Organizations are widely beginning to shift away from on-premises boxes for data backups and turning their attention instead to emerging cloud options. There are numerous reasons for this, but security concerns are key among them. Backup-as-a-Service is on the rise in response to this shift, with new providers emerging to specialize in convenient cloud backup services.
A Case of Security and Convenience
Every organization has their own unique situation, but there are some common threads evident in the growing shift away from on-prem backups. Many organizations start off with on-prem boxes for their backups because they are easier at first and may seem like the simplest solution. Data can be stored offline, but close enough at hand to facilitate data recovery if needed without too much hassle.
