To save up the files and programs on a company’s servers, they can use a service called “cloud backup,” which backs up their information to a remote server. Businesses often choose to back up to the cloud so that they can still get to important files and data in case of a system failure, outage, or natural disaster. The business cloud backs up your server by making an exact copy of it and storing it on another server in a different place. Based on preference, a company can back up only selected server files or all files.
Because so much of a business’s data and apps are stored in the cloud, many companies now back up their cloud servers regularly. The second most common application of cloud computing in large and medium-sized businesses is data backup and disaster recovery.
