cloud backup

(online backup)

Cloud backup, also known as online backup, is a strategy for backing up data that involves sending a copy of the data over a proprietary or public network to an off-site server.
The server is usually hosted by a third-party service provider, who charges the backup customer a fee based on capacity, bandwidth or number of users.
In the enterprise, the off-site server might be owned by the company, but the chargeback method would be similar.
Implementing cloud data backup can help bolster an organization's data protection strategy without increasing the workload on information technology staff.
How data is restored.
Online backup systems are typically built around a client software application that runs on a schedule determined by the purchased level of service. If the customer has contracted for daily backups, for instance, the application collects, compresses, encrypts and transfers data to the service provider's servers every 24 hours.
To reduce the amount of bandwidth consumed and the time it takes to transfer files, the service provider might only provide incremental backups after the initial full backup. .

Cloud backups often include the software and hardware necessary to protect an organization's data, including applications for Exchange and SQL Server.
Most subscriptions run on a monthly or yearly basis.
While initially used mainly by consumers and home offices, online backup is now used by small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and larger enterprises to back up some forms of data.
For larger companies, cloud data backup may serve as a supplementary form of backup.
