Companies who still rely on traditional back up methods will soon find themselves at a disadvantage; more and more, cloud storage is becoming more popular than tape backup because of its low cost, its ability to backup more data, and its ease of recovering data.
Cloud storage also lets users access their data and information from any device with Internet capabilities, making collaboration easier for companies when several employees are working on the same project and need access to the same files. Cloud storage will continue to grow until traditional backup methods are thought of the same way people now think of old Polaroid cameras, only not as nostalgic.
A recent Cloud Tweaks article explains that traditional methods of data backup are becoming more irrelevant because of the many features of cloud storage. The article notes that cloud storage services are incredibly easy to use, and companies will save time by not having to deal with IT experts all the time:
“And the best thing is companies now don’t have to worry about developing an in-house IT structure. No worry about buying servers and storage and deploying them making sure that it can cater the business needs nor have to pay for specialized IT experts who look after your network. They can launch their cloud from anywhere within minutes and transfer all their data there while its security is taken care by the vendor.”
Companies that still use traditional backup methods will soon switch to cloud storage because of its reliability, size, and low cost. The initial switch to cloud storage will be therapeutic for some companies, as it will improve their day-to-day business operations and will make disaster recovery exceedingly easy with minimal downtime.
