Using the Internet to Save Your Data

May 27, 2008
For many years, people have been storing their computer data locally in order to make sure that it is safe. The Internet, however, is changing a lot of different things. One change that seems to be happening is that many individuals are switching over to a remote data storage backup. There are many different reasons why they may do this but ultimately, it comes down to just a few, convenience, price and options. Let's take a look at each of these three and see why backing your data on the Internet really does beat backing it up locally.

Convenience - Many people would argue that backing up your data locally is very convenient. When you really think about it, however, how convenient is it? If you're going to back your data properly, you need to make sure that you run the backup every night. This typically means that you must be there while the backup is running. While the data is being accessed, your computer typically slows down as a result of the additional activity. It almost becomes a drudgery, backing up your data in order to make sure that it is safe. After that, you need to take the data to a secure location that is away from the computer should a tragedy strike. By backing your data on a remote server, over the Internet, you can schedule it to happen after you have already left for the night. The data is safely Off-site and all of your days work as well as the rest of your data is secure at another location.

Price - Depending on your backup needs, you might spend hundreds of dollars on a backup system, multiple tapes or backup media and a technician to make sure that it is all installed properly. If something should go wrong with the system, you can plan on spending it all again, not to mention upgrades that need to take place periodically. On a remote backup system, the only thing that you have is a small monthly fee which is flexible, depending on the amount of server space that you actually need. Any upgrades that need to take place will not affect your price at all.

Options - You do have several different options when it comes to a backup drive. These options, however, typically come in the form of the type of media that you plan on using. A local backup drive cannot really stack up to the options that are offered via remote backup service. Things such as automatic backups, redundant storage sites and multiple servers are just some of the features which you might find beneficial.

The Internet certainly is changing things. Fortunately, it is also changing the way that we store our backup files for the better. Take advantage of the new technology and keep your data safe in a remote location. Not only is it convenient, it is the better choice.
