Backups and security for cloud applications
June 10, 2010 | Leave a Comment
Backups, the thing we all love to hate, and hate to love. Recreating data is rarely cheap, especially if it involves detailed analysis and combination. So we back it up.
Take for example this blog, it’s based on WordPress; which is about as standard and supported as you can get for a blog. Backing up the entire blog isn’t that bad, just grab a copy of the database and you are mostly good to go, except for the minor things like custom web pages and CSS files. So what is one to do? Well the obvious thought is to outsource your cloud service backups to a cloud service backup service.
Update: Trend Micro appears to be getting in on the secure online backup thing.
