Recent research has shockingly revealed how poor and old-fashioned methods of data backup can lose companies billions. This is another reason why directors are flocking towards online storage.
The results of the research showed that:
- There was a loss of $7.6 billion in American business as a result of viruses during 1999’s first 6 months
- 30% of all businesses which suffer a major fire will go out of business within 1 year, and that a whopping 70% will fail within 5 years
- and that 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the occurrence
The figures and grim realities shown through these statistics are hard to stomach for any sector in the world of business. But thankfully for any companies which have been mercifully (so far…) spared from the data loss lottery, there is an answer to solving potential future problems: Online storage.
Online storage vendors can save everyday businesses—from small, all the way up to corporate—time (due to automated scheduled backups), peace of mind, and most importantly, the knowledge that valuable data will never be lost. Hopefully, in the not too distant future, the entire world can benefit from efficient and secure methods such as this.
