Cloud-Based IBM i Backup Services Can Be Crucial to Improving Your Company’s Business Continuity

Migrating IBM i backup data to cloud storage is an increasingly common practice among companies in every industry. Performing regular backups is important so that, in the event of any kind of data loss, it can be recovered from the backup copy. However, not everyone realizes that just backing your system up to another machine onsite isn’t always enough. In the event of a major disaster, such as a fire, tornado, or flood, a total loss of your datacenter’s main infrastructure and your backup storage will still mean that your important data is unrecoverable.

When you update your backup practices to include cloud-based storage, you can focus on restoring your company’s datacenter to proper working order with confidence knowing that your important data is still safe and secure in an offsite location. Then, it’s just a simple matter of restoring the data that was lost, and depending on the provider of your backup services, that process may take no more than a couple of days to get back to business as usual.
