SearchDataBackup.com recently posted an article by W. Curtis Preston on “Cloud backup best practices: A tutorial on evaluating cloud data backup services”. In his article he first discusses what organizations should look for when selecting a cloud data backup service, such as Asigra’s Cloud Backup. Below is a quick summary of the factors you should consider:
- What platforms does the cloud backup services company support?
- How long has the service provider supported your specific platform(s)?
- Is the company financially viable to be around to support your platform down the road?
Preston also recommends making sure you thoroughly understand the service provider’s service-level agreement.
Stay tuned for more best practices in coming posts.
