Local Storage Flexibility

April 17th, 2013 by admin

We are working closely with Datto Backup to provide you with and introduction to Datto’s Hybrid Cloud Backup. These Datto Solutions are the most reliable and efficient way for end-users to back up their data securely and ensure that it is recoverable regardless of any disaster scenario.

Local Storage Flexibility

A benefit of hybrid cloud solutions is that the entire backup is not solely housed on-site. By leveraging the "infinite" storage space of the cloud, a business can decide how long they want their local retention to be, and scale it according to their needs. Files can be restored with ease whether they are on-site or off-site, so businesses do not need to worry about losing on-demand access to their data.

This offers a great benefit to smaller businesses, because it provides some flexibility if the local backup device has limited storage. In the event that a business starts to run out of space on their device, they can either consolidate incremental backups and/or prune off local copies of older backups that have already been replicated and secured off-site. This reduces the necessity to purchase more local storage as a result of data growth. This is a huge pain-point for users, as many businesses do not have the resources to purchase, house, and maintain a backup infrastructure that is scalable to their data growth requirements.
