    We have mentioned some products before in a previous article “Backups, Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery and Other Small Animals” in which we alluded to the value and utility of cloud services in backing up your data. With data playing a greater part in business than ever before and with cyber-crime threats growing in variety and severity it’s time for everyone to start thinking of backing up their data.
