Online backup, also known as remote backup or data backup, is a modern method for a business to obtain offsite data storage in which files, folders, or the entire contents of a hard drive are regularly backed up to a secure data centre.

The purpose of online backup is simple. Backing up data to a datacentre protects the business from the risk of total data loss as a result of fire, theft, file and hard drive corruption, or other disaster, where data held onsite would be lost. With today’s greatly improved internet speeds Online backup is becoming the most common way for businesses to protect their critical data.
Online Backup is a unique online service that allows you to back up and instantly restore all data and files held on your system. With Online Backup, you can:

  • Securely encrypt and back up ALL your files, emails and databases to our secure off-site servers.
  • Automatically back up your data over the internet throughout the day and night.
  • Restore all your data saved in the past – from a few hours before to a version you kept last year.
  • Simple subscription based service with a 30 day Free Trial and you only pay for what you use.
For a normal system on a typical broadband line — and assuming you continue working on the computer during the backup process — Cloud4 Backup backs up data at about 2-4 GB per day. If left undisturbed on a fast connection, however, you can back up around 9-10 GB in a day. Speeds depend on your broadband connection.

After your initial backup, subsequent backups are relatively quick. Chances are that you won't even notice them. This is possible because Cloud4 Backup performs incremental backups, which means that it only backs up the portions of your files that have changed since the last time they were backed up. This saves lots of time, bandwidth and storage space.
All backup files are compressed and encrypted before uploading to the Backup Server, the average compression ratio for text-based file is around 4:1. However, no further compression can be made on files that are already in compressed format (e.g. JPG, ZIP). In general, you can assume a 2:1 compression ratio when you are backing up a file set with variety types.
In an incremental backup, only modified files will be uploaded to the Backup Server

On the other hand, In-File Delta is applicable to the physical files to be uploaded to the Backup Server, does not matter whether it is a MS SQL database file, MS Exchange transaction log file or any normal file in a FileBackupSet. Specifically, only the changed blocks in comparison to the original file on the Backup Server (delta file) will be uploaded.

For each modified file, OBM would determine whether the entire file or only delta file should be uploaded. If the entire file is to be uploaded, the old version of the file will be moved to the Retention area. Else if only the delta file is to be uploaded, the previous delta files will be moved to the Retention area and the Data area should contain the original full backup file, checksum file and the latest delta file of this file.
