In a recent Forbes video, Bluelock’s EVP of Product & Service Development, Jeff Ton, explained how the cloud represents the perfect platform for data protection: Since traditional backups require physical storage that might be time-consuming to retrieve during an event, companies need a faster solution for their most critical data. Similarly, having datacenters in geographically-diverse locations via an infrastructure-based setup may enable a faster recovery time during crisis, but may not be economical to upgrade when you need to match technology across all locations to ensure successful operation. Given that the cloud solves both of these pain points with accessible storage for an economical cost, it is the most logical solution for data retention in the modern age.
