Cloud Online Backup: The Safety Deposit Box for the Virtual Age
Back in the mid-twentieth century, before computers dominated our lives, keeping valuables safe would generally involve storing them in a safety deposit box at the bank. There were a couple of reasons why people would do this; firstly, the bank was generally seen as the safest building in the area – it had to be given the amount of money that was stored within its four walls. Secondly, by keeping valuable items in a remote location, people knew that should anything ever happen to their home or business, for example a fire or burglary, their treasured items would be unaffected – stored nicely away within the confines of a bank vault.
Today our needs are mostly virtual, with items of great importance stored on computers – this is especially true in the case of business. Living in the age that we do, so much faith and reliance is placed upon computers; documents and files including bank statements, contracts, invoices, and inventory control are all saved on computer hard drives, as well as personal items of sentimental value, such as holiday photos and music collections. Because much of what we now deem to be valuable exists in the virtual world, the need for the old safety deposit box at the bank seems to have diminished. However, the premise of keeping items safe in a remote location should still be a top priority for every computer owner – if not physically then digitally. And this is where Cloud Online Backup comes in, as the safety deposit box for our times.
