Next Six Secrets Most Backup Vendors Don’t Want You to Know-5 Next

While online or cloud-based backup is touted as the “next big thing” in data protection, there’s one big flaw that everyone is missing: It’s an extremely slow medium to recover data. If a disaster strikes and you need to recover your data, it can often take online backup vendors a month or more to ship your first terabyte up through the Internet and finally on to you. And most companies don’t have a month to wait to get their business back up and running. It’s like putting your money in the bank and then not being able to take it out when you need it.

Bottom line: If you are going to use online backup, pair it with an on-premise backup appliance to expedite data recovery.

Have you ever had the feeling that you were left in the dark on something while everyone around you was in the know? Every industry has its secrets, and the backup and recovery space is no different. And while many backup providers do a great job of keeping these secrets, well, secret, Unitrends believes companies should be well informed on the industry’s intricacies so they can make the best purchasing decisions possible. As such, the company is blowing the door wide open on six longtime industry secrets. Take a look.
