If you're not backing up your server in the cloud, you might as well be setting yourself up for disaster. There has never been a better time to think about data security, when virtually everyone is moving over to the cloud. It won't be long before all our personal and business information is stored in the cloud – but before we get there, you might be asking yourself where to begin. The best and easiest point of entry into the cloud is simply backing up your server. The cloud can be the primary or secondary backup target for your on-premise server, and is sometimes even integrated with your current on-premise backup software or hardware solution. To better understand your exact backup needs, ask yourself these questions: ? First – what kind of backup do I need? Off-site storage alone, or fully managed solution on both ends? ? Next, look over your operating systems and key applications, and how many virtualization servers you have – maybe you have physical servers with no virtualization. ? Also, decide whether you want a solution that integrates with your current software. With Peak, you can pick and choose the cloud combination solution that works for you. We dedicate resources for each and every customer – which means you'll never compete for resources. And if you're a control freak, you can thank us later for the deep access to infrastructure we provide – that allows you to have the highest level of control available in the cloud market. So when you think about it, you can either store your data on the cloud, or you can store your data on the cloud…because whether you like it or not, cloud storage will soon be not only your best option, but the only option.
