Sneak peek of Grandfather-Father-Son backup in CloudBerry Backup

Designing a comprehensive backup strategy is a task of utmost importance for any organization. In considering various aspects of this strategy, perhaps the most important objective is to strike a balance between a sensible retention policy and manageable storage fees. Traditional retention policies that work off file versions can quickly become too costly for long-term storage. Thus, a more cost-effective retention design and solution is required.

Backup vs Archive

Backup and archive are terms that you might hear used interchangeably. In reality, however, they are not at all the same thing. There are important differences between data backups and data archives.

What Files to Backup?

Perhaps one of the most important things in dealing with data — for both organizations and individuals — is to design sensible backup strategies to ensure that all critical data is securely stored and accessible in the event of a disaster. On the one hand, certain corporate files are absolutely crucial for the continuation of business, but on the other hand backing up applications, movies, music, and certain system files is unnecessary, as that information is easily recoverable from official sources, not to mention the spiraling out of control cloud storage fees. In this article, we set out to clarify exactly what types of data should be subject to backup, and what files should either be omitted or delegated to the image-based backup. Continue reading

The True Cost of Cold Storage

IT organizations today need to be savvy when it comes to spending budget. The shift of moving from on-premises storage to cloud-based storage is just one example of how organizations have delivered the same level of service, but at a reduced cost. That’s just good money management – always trying to get more bang for your buck.

These offerings have appeared to meet the specific need for cloud-based storage, but at a cost that lines up with value perceived of the data being stored.

So, is cold storage just cheap storage?
