Cloud Data Backup is also known as online backup. It refers to storing a secured copy of all your data online on a virtual cloud, enabling the user to secure the data from being lost due to machine failure or theft. It allows the user to upload his data online directly on Google Drive and One Drive. The user can also access the uploaded, secured data from anywhere and restore the backup as per the requirement.

Practicing the technique to back up the data on the cloud can help bolster an organization’s strategy to protect its crucial data and to avoid the excessive cost of data transfer.
