A Cloud Backup service leverages hosted computing resources to create backup sets or recovery points for virtually all types of data, services, and applications. Unlike traditional backup techniques, cloud backups automatically replicate an image of your system on a scheduled basis and are  highly flexible, scaling to fit any size business. Some solutions, like Arcserve UDP Cloud Direct, offer hosted disaster recovery servers, built from images of your production servers, that may be accessed in an emergency.  


Cloud Backup vs. Cloud Syncing

Let’s clarify the difference between a cloud backup service and a data sync service like Dropbox or Google Drive. If you only need a few select files to always be in sync among multiple computers or mobile devices, Cloud Syncing may be the solution.

If your goal is recovery in the event of the loss of information, hard drive, computer or physical site, then Cloud Backup is the better choice. Arcserve UDP Cloud Direct is a new offering with benefits of enterprise-level data protection in an easy-to-use and accessible solution. Their expanded feature suite  provides comprehensive data protection for your cloud, virtual, and physical environments.
