Lately, the cloud has emerged as a popular solution for data backup for small to medium sized businesses.  Data backup has always been a popular subject for the SMB market and with the recent trend in data growth, cloud-based backup solutions, like cloud server hosting, are here to stay.  Backing up your data to the cloud does however create a few challenges that need to be considered.
