Remote Backup

In storage terminology, a remote backup refers to an online managed backup service for backing up data to a remote, cloud-based server (“cloud backup“).

To update or restore a cloud backup, customers need to use the service provider’s specific client application or Web browser interface. Files and data can be automatically saved to the cloud backup service on a regular, scheduled basis, or the information can be automatically backed up anytime changes are made.
