With the advancement in technology, completing your work in time has become very easy. In the past, all business data or personal data was written or stored in registers and books. With the help of computer technology, you can store the data in a hard disk. The storage capacity of disk drives is rapidly increasing day by day. If by any chance, there is a hard disk failure, a fire in company premises, or a virus on the computer, then in such a situation you are prone to losing your data.
There is a good chance you will lose your data forever. At times like these disaster recovery is highly recommended. Disaster recovery means that in case of such a situation, you can have your entire data recovered easily. There are many companies that offer online data backup facilities. Online data backup can be used for personal use as well as for business use. Recovering the complete data in case of system crash takes several hours but using online data backup your data can be restored in a matter of few minutes.

No one else would be able to access to steal your data. Data that leaves your computer is stored on the server in an encrypted format making it more secure.
