What is Backup as a Service?
Backup as a service is a data backup technique where a customer purchases backup and recovery facilities from a remote vendor, often an IT services provider.
These cloud service providers provide businesses with the ability to affordably and securely store backup data without maintaining internal IT services, architecture and computing power.
In lieu of managing physical technology on site, the customer connects their IT systems to a managed cloud service – which can be private, public or hybrid – where maintenance and service continuity is taken over by specialist administrators.
This offloads the complexity of backup procedures at the cost of a nominal monthly fee, circumventing the need to incur upgrade expenses when a business exceeds legacy storage backup.
Vitally, this ensures business data remains accessible and retrievable in case of hardware failure, theft, server outages or temporary downtime.
