Keep identical copies of your data

No one expects data corruption or loss, but it is far less expensive to maintain a backup than to have to re-create it from scratch. IBM Cloud™ provides turnkey EVault and R1Soft automatic backup solutions, as well as the ability to create your own using an IBM Cloud virtual or bare metal server running your own backup application.
