Techopedia Explains Offsite Backup Software

Offsite backup software typically works similarly to standard backup software, but has the ability to connect to a remote backup storage infrastructure. The offsite backup provides connectivity between the local IT environment and the offsite location. The offsite location can be a data center, cloud storage/backup provider or an organization-owned offsite infrastructure. As per configured schedule, the offsite backup software creates and sends backup data to the offsite location.
