Managed storage products such as Absolute DATA by Absolute Communications offer a variety of features when it comes to managed data storage/cloud data storage. Some of the most important features include:
Automatic backups offer the convenience of configuring backup jobs to occur at set times alleviating the need for the user to have to remember to manually run the backup job. Once configured, a copy of your data will be stored on your account automatically.
This feature ensures only files which were modified, or newly created, since the last backup are saved to your cloud storage providing for efficient, quick, and space saving backups.
This feature prevents older files from being automatically deleted and replaced by their newer versions allowing the older versions to be accessed if needed.
Open File Backup
Unexpected events such as power outage or hard drive failure, to name just a few, can take place while you’re in the middle of working on a document. The open file backup feature ensures that even open documents are backed up.
A feature that allows you to access stored files from any computer whenever the need arises. This feature is handy for those who are frequently on the move and may need to access files while on a flight, in a meeting or simply out of the office.
Providers of secure online backups encrypt files during both transfer and storage; otherwise, your data is liable to be intercepted and read by malevolent parties.
The file sharing feature gives the ability for multiple users to access files, on your online account, from wherever they may be. The feature is especially useful for those who need friends, family or co-workers to be able to view some or all files stored on the account.
