IBM i users should consider cloud storage as an alternative to local storage for backup data. Why? Backup data is one of the most important assets in any company. Most would not be able to operate without it, or at the very least would lose a considerable amount of time and money recovering if it were lost. Backup solutions that are failsafe give businesses peace of mind that their data is always accessible.
As vital as reliable backup solutions are, they are daunting to implement. Can your backup infrastructure scale as your data collection grows? Are your backup processes efficient enough that they don’t cause workflow interruptions? Do your employees know enough about hardware and infrastructure to build a reliable backup system? Rather than grappling with these questions internally – and instead of paying developers to come up with the answers – many businesses choose to partner with cloud providers that specialize in backup solutions. For businesses running IBM i, that company is Abacus Solutions.
