According to Greg Schulz, author of the book "Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Network," data backup is far from a dead technology. Instead, he writes on Sys-Con.com, the technology is evolving to protect data instead of just back it up.
After losing 1,500 hours of videos of famous comics honing their acts on stage, Jamie Masada, owner of comedy club The Laugh Factory, learned to pay more for data backup, according to the New York Times.
According to CodeFutures CEO Cory Isaacson, using cloud backup for disaster recovery is a smart way to do business for any enterprise. He called it a "good early move" in making a move over to the cloud.
