Cloud computing and cloud backup services are burgeoning all around the world. More and more enterprises are using these services to get their data backed up off-site and also set up disaster recovery protocols to guard against possible loss of business. However, can all these mushrooming data centers be easily administered? What kind of administrative control do you have over the data that you store online? Enterprises need to examine the administrative settings that are being implemented by the cloud backup service provider.
Cloud computing improves business services by using off-site computing sources to handle various applications. Cloud service providers have the capability to provide affordable and scalable solutions for small and medium sized companies and as well as for enterprises for a nominal monthly fee. What is more interesting is the amount of time it takes for a company to move to or make changes once in the cloud -- very minimal.
Cloud computing strongly affects IT infrastructure and offers more flexibility, agility and capability. Through cloud services, it is easy to scale up resources and lower down inefficiencies. In fact, the "pay-as-you-go" model is perfect for projects with short time durations. Cloud computing services also provide a number of important solutions, such legal compliance, accounting, and tax benefits.Read More

It is a terrible situation so, if you’ve not experienced this problem, you should be grateful because it could happen when you least expect it. To help protect yourself against the pain and agony of a lost or stolen laptop, the best solution is to backup your data and sensitive information to another device like a removable media disk drive, and/or securely stored the data somewhere else to an offsite location using cloud backup and recovery services over the Internet.Read More
