What is cloud backup?

Cloud backup, also known as online backup, offsite data backup or remote backup, is a method of safeguarding your valuable business data from loss.All files, folders, emails, databases, virtual machines and the contents of an entire hard drive can be regularly and safely uploaded via an internet connection, to a remote and highly secure storage facility, also known as data centres.

Backing up and ensuring that data is not lost is the responsibility of all organisationsas is the restoration of data if needed.

Normally, on-site backups are scheduled to be carried out on a daily basis, in addition offsite backups are done to ensure that data is not lost due fire, theft or flood damage.  Whilst this is not mandatory it is highly advised.

In recent times with all the floods, many organisations are having off site backups to reduce the impact in the event of a catastrophe in line with their disaster recovery policy.  These businesses have realised that without their data even day to day tasks become very difficult or even impossible.

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is a topic that many find confusing. It isn’t, though, as confusing as it sounds. In fact, most of those who claim not to understand the subject are part of the majority that use it daily.

In basic terms, cloud computing is the phrase used to describe different scenarios in which computing resource is delivered as a service over a network connection (usually, this is the internet). Soft Sell offer a full range of services to utilise your applications easily and securely in the cloud.

Hosted Applications

As access to the internet becomes more widespread with faster, more reliable and ‘always on’ connections becoming the norm, the growth of applications using the hosted application model continues to expand.

A hosted application, also known as internet-based application, web-based application, online application and Application Service Providers (ASPs) are software applications where the software resides on servers that are accessed through the internet instead of the more traditional software that is installed on either a local server or on individual PCs.

Whether you are looking for hosted Microsoft applications such as Office 365, Visio, SharePoint, Sage Line 50 or bespoke applications, Soft Sell Group hosted services offer considerable benefits over the locally installed application.

Benefits include:

  • No vendor installation or upgrades required
  • Low start-up costs
  • Backups and viruses maintained by Soft Sell
  • Hardware and software server maintained by Soft Sell
  • Investment in local hardware & software reduced
  • No need to synchronise data with multiple devices
  • Access to data available globally through any internet connection
  • Reduced software licensing costs
