Online Backup

September 15, 2008

I documented a few caveats that I thought were important.

David Strom at Baseline Magazine adds a few extras to consider when moving your backups into the cloud.

….be sure to ask these key data storage questions: How much data will be stored? How fast do you need the data up and running? What makes up the data repositories? What kinds of data compression techniques will be used?
