Executive Summary

The amount of digital data is growing quickly across all industry sectors and companies of all sizes. For IT solution providers, you are faced with both managing all this data and protecting it with backup and restore capabilities. Faced with these challenges, an increasing number of small and midsize businesses (SMBs) and solution providers are migrating to cloud storage and backup. In fact, Cisco's SMB research shows more than 40% of SMBs are using cloud for at least one storage need.

Cloud-based data backup provides SMBs with faster responses to storage needs, improved management for compliance and audit goals, and more effective backup to a remote site, which helps provide access to information during a natural disaster or on-site data loss. In addition, a good cloud provider should provide attractive pricing, high levels of security, and very high reliability.

In this vendor neutral paper written by industry expert Aaron Goldberg, we will define cloud computing and discuss why businesses of all sizes should look to the cloud for data storage and backup.
