Rescue Approach

In cloud computing practice, backups are important in several ways: Customers want to secure their data, and vendors want to secure the essential details of their platforms. Rescue yourself, if you can.

Sky Blue

Microsoft offers the Windows Azure Backup service, which lets you back up data from servers in the cloud. This removes the need for your own infrastructure, and the service alleviates privacy concerns by using continuous encryption.
