This is a common challenge for most businesses. We’ve all heard what benefits the cloud brings, but most business owners aren’t certain what public, private, or hybrid cloud actually means. Essentially, a public cloud hosts storage for various companies at the same time, on the same server while a private cloud hosts storage for one company on a dedicated server; and a hybrid cloud employs aspects of both public and private clouds according to the company’s unique needs.
You’ve probably heard a thousand times: no business is immune to disaster, however, a good cloud provider will have your data stored in a secure, redundant data center wherein there are redundant components, such as servers, hard disk drives, operation systems, and more, installed to backup resources in the event of failure – therefore allowing you to continue accessing your files and applications without delay.
If you’re storing confidential data in the cloud, you’re probably concerned about the security and privacy of that data. A good cloud provider will make sure your data is protected with access controls, storage encryption, transmission encryption, firewalls, physical security measures, and various other safeguards in place, in order to minimize the risk of hackers, cybercriminals, or unauthorized individuals accessing your files.
