Using CloudArray for Offsite Backup to Cloud Storage
Traditional Offsite Backup and Tape Backup Challenges
The traditional approach to offsite data protection is tape backup, but tape backup procedures are complex, costly and error-prone. Tape backups leave you exposed to data loss and it can take days or even weeks to restore data from tapes stored offsite. To make matters worse, tape backup operations are challenging to scale as the number of IT systems and the amount of data grows.
