If you're in the market for an online backup service, there are many variables to consider, including storage size, pricing, advanced backup features, and ease of use. IDrive hits high marks across all these categories, and it offers a good price-to-storage ratio, too.
Online backup is an essential hedge against physical data disaster. Whether it's an act of theft or an act of God (earthquakes, floods, hard-drive devouring locusts), you never know what could hit your PC or phone, and when. This is especially important for mobile-centric users, who stand to lose a lot of digital stuff if their device disappears.
Businesses are drowning under the relentless onslaught of data. IDC predicts that digital data will grow at the incredible annual growth rate of 42 percent through 2020, while many analysts say that the data generated by Internet of Things (IoT) systems will come so fast and furious that most storage systems won't know what hit them.
One popular option to meet this demand is cloud storage, or internet-based backup and syncing for businesses.
With the internet of things, cloud storage has become more than just a way to conserve business resources by storing files and data online. It has become an essential business tool. It allows users to share and collaborate on projects from any location using a variety of devices. Cloud storage is also a vital component of any security system. Storing critical backups on the company server has inherent dangers, such as ransomware attacks or system failures. Keeping backups in the cloud is the best way to ensure a quick recovery.
