Remote Data Backup (ROBOs)

Definition - What does Remote Data Backup (ROBOs) mean?

Remote data backup is the practice of securing or duplicating data in a remote location or from a remote location in order to provide better data security. Companies with multiple physical locations often consider remote data backup strategies in order to protect data assets from all sorts of emergencies or attacks.

Techopedia explains Remote Data Backup (ROBOs)

Many of the companies that use a remote data backup strategy have a large number of remote offices or branch offices (ROBOs). Companies with this kind of setup can choose from many different options in order to practice better data security. Companies can use specific systems that employ backup media, such as remote hard drives or physical media like tape, which can be transported from one location to the other. Companies can also change the structure of data management within a business in response to changing security needs, such as by aggregating all of the important data in a central data warehouse to eliminate the need for some kinds of data security at the ROBOs themselves.

Enterprises can more closely consider their own security needs by looking at how many physical sites the business maintains, and what kinds of software processes go on at each location. Businesses should also look at the amount of continual data flow, in gigabytes or terabytes, between various business locations, as well as the budget available for data protection and data storage.
