 48 hours. That’s the kind of data we are looking at”, I overheard Gary Vaynerchuck – a wine connoisseur and an entrepreneur – say in a speech once. Kevin Studley, CEO of The Network Pro, mentioned numerous examples of how data is exploding today. He also points to a Gartner research that the total volume of data grows at an unbelievable rate of 59% each year. I strongly recommend you read that post.
Cloud Backup is Preventive, so why not?
Risks are aplenty today. Floods, thefts, and hurricanes – you name it. Individuals and businesses have loads of data stored on their hard drive and it’s only imperative and this data finds multiple homes for safe keep. Not only are businesses and individuals looking to find other homes for their data, but they also want this data to be as far as possible from their home base to increase the safety factor. Cloud backup allows that to happen. It’s all instant, plug-and-play, and highly scalable.
Cloud Back up is cheap, almost free (if you want it that way)
Earlier, I wrote a post on how you can manage to never buy a single subscription for any of the paid Cloud Back up services and still be able to store pretty much all of your data. Alternatively, you might even choose to subscribe and enjoy cavernous space for your data, enhanced security and protection. You might get plenty of other features too, apart from the ubiquitous multi-device sharing options.
The best part is that whether you are a business or an Individual, the cloud data backup solutions and cloud storage services are highly affordable today. You never had something like this before.
How cool is that?
