IBM Backs Cloud Backup

IBM this month will try to convince you to trust its new cloud backup and recovery service. More and more of these services are coming out all the time. The backup part is easy. Recovery... not so much. Just like on-premise recovery, which doesn't always work, cloud backup can take days to execute.

I guess it is all because the cloud system that stores the data doesn't always match the system needing the restore.
