– Full cloud management required. You need to be able to manage, control, and process everything right from the cloud.
– Speed is one of the most important things to look for in a backup cloud solution. Many products have multiple functions but are very slow. Read comparisons and benchmarks to make sure you feature-rich but a quick fix. It's usually useful to look for different execution modes that can speed up the cloud-based services to IT resellers and restore processes.
– Software should run silently in the background, without manual settings, and without affecting performance.
– Provision and installation should be done from the cloud in as few steps as possible. Never consider solutions that require you to manually install and assign tasks on individual computers.

– One of the advantages of the cloud is mobility. The solution you choose should integrate with all major mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.).
– Restoring is just as important in making a backup decision as to the backup itself. Ensure that there are plenty of recovery options that involve more than just dragging and dropping files from the cloud onto your computer. It should be simple, fast, and easy.
– Mandatory block-level technology for archiving. You don't want a solution that doesn't support this. The block-level means that large files are divided into "blocks" and only modified portions are archived. It saves a lot of time and space.
