BOSTON July 18, 2011 online backup
April 2011 December 2010
Although 31 percent of small business owners surveyed agree that backing up their company’s computers is a hassle that takes time away from running their business, the research indicated that physical devices were the most prominent backup methods used by small businesses. Specifically, external hard drives (41 percent), CDs/DVDs (36 percent) and USB/flash memory sticks (36 percent) were reported as the three most-popular ways SMBs back up data.
While many SMBs recognize that online backup solutions offer significant advantages over traditional physical-device backups – such as being automatic, continuous, offsite and requiring no extra equipment – the research indicates that those who do not backup to the cloud cited cost as the number one factor in their decision.
