Losing important data to a fire or some other disaster at your business premises can devastate your business. Data backup service providers have preached this message for a long time, but with the availability of cloud services, it is now much more convenient to heed the message.
Oracle is one of the leading providers of data services, and their focus on innovation and security means cloud storage is being made ever more disaster resistant. Mark Hurd recently spoke of the company’s shift towards storing data “on chips rather than disc drives,” which represent even more secure data back-up options.
Virtualization technologies enable the incorporation of cloud-based recovery models which keeps a cloned version of all your data readily available at data-centers should something go wrong.
