Use a secure offsite online data backup service
to protect your most essential files
copyright 2006 by Tracy Marks
WHAT IS ONLINE DATA BACKUP?
An online data backup service is a web-based backup for automatically compressing, encrypting and backing up your most essential files on an immediate or daily basis.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ONLINE BACKUP?
With an online offsite backup service, you have your files stored in a different location, and easily accessible - a lifesaver if not only your computer but also your home or business archieved files are destroyed due to an unexpected catastrophe.
The online backup solution offered by most offsite backup servies provides much more security than most home and business computers. A primary advantage is that you can schedule your backup to occur automatically rather than feel burdened by its continual reappearance as a frequently neglected item on your to-do list.
The remote backup software provided is usually easy to use and allows for fast data recovery.
WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF ONLINE BACKUP?
Data backup can be slow, especially if you have dialup connection. Even with broadband, some online backup companies use so much bandwidth that you may not be able to surf the Web while backing up.
Online backups are not viable for backing up programs, and are too slow for frequent backups of your entire hard drive.
