Backup Up Cloud based Data
Posted on 2011-09-19
One of our main services is online backup.
We have some customers who are using “Google Apps” and other cloud based computing solutions.
I am concerned that this may make our online backup service redundant ( as the data will be backed up within Google.
) in the future ( or at lease eat into a huge chunk of our customer based in the coming year)
I am wondering will there be a need for customers who go 100% cloud based to either back down their data to a service like ourselves, or to back down their Google cloud based data back down to their own PC’s. I am not sure if this makes any sense, the only though I would have is that if Google were hacked, became unavailable due to Intenet issues, etc., then the customer would have a local copy of the data.
