Cloud backup gives you the added security of your data being stored in an isolated environment so that it cannot be accessed by malicious third parties.
In the event of a disaster that compromises your on premise backup, cloud backups provide the perfect disaster recovery solution and we suggest that this forms part of your disaster recovery, or DR, plan.
Having backup data in the cloud, away from your live environment, also makes it available for data interrogation and testing purposes.
We would always recommend a local backup to run alongside your cloud backup. This is called a hybrid backup solution
. Your Veeam cloud licensing covers both cloud and local backups so to achieve a hybrid backup solution please talk to us about local storage options
