    Is Google Drive Alternate to Backup?

    In this contemporary world cloud storage has become an integral part of our personal lives and the way we conduct business. Cloud storage providers like Google often give multiple Gb of cloud storage space for free that can be used to save a copy of your data. Cloud storage services have done a great job, they have created a platform where most of internet users are flocking to them but million dollar question is Google drive or any other online storage is alternate to backup service? Answer is big NO. All major cloud storage space provider sync files across multiple computer, storage device or mobile device. They make files available wherever we are, whenever we need them, on whatever devices we’re using. It requires zero effort to share those files with any other users. Files are stored in the cloud and can be accessed directly through the Google site but this sync service doesn’t help them to establish themselves as a full-fledged backup solutions.

    Main difference between a backup solution provider and cloud storage service provider are as follows:

    1.      Cloud storage, also known as file sharing, simply entails storing modest amounts of data online but backup service provider ensures data redundancies so multiple copies of each file exist at all times and maintain version histories.  It ensures durability so that no matter what files are deleted or corrupted, at least some version of the file can be recovered

    2.      Cloud storage space has limitation of the free data storage that can be stored on cloud means only limited & selected file can be stored on Google drive but back up services providers like Docusaver are scalable that can be increased as per requirement and they are built to design big data files.

    3.      As data is synced with cloud storage so if data file is deleted or got corrupted from the computer then it will be automatically deleted from Google drive as well on the other hand cloud backup service like Docusaver provide complete protection against data loss. Even if your computer is stolen, destroyed or compromised, end user will be able to retrieve all file from their cloud sever anywhere and anytime. A backup solution archives your data and keeps it safe in the event the unthinkable occurs—fire, wear & tear of hardware, theft, flood, malware or someone doing something really dumb.

    4.      Cloud storage doesn’t offer the schedule backup but cloud backup ensures that data is backed up at regular and schedule time and  files can be restored to a specific point of time.  It ensures durability so that no matter what files are deleted or corrupted, at least some version of the file can be recovered.
