A survey, conducted by the research company tech validate, also revealed that 62 percent of firms want to present a new approach for their backup and disaster recovery over the next 12-18 months. Many respondents 59 percent claimed there was a need to modernise backup facilities because of growing data volumes, with 54% saying that they also had to accelerate recovery times in case of a disaster.
A quarter of the respondents did, however, claim that they were still concerned with safety in the cloud. Neil MacDonald, vice president in Gartner Research, recently maintained the analyst company also found that safety in the cloud was a key concern when companies were considered cloud adoption.
Nevertheless, in a blog on the business site he defended security from the cloud, saying: In several Gartner surveys, safety is cited as the number one inhibitor to the adoption of cloud-based computing. Many IT professionals have a preconceived notion that cloud computing will be less secure than what they are able to deliver themselves on assumptions. This is a mistake. A complete statement that cloud computing would not be as protected is as wrong as a complete statement that cloud computing will be more protected. Both can and will be true.
Cloud backup is quickly becoming a very attractive data protection option for many IT organisations. As data growth continues unabated and businesses will need to safeguard data in remote office, notebook and virtualised environments, traditional backup and restore is usually incapable of finishing backup tasks within the scheduled time. Recoveries on the other hand are normally a multi-layered exercise in frustration.
Amiga’s cloud Backup solution is an end-to-end solution that is purpose built to leverage virtualised environments, has built-in mobility support with scale, meets safety standards and contrasts the value of information together with the costs of protecting it. Amiga started developing cloud backup technology in 1986 by creating a Platform that could deliver backup and recovery services within the telephone lines. Today over many years later, with phone lines being replaced by the net it remains the most effective and secure cloud backup solution of its type.
Over 550,000 websites are now protected using cloud backup solutions in both public and private cloud environments. You do not have to choose whether to completely manage the corporate Backups by keeping your own infrastructure or fully outsource them by leveraging seas.
Additionally, it is easy to migrate your backup data from the internal data centre to an MSP’s centre or vice-versa using the Amiga migration application. As your backup strategy evolves, if you decide to keep the custody of your information or outsource custody into a trusted MSP, Amiga ensures that you maintain control over your backup data – such as cash in the bank.
