What is offsite data backup solution? The most popular offsite backup challenges and features.
Every modern company understands that there is a possibility of malfunction in storing important information, so businesses try to protect their data by backing it up.

There are two ways to backup corporate data and each of them have both advantages and disadvantages: these are onsite and offsite backup.
Offsite backup is the replication of the data to a server which is separated geographically from a production systems site.
