With the cost of IaaS dropping, cloud backup is fast becoming the backup solution of choice - with the elimination of complexity for monitoring tape rotation and an overall reduced cost by switching from initial CapEx to on-going OpEx.
Instead of performing backup within a centralised, on-premise IT department, Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) connects systems to a private, public or hybrid cloud managed by an outside provider. Managed backup is a simple, lower cost, Opex service.
A backup appliance comprises a backup application preloaded onto a hardware device with built-in storage media. Traditionally, IT organisations have put together their own backup solutions using a backup application, server and target media. A backup appliance provides the backup app, processing power and disk as a pre-packaged backup solution in one easy-to-manage box.
