Cloud platforms such as Amazon and Windows Azure give administrators options that allow duplicate copies of your data to be stored multiple datacenters all across the world. While this has become a standard feature for most cloud offerings, these providers do not provide functionality that allows users files to be restored if they are accidentally deleted or corrupted. The newest release of CloudBerry empowers administrators by allowing them to do Cloud-to-Cloud backups or Cloud-to-Site backups. If a file suddenly goes missing or becomes corrupted, an admin can query a previous version of the backed up file from the cloud.
CloudBerry takes the Cloud-to-Cloud approach a step further by allowing data to be backed up across different cloud platforms. Let’s say you wanted to back up your Azure data into a Google cloud, CloudBerry would give you the functionality to facilitate that backup with just a few simple configurations. Given the fact that Google has just slashed cloud storage prices, this data could be stored quite cheaply on Google versus the other competitors.
Giving your data another layer of protection could be an integral part of your disaster recovery planning. Many organizations require that data be backed up in three different formats. For example, you could use CloudBerry to facilitate a Cloud-to-Cloud backup, a Cloud-to-Site backup and you could also continue your physical backup process using methods such as tape or magnetic media.
Why should you use Cloud-to-Cloud backups?
Your data exists in the cloud for a reason. Backing up your data onto an alternate cloud service only offloads the space you would need to provide in order to backup the files yourself. CloudBerry makes this process simple and easy. While it is possible to perform these backups manually, CloudBerry takes all of the guesswork out of the process by automating the backups on a schedule that fits your organizations guidelines.
