Why You Can (and Shouldn’t) Use Cloud Backup

A cloud backup, also known as online backup or remote backup, is a systematic technique for sending a copy of a physical or virtual file or database to a secondary, off-site location for storage in the event of an unexpected incident such as equipment failure or disaster. Secondary server and data storage facilities that are hosted by a third-party service provider charge a fee depending on the amount of storage space or capacity used, the bandwidth of data transmission, the number of users and servers, or the data accessed.
