Before we examine why everyone should have cloud backup, let me explain what cloud backup actually is. Most of us have heard of the term and some of us haven’t a clue. Simply put, cloud backup is a backup service that stores your important data on a security-enhanced server somewhere in the interwebs. Most cloud backup service providers are pretty easy and straight forward with setup and billing. Others, make it complicated and a huge headache to deal with. With that said, if you’re interested in a quick and easy cloud backup solution then Carbonite cloud backup is what you need. Carbonite is my absolute favorite and straight forward cloud backup solution. It works well for individuals or in a business environment. This is why we recommend Carbonite backup for everyone:

Why Should Everyone Have Cloud Backup?
If you’re storing important data on your computer, any form of backup is a must. Now, storing data locally on a flash drive or hard drive isn’t the best option. Why? Because those storage devices can and will fail and you could easily lose your data. The better option is to have both. Setup local backup and also have a cloud backup solution for disaster recovery. In the event you lose your local backup and or your computer, you can easily recover your data from Carbonite. Simply install the program on any computer and re-download the files you need. I personally know of individuals and small businesses Carbonite has rescued by simply backing up their data including their Outlook mail. If you’re unfamiliar with how much data recovery costs please call around. Ask any local data recovery shop or hard drive manufacturer. Data recovery is easily in $1000+ range depending on the amount of data needed and damage to the drive. For a single user, Carbonite can cost as low as $7 a month and for a business, $230 a year!
