Today, traditional backup and recovery plans used by small businesses deploy physical backup solutions that include physical tapes needing to be moved off-premises by messenger. This approach is rife with challenges such as being time-consuming, and inconvenient (to say the least). Worse yet, there is the risk that the company’s critical data will not be able to be restored when necessary (rather defeating the whole point of the exercise).
Fortunately, there is a new alternative. Companies like HybridgeIT, which provides virtual IT services for small businesses, are deploying Zmanda Cloud Backup to revolutionize disaster recovery plans. In turn, Zmanda is leveraging Amazon S3 storage cloud to store backup archives of its customers.
What this all means for small businesses is that they can now backup, archive, access, and restore years of their company’s critical data - on demand - via the cloud.
