Yes, we know that hurricane season is months away. Unfortunately, most businesses forget about how critical their backup solution is until the next named storm is barreling down on the coast. The time is now to review your current backup procedures, determine whether the proper solutions are in place, and to make sure part of that solution is an online backup.
Why should I backup?
Let us state the obvious: all of your data is important – whether it’s contact information, business documents, financial contracts, customer databases, or archival photographs and videos. You need to demand quality assurance that you have a disaster recovery plan in place in case of negative externalities, litigations, accidents, and other such unfortunate events.
Why use online backup?
Online backup offers an alternative to hard drive or tape backup solutions. Online backups are fully automated requiring minimal to zero user intervention. The most important advantage inherent in an online backup solution is that you will always have an off-site copy of your data.

Should an Online Solution replace my current backup?
In a corporate environment, we normally recommend that an online solution supplement your existing local backup. Although an online solution has numerous benefits, in the event of disaster a local solution may offer a quicker resolution if the quantity of data that needs to be recovered is great.
