Disasters happen. Take, for example, the case of a law firm in South Carolina. When hurricane Irene took the Eastern seaboard by storm, some regions were without power for 2 weeks. Had the firm utilized an online backup service, they could have visited an alternate location to power up laptops and pull down recent copies of active cases to continue their work. Instead, 2 weeks passed with no productivity.
Cloud backup, also known as online backup, covers you in 3 ways. First, site disasters and even power failures are easily managed by making valuable files accessible from any location. With your data files stored in an offsite location many miles away, you can be assured that your data is protected from a natural disaster.
Second, with proper security in place, backing up your data files to an online backup service is safe and as convenient as entering a password. By making use of a highly reliable data center (Rebit Pro uses Amazon S3) your data will be available when needed. Wireless backup and remote backup are also safe when secure encryption methods are in use, as is the case with Rebit Pro.
Finally, automatic backup ensures your important files are backed up without thinking about them. A good backup system remembers to back up your data even when you don’t. While some services offer sophisticated features for sharing and synchronizing files, others, including Rebit Pro, make online backup a breeze.
