Survey says SMBs prefer both online and Onsite backup for data protection

Data intensive enterprises very well know how precious their data is to them and so nearly half of small and medium scale businesses in US say that they are using both on-site and online solutions. This was revealed in a new survey conducted by Clutch, a leading B2B research firm.

The survey also revealed that many SMBs steadfastly hold to on-site backup, with 42% of those surveyed reporting that its more important than online backup. The study discovered that in past two years alone, 63% of SMBs have adopted cloud based backup solutions. Despite this surge, nearly 90% of SMBs continue to backup their data both online and on-site. The trend is to be expected, say cloud backup and disaster recovery industry analysts.

One of the reasons why SMBs are feeling reluctant to abandon on-site backup and adopt cloud based backup exclusively is due to security and loss of control over important data.

Things have improved in recent times for cloud based backup and recovery market to a large extent, says Clutch survey.
