Backup to the Cloud

Definition - What does Backup to the Cloud mean?

Backup to the cloud refers to the use of cloud computing technologies for backup purposes.

It could refer to any process, framework or objective that makes use of cloud resources to create, manage and maintain backup data, processes and services.

Techopedia explains Backup to the Cloud

Backup to the cloud uses cloud computing technologies for backing up important data and files. Although the meaning of the term is the same for businesses and non-enterprise users, the usage is different. For example, for a cloud backup provider, backup to the cloud means a cloud backup product or service. Backup to the cloud also means the use of online storage instead of standard or local storage technologies. It could also mean an organization’s shift toward the use of cloud-based storage and backup services.
