Cloud Online Backup: Where Are My Files Stored?
If you are used to storing files on a disk or external hard-drive, the concept of saving these to a non-hardware source can seem strange. Because of this, you may be hesitant to embrace new ‘cloud’ solutions that are increasingly becoming the norm.
With Cloud Online Backup, your files are stored in global datacentres in locations across the world. These datacentres house the infrastructure that processes and stores data safely and efficiently for you to access at any time. While these datacentres could be thousands of miles from your location, your files are accessible online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from any computer, anywhere in the world.
Uploaded files are secured with military-grade 256-bit encryption and storage capacity is unlimited – eliminating the need for additional purchase of hardware. When stored in the cloud, your files are secure and free from risks faced by hardware (i.e. fire, flooding, and malfunction).
