Why is there a need for Online Backup of computer data

Invariably everyone uses a computer or some form of computer technology. Computers have become an integral part of everyone’s life. Starting from a school child to a successful business magnate, computers are used extensively for recreation, business, shopping, working, for just being in touch and more importantly of all, running the whole system of transport, administration, communication, etc.

Trans-national companies and government authorities worldwide rely on data stored in a central place. Without proper data backup, there will be chaos in case of a disaster. It can happen anywhere and anytime. No surprise, data backup or data recovery takes centre stage.

After all even computers are not foolproof and are prone to failure. Anything can go wrong with them; the files can get corrupted; the motherboard can crash, and the CPU can break down at the wrong time. When this happens, what goes off along with the hardware is the precious data. So the importance of data backup cannot be understated. It is surprising that despite the grave eventualities seen in data loss, not all businesses have still realised the importance of backup of computer data.

Defining logistics of Online Backup of Computer Data

Online backup of data is an offsite data storage in which folders, files or all the contents in the hard drive are stored in a remote server with network connectivity. During disaster recovery this offsite backup becomes very crucial for any business to spring back to life.

This system of online storage or backup of data almost practically removes the risk of data loss in case of disaster due to fire, theft or man made or natural disasters. However, continuous or periodic backup is necessary.

Thanks to online backup, data in the original computer can be easily accessed anywhere by using a PC with high-speed internet connection and a web browser interface. To ensure privacy and security, one must resort to encryption and password protection.

The easy and economical choice of many individuals and even firms is seeking back up of data with CD or DVD. Some also use tape, flash drives or the external hard drives. Many, however, do not realise that unless the stored data is kept safe offsite, the chances of losing it are very high. Remember, it is better to be safe than sorry!
