However if you move to cloud the data will not be stored on local machine and is safe and secure on the cloud server. This is one of the biggest motivations to move over cloud.
- Turnaround time in case of Hardware failure: In case of hardware failure we can plug in new laptop or computer system and it will be up and running in 10 minutes, while in case of local system normally a full day is lost.
