Understanding Online backup.

This week I thought I would take some time to create a short glossary of some of the words and phrases associated with the world of online backup. I hope this will help you to further understand this industry and maybe help you decide to make a smart choice and backup your data with MyPC Backup.
Online Access: enables the user to access the files they have backed up via any web browser, usually through a secure portal.
Bandwidth Usage: refers to how much bandwidth is used during a backup. Sometimes more bandwidth may be used during quieter times of the day and vice verse.
Transfer Encryption: data should be encrypted via SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to prevent it being intercepted whilst in transit between the original source and the storage server.
End to End Encryption: data should be encrypted before it leaves the source computer and stored in an encrypted form at its destination server.
Data compression: to minimize the amount of bandwidth used during a backup, the data is compressed into a looseness compression algorithm. Simply, data is packed into a smaller file size for a more efficient upload.
Latency: is the measurement of time taken for data to be encoded and transferred between computers/servers or communicating devices. Slow latency causes lag, and it is this that is normally responsible for transfer speeds that are slower than companies advertised bandwidth figures.
MyPCBackup uses a small desktop application to backup all of your computers to the cloud.
Your files are constantly backed up and you can access them at anytime from any device in the world.
And the best part about all this is you can get paid $50 over and over and over again. To find out how click hear.
