  3. 3. Overview of Online Backup<br />Backing up data the most important and complex part of taking care of your data.<br />As such number of backup options exist, but research states more than 80% of backups fail, when data has to be restored. We will take about Online Backup which is the fastest growing backup option for small and medium sized businesses, who get a enterprise class backup without investing heavily in those kind of servers or resources.<br />Online backup is a method of offsite data storage whereby documents, files, folders, or the even the entire contents of a hard drive are regularly backed up on a remote server or computer with a network connection. Online backup service providers offer this offsite backup, which is absolutely necessary for disaster recovery in case files become lost or damaged.<br />
  4. 4. How it Works<br />The online backup provider supplies a software agent to be installed on the computer to be backed up. This busy piece of software allows the user to select the files to be backed up, manages the internet connection, encrypts and compresses the data before transferring it across the internet to a secure, remote location, and allows the user to view and restore the backed up documents.<br />
  5. 5. How Secured is my Data ?<br />How Secure is my data, the biggest question or concern?<br />Though some may have understandable concerns about a third party holding their most valuable data, in reality online backups are very secure. Before being transferred, the backup data is encrypted to 128-bit level - military grade - making it effectively impossible for any one to intercept or decrypt the data. The user is the only person who can read it.<br />Another common concern is about the security of the data storage center itself. These are invariably class-A facilities equipped with all security facilities to ensure stored data is always available to clients.

  17. 17. Benefits of Online Backup<br />6 Good Reasons for Online Backup Services<br />Automatic. Once one establishes their schedule, it is fully automated. There are no tapes to <br />manage, staff to schedule, or vendors to coordinate for pickup and delivery of tapes. Therefore, <br />you save time, money and virtually eliminate errors. <br />Secure.

Typically, a small software agent is loaded on the systems you wish to backup to a data vault and then the scheduling/backup process can begin the same day.<br />Free up IT Time.
