A few years ago, cloud storage and backup were two of the most unusual and uncharted domains on the Internet. Prior to the advent of major cloud providers, enterprises and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) had to integrate their own on-premises backup services, purchase traditional backups from commercial vendors, and basically do whatever they could to keep data from being wiped from their most important servers.

What is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is defined as the shift towards centralized computing power and storage. The increased efficiency and productivity that cloud computing offers has led to a dramatic uptake in adoption across the enterprise.
Businesses are now relying on cloud-based technologies for a variety of purposes, such as running operations, storing data, and even distributing resources across multiple teams and locations.
The global cloud computing market is expected to grow from US$46.7 billion in 2016 to a market worth over US$215.2 billion by 2021, according to Market Research Future. By 2023, the market is expected to reach US$618.6 billion.

Many of the big commercial providers started to offer more simplified alternatives for businesses. The problem with most of these simplified services was that their data was no longer protected by additional security features found in their premium offerings.
For example, most hosted backup services provide a solution for managing business networks, but this also involves managing the full stack from server-side VPNs to the application layer.
