Why do We Need Cloud to Cloud Backup?
Cloud-to-cloud backup as backing up Google Photos to Google Drive is a good idea and is worth doing, and this section will give you 3 reasons why it is necessary in the perspectives of data security, cloud storage, and as an alternative.
- Data security: This is an information explosion era, and you may produce quantities of data. If your data lose, it may cause huge loss. Therefore, keeping data on only one cloud seems not safe enough, and backing up plays an essential role in ensuring the data security. If one of your cloud drives is unfortunately attacked, you can use the data on another cloud drives because you backed up before.
- Cloud Storage: As your data becomes bigger, you may find that the free storage of one cloud drive is not adequate, so you have to pay for more storage. If you don’t want to pay for more storage, you can back up some data to another cloud. With this method, you save the money and save the storage of cloud that you frequently use.
- As an Alternative: Many people like to backup data on an external hard drive, but backing up data on cloud is better than backing up on the hard drive. Since you have to bring the hard drive if you want to use the data on it, and if the hard device loses, the data will disappear together with it. But the data storing on the cloud isn’t so dependent on a particular device, you can access it on any devices.
Due to the 3 reasons, you may understand why we need to backup cloud to cloud. To backup between clouds is not a difficult thing, and next part will introduce a best helper to you.
