About remote & managed data backup services
How much is your company spending each month to internally maintain and manage data backups? A lot? You should know that there's a more cost-effective solution. Typically offered through the cloud, remote data backup services through a managed service provider effectively protect data from disaster events and provide a more flexible option for data recovery and backup.
What is remote data backup?
Traditional data backup was typically handled on-premises by physically storing data copies on tape or disk drives. However, cloud-based solutions offer another way to store your enterprise data and information. Online data backup can automate the process of saving data copies more quickly and on a larger scale.
With remote data backup, your records are transferred over the internet either to a cloud-based solution or to a managed partner's data servers. The process typically occurs during periods of low network usage, such as overnight or on weekends. An automated, routine backup schedule ensures that there's a consistent approach to managing enterprise-wide information.
What is managed data backup?
In managed data backup, external providers handle and manage data backup services rather than the company handling its own data on-premises. A managed data backup provider will permanently archive and retain data copies, and assist with restoring older data backups in the event of disaster recovery.
For this type of service, you would typically pay a monthly service fee based on the average backup size or total network bandwidth. Since you can choose a plan that meets your current needs with the ability to upgrade in the future, a managed provider offers high levels of scalability.
