Does Cloud Online Backup Guarantee 100% Uptime?
The simple answer to this question is ‘no’. There is no backup solution in the world that can guarantee 100% uptime regardless of circumstances. However, when we dig a little deeper, there are actually two parts of the backup equation to consider.
First are the backup solutions a company uses to protect its own data. Cloud Online Backup from IT Wiser provides you with a secure and affordable way to back up your data and, if necessary, redeploying your entire cloud environment in just a few easy steps. Some clients combine it with traditional tape backup for maximum protection; the tape backup is quickly becoming an outdated technology.
The second part of the backup equation involves what web-hosting companies do for themselves and their clients. Most companies utilise multiple servers in various locations, all containing information pertaining to customer clouds. That way, the customer will not lose its system if one server goes down. The hosting company's software automatically reallocates resources to one of the other operational servers until the dysfunctional server can be repaired.
A combination of Cloud Online Backup and the backup solutions used by your web host should provide you near 100% uptime.
