While all VPS computing solutions provide a variety of options and features, not all VPS solutions are created equal. One of the key features of VPS computing that you should consider adding to your current plan is data backup. In today’s blog, we’ll discuss four reasons why cloud backups are key to the success of your VPS data plan and the safety of your company data.

VPS Data Is Always Available

When your company moves to a VPS computing solution, you enjoy the flexibility of being able to access your data and your applications from any computer. This is a key selling point for a lot of businesses because flexible data options allow wider collaboration. Without the limits of having to work in one location, your employees can always access a current version of documents that have been automatically backed up on the cloud.

VPS Data Can Be Scalable

VPS data companies provide their clients the ability to scale their data–to go up if you need more data or to go down if you aren’t using enough. This is a key cost-saving concept to consider. While your data company will provide you with unlimited space that comes with a cost, the savings will still be very visible. No more flash drives, no more external hard drives, no more worrying about physical storage that can be left at the office or lost. Cloud backups to the rescue!

VPS Data Is Completely Safe from Loss

A VPS provider will keep your data safe and secure where no one can access it without the proper credentials. As we’ve already discussed, having data kept on the cloud prevents the loss of physical peripherals and unintentional access.

VPS Data Is Secured by Your VPS Provider

For the reasons we’ve discussed and more, trusting your VPS data to a VPS provider is the smartest decision you can make. While shifting to a cloud based computing solution may be challenging at the beginning, your peace of mind is worth the growing pains. By trusting your data to a trusted partner like Solar VPS, you can know that your data will be protected behind firewalls and other password-protected access points.

Local Backups vs. Cloud Backups

Cloud Backup Solutions

With the Cloud becoming more and more popular for the public, a debate has popped up between Cloud providers and Cloud users. That debate centers around the use of Local Data Backups vs. Cloud Data Backups. For the vast majority of companies and personal tech consumers, the idea of storing your critically needed data locally makes sense. Use an external hard drive. Set a reoccurring backup time on a daily basis. Forget about ever backing up your data ever again. However, with the Cloud becoming more accessible to private consumers and companies of all sizes, local data backups are giving way to Cloud backups. Here’s why.

The Problem with Local Backups

  1. Local Backups Require Personal Data Encryption – Here is the thing about using your own locally stored hard drive to backup all your critical business data – it’s unsafe. Unless you are an IT expert who knows how to properly secure your local hard drive with secureExternal Hard Drive - Local Backups encryption methods and security codes to make sure hackers can’t get in, your critical data is open to the world. For the personal user who only stores music files on their local external hard drive, a hacker doesn’t mean much. But for a company storing sensitive financial data or classified documents, security is a very real threat.

  2. Local Backups are Limited – A local external hard drive is a physical piece of equipment which takes up place on your desk and is limited to a storage capacity limit. Unable to grow from its stagnate state, a local external hard drive will not grow and scale with your company as you need more storage space for sensitive data. A local hard drive is 80gb, or 120gb, or 500gb. Once you reach that maximum potential, it’s time to purchase another hard drive. This might not seem like that big of a deal but for a company of any size, who shuffles through a ton of data on a daily basis, your local limit is going to be met and exceeded quickly. This will cause headaches and cost a lot of money.
