Backup refers to the process of copying data to a specific location, from which the data can be retrieved in the event of an unexpected infrastructure or service problem.
Data loss and the disasters that precede them can be both costly and distressing. Even small data losses affecting 100 or fewer files will cost you downtime and lost revenue.
Disaster recovery is the complete process required to safeguard data and services against problems and restore them in the event of a failure. It is more complex than the process of backing up your data. Backup is a part of disaster recovery, but it is only one component.
Microsoft, along with the rest of the technology sector over the last couple of decades has been moving core services into the cloud. Now you can access those same suite of services – such as Word, PowerPoint and Excel – through Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), a cloud platform for business.
Microsoft Azure is another enterprise cloud platform, with a much wider range of capabilities. Unlike Office 365, which is a software as a service (SaaS) product, Azure has IaaS and PaaS components.
The term Tech Stack describes a group of apps, digital tools and platforms, vendors, data sources or programming languages that are combined to deliver a strategic business function – like revenue generation, product development, or customer experience.
