The Most Common Cloud Computing Fears, and How to Fix Them

When we hear that our customers have concerns about the cloud, our ears immediately perk up. Because hurdles you face on cloud-based apps are opportunities for us to help you overcome. And while we can’t address all of your challenges, we are proud to say that we can help with some of the most important ones.

Here are some concerns we’ve recently heard about, and ways we can help out.

1) “I can’t restore docs & folders when users permanently deletes them”

BetterCloud surveyed 18,361 Google Apps administrators and found that between 30 percent and over 50 percent of organizations were concerned about restoring Google Apps documents that users deleted.

2) Data Integrity – Ensuring Data Remains Available & True

The CTTA State of the Cloud Channel 2013 study, a joint project of The 2112 Group and Channel Partners magazine, ranked the top 10 concerns that solution providers encounter in cloud sales, and #4 was Data Integrity. Organizations are concerned about data becoming corrupted in the cloud and they worry about the inability for cloud providers to effectively recover their data.

3) Security – Ensuring Information is Safe

This same list ranks Security as the #1 Concern of organizations. The fear of susceptibility to malware, hackers, and cyber-espionage is the #1 reason why companies are objecting to moving to the cloud in the first place.

How Backupify Relieves These Concerns

These three scenarios represent completely valid fears. Losing data is certainly scary, and hackers do exist. Whether it is your users’ fault or an external party’s fault, cloud data can be corrupted or deleted, which is the last thing you want to happen. Fortunately, in each of these three cases, we can help.

Backupify’s core use case is recovering lost data on Google Apps, Salesforce, and other cloud-based apps. Our cloud-to-cloud backup service automatically creates a second copy of all your cloud data every day and allows you to restore any or all of either to your hard drive or directly back to your cloud-based app. So whether your users, the cloud provider itself, or a hacker corrupted or deleted something permanently from your account, you will have what you want when you need it.
