What Is Cloud Backup and How Does It Work?

What Is Cloud Backup and How Does It Work?

Nothing is scarier than a catastrophic loss of your data on a big project. Nobody wants to get deep into a job, the computer crashes, and all of the data and hard work is gone. Losing your project means losing time and money, which could be disastrous to your company. In the early days, before software like Dropbox, OneDrive, and other cloud backup UK solutions, a crash without autosave or manual backups was destructive.

Thankfully, cloud backup software has become omnipresent in the modern world with services like cloud backup for Google, Sharepoint, Box, Microsoft 365, Salesforce, Office 365, Teams, and many other solutions, preventing this problem from occurring and giving businesses peace of mind. This software has emerged as the key safety net for the modern business world, but what exactly is it?

Cloud Backup

Cloud backup is one of the simplest but most effective tools in the modern day. With software such as cloud backup for Google workspace, a file is sent from one location to another to preserve it safely. In these centres, the files are transferred to a secondary storage system for protection. While this is often virtual, the physical transport of files is often used for extra security. Cloud backup is usually instant, with results simple to view.

Businesses most commonly use the software with monthly or annual subscriptions. There are two types of cloud services:

  • Public- accessible to a large number of users
  • Private- only available to a highly limited number of users

Consumers initially used cloud backup for Google workspace, particularly for services such as Dropbox and OneDrive. Still, in an inversion of the standard model, businesses became later adopters of software like Salesforce and Box.

The Methods of Cloud Backup

Several methods of cloud backup are used when using software such as Box or Salesforces, which vary depending upon the program. These methods are highly effective ways to ensure your data is safe and secure.

  • Backing up directly to the public cloud is a process of backing files up to a shared server using software on the user’s end to create the backups rather than on the cloud end, with the server simply hosting the copy.
  • Backing up to a service provider involves writing data to a managed data centre with software either provided or the user using commercially available software.
  • Cloud-to-cloud software involves software in one cloud backed up directly to another cloud with the software provided through the service.

These common methods enable your business’s data to stay safe and secure in case of a catastrophic failure. With a quality cloud backup, such as Box or Salesforces, you can count on the software.

Cloud Seeding

A new form of cloud backup has become common outside the standard methodology. Cloud seeding involves the vendor sending a client a backup storage device, such as a hard drive to back their data up. Following this initial backup, the device is returned to the cloud client, and from then on, the only data backed up to the service is new.
