Barking up to physical media such as disks, USB drives or tape can be cumbersome, time consuming, error prone, and expensive. When you manage your own backups using physical media, you need to pay for equipment and licensing, and you also have to invest your own time into the daily backup routine.
This routine usually consists of changing backup tapes at the end of the day, and taking them to a secondary location. In order to maintain a proper backup process, you need to have at least 2 remote copies of your backups in addition to a local backup copy for faster local recoveries. All of this complexity can also cause problems, since all the manual handling can cause to human error to occur.
In fact, human error and physical media failure are the two current leading causes of back of failure. Cloud backups are far superior to manual data backups because all of the backup processes are completely automated. Instead of installing expensive hardware into your data center which is prone to breakage and requires maintenance, you can simply install a software application and have everything automatically be sent to the cloud for you without having to lift a finger.
Cloud backup also has other benefits, in the form of capabilities which would be difficult or impossible to implement using a manual backup process.
For example, cloud backups allow you to have continuous real-time backups of your data so that files are always up to date within a few seconds. Cloud backups can easily be changed to adapt to changes in your IT infrastructure architecture. Cloud backups also simplify advanced recovery capabilities such as fail-over for warm site replication, or other business continuity.
