This is possible because of growing WEB applications and WEB development.Now a days netizan's are focusing on their privacy and data security in entire cloud. So the secure data backup terms came into existence , if we are working with any important data on our pc/laptop and want to backup it, then most probably what we do? we simply attach the respective files or folders to our corresponding Email or send it to FTP ,right ? or probably take a backup on another HDD,which also misleading because we can't predict when your HDD will get crash 😛 , So the term "Cloud Backup" is very much important for most internet users to grab all their data together i.e Data Centralization.
