Backup Solutions for SMBs: Tape vs. the Cloud
Tape backup has been the traditional method for routine backup and archival data storage. The decreasing price of hard disks however, has many businesses switching to disk backup or a combination of tape and disk. But local disk backups suffer from many of the same issues as tape. In addition to high hardware and administration costs, neither tape nor disk will provide disaster recovery unless they are stored off-site. Moving backups off-site increases risks in terms of security and compliance, creating complex issues regarding transportation to and from storage facilities and security of the facility itself.
The growth in cloud data centre providers offers small and medium businesses (SMBs) another choice. This paper examines the costs and benefits of traditional tape backup versus using a cloud backup provider.
