Having your data in the cloud is a great business move. Making that call limits your hardware footprint. This frees your IT team to focus on beneficial projects unconcerned about routine maintenance. Furthermore, projects they’re routinely concerned with, scaling to meet business needs, becomes far easier to manage. Business units can leverage the power of cloud to scale up, or down, as the market reacts to their latest initiative. What the cloud doesn’t do is offer a 100%, fool proof way to protect your data. Uptimes aren’t even 100%. Nor do today’s cloud providers offer recovery of your cloud implementation.

Recover from the worst “permanent” deletions in a few clicks, even child and grandchildren, if you want the descendants at all!
