Afraid Of Losing Your Files? 2 Options You Have To Keep Everything Backed Up

Jacqueline Reed

It is important to keep all of your files backed up in case of you have problems, such as your hard drive failing. Fortunately, you have many choices to keep everything backed up. Below is some information about two of these choices so you can determine what is right for you.

Cloud Computing

If you are tired of doing backups every night, you can save a lot of time by using cloud services. This will also ensure that your files are always safe.

Before you sign up with a cloud service, you need to understand what cloud computing is. In short, it is placing all of your files on a remote server that is hosted on the Internet instead of a physical drive.

You can have access to all of your applications, services and data 24/7, and you will not have to worry about losing anything. This saves you money as you will not have to purchase costly hardware like servers, and will save on electricity because you will not be using any physical equipment. You can also work from anywhere as long as there is an Internet connection.

There are three different types of services: SaaS, PaaS and IaaS that you can choose from.

The cloud computing service that you sign up with can give you much more information.

NAS Device

An NAS (network attached server) device is a dedicated server used for backing up data. There are wired and wireless devices available. What you choose will depend on the type of computer you have. For example, your computer must have a network interface card in order to make a wireless connection.

If your computer does not have a network interface card, you can use a USB Wi-Fi adapter to allow your computer to be wireless. These adapters simply connect to a USB port on your computer and automatically installs the drivers needed.

The NAS device is connected to the Ethernet port on your network or Wi-Fi router. Besides having the ability to backup all computers and any mobile device on your network, an NAS device can wirelessly access and share files and stream audio and video.

There are many different sizes of NAS systems available so you can back up a small family network to a large data center. In most cases, you will have the ability to insert one or more hard drives to provide you with more storage capacity.

Either of these options will work well for you so you can have peace of mind knowing your files are backed up.
