Before selecting a service from a cloud backup vendor, identify your organization’s specific needs, including which features are important for security and data management.
As data becomes more valuable to enterprises, backup and data protection become increasingly critical in delivering IT services to internal business customers. Over the last 15 years, IT has gradually adopted public cloud services and moved toward a hybrid IT model. In many cases, this is simply using public cloud tactically to deliver some IaaS or software-as-a-service offering. However, over time, we can expect the complexity and integration of services to become more dynamic, and as a result, we’ll see a complementary evolution in cloud backup services and data protection.
