Cloud storage is getting cheaper and cheaper while Internet broadband connections are getting faster and faster – actuallly not everywhere and not at the same pace.
So cloud storage is becoming more interesting not only for consumers (that already uses it to share files and store photos), but also for companies.
You should consider to adopt cloud storage for your backups at least for 4 reasons:
- Infrastructure management: cloud storage is managed by the cloud provider, you don’t need to take care of hardware, software and data redundancy
- Variable costs vs fixed costs: you only pay for what you use
- Scalability: disk occupation peaks aren’t a problem anymore
- Location: a far more easier way to have backups located out of your headquarters
