What is backup on the Internet?
Internet backup is an online data backup that provides data management and protection for individual users as well as for large and small businesses.
This term is also referred to as online backup, web backup, web-based backup, network-based off-site backup, and other similar phrases.
Web backup can be critical when computing devices are destroyed by fire, flood, explosion, vandalism, earthquake, storm, or other unforeseen event. The loss of data can mean the loss of documents, pictures, research, compositions, graphics and a wide variety of other digital data. For organizations, however, this can mean the loss of years of wage data, sales data, inventory data, legal documents, strategic planning documents, schemes, charts and many others. This could negatively affect hundreds, thousands, or even millions of customers. Hence, backup on the web is invaluable for local disaster recovery.
The frequency of the backup is also critical. PCs with 2 to 4 processors can easily back up data on the web while using one or more applications at the same time, and the user may never notice a decrease in computer performance. However, users with a single processor experience regular, if not more, performance degradation.
