Hopefully you’ve read my article about backing up your workstation to the cloud and using a secondary backup to something like a USB drive, but what about backing up the cloud? One of the benefits of using cloud computing is that you don’t have to backup, nor do you need purchase and maintain the software, and other components needed to backup. If you are a little bit scared of say, having a client or co-worker nuke a document in Google Docs, Spanning Backup may be your solution. It’s a cloud backup service (think of it as insurance) that backs up your cloud documents. Crazy, I know, but if it’s something you worry about, there’s a cloud solution.
