Data is the heart of any organization and backing it up is an essential part of any business strategy.
Still, it is estimated that one third of computers do not back up, according to Backblaze research by Harris Interactive. The study found that only 7% of users use safe practices on their computers, archiving data daily elsewhere.
Instead of using the traditional technique of backing up to an external hard drive, an increasingly popular alternative is to use an online backup service that stores data on servers in the cloud. No additional hardware is required.
