What is Remote Backup?
Remote backup, also known as online or cloud backup, involves securely storing data on an offsite server or cloud platform using the internet. It eliminates the need for local storage, providing benefits such as offsite data protection, automated backups, encryption for security, and accessibility from anywhere. Cloud-based solutions offer scalability, automated and scheduled backups, and features like versioning for point-in-time recovery.
