Handy backup features, like simultaneous access to backup data for multiple users, make network storage a popular data backup option for business. Consequently, today’s market offers a wealthy variety of network storage devices and different solutions designed to supply networked computers with data storage services. Networked storages can serve for different purposes, such as protecting data from loss (backup), providing fast access to information for multiple users, and other.
There are different types of network storage for backup data: backing up to FTP servers, copying to NAS, Online Backup storage, and others.
Basically, there are two options for backing up to a network storage: on-site and off-site backup strategies.
The on-site strategy supposes backing up to your local network storage like an internal FTP server or NAS.
On-site backup advantages
On-site backup disadvantages
Among disadvantages there are costs on purchasing, keeping, and repairing the equipment (storage, server cupboards, etc.) and risks of local damage (natural disasters, vandalism, storage failures, and others).
The off-site strategy supposes backing up to remote network storage like remote FTP or cloud-based servers.
Off-site backup advantages
Off-site backup advantages are delivered by the fact that your data is stored remotely. So, if any storage misfortune happens locally (data theft, fire, etc.), the data is secure. Also, there is a chance to use the network storage service provided by professionally operated data centers.
Off-site backup disadvantages
Among disadvantages there are the issue of backup speed which depends of the bandwidth of your network connection. Also, with an off-site backup strategy you rent a network storage: you keep on paying the rent and some data centers might be not 100% downtime-proof.
One of the most popular off-site backup options recently is the cloud backup technology which helps you store data to multiple virtual servers rather than on a dedicated server. This is a rather low-cost option for off-site server backup which considerably reduces risks of data loss from natural disasters and other human- and media-error incidents.
Handy Backup has a number of options that can make your backups exclusively effective.
