Are Cloud Databases the Right Fit?
Like any technology, cloud-based databases pose potential problems. Privacy and security are always possible issues. Likewise, a company might lose some of its data or its ability to access it in the event of a disaster if the service provider has not recently backed it up or doesn’t back it up to multiple, geographically dispersed locations.
Rackspace regularly backups all cloud databases and uses redundant storage to ensure your business data is protected and, in the case of a major disaster, quickly replicable.
