Cloud Backup Case Study


The Challenge of Data Backup

A client of ours recently identified a need for a cloud-to-cloud backup solution for their Egnyte storage system. The goal was to create an up-to-date and accessible backup on Box Enterprise. Given the amount (over 10TB) and dynamic nature of their data, which undergoes constant changes and updates, traditional backup methods were not feasible.

Selecting the Right Cloud Backup Software

After thorough research, we landed on cloudHQ for its compatibility with both Egnyte and Box Enterprise. The software’s reputation for secure, efficient, and real-time data synchronization played a crucial role in this decision.

Benefits of Using Cloud Backup Software

  1. Real-Time Data Synchronization: One of the standout features was cloudHQ’s ability to sync changes in real-time. Any modification made in Egnyte was automatically updated in the Box Enterprise backup, ensuring that the backup was always current.
  2. Enhanced Data Security: cloudHQ provided robust AES-256bit encryption during the transfer. This added layer of security was crucial in protecting sensitive data.
  3. Efficiency and Time-Saving: Manually backing up large amounts of data would have been a tedious and time-consuming task. cloudHQ automated this process, allowing the company to focus on core business activities.

How the Software Maintained Backup Integrity Over Time

cloudHQ’s capability to continuously sync data was essential in maintaining an up-to-date backup. It monitored changes in the Egnyte system, including new files, deletions, and modifications, and replicated them in the Box Enterprise backup without manual intervention. This ongoing synchronization ensured that the backup remained a true reflection of the live data environment.

The Alternative Scenario

Without cloudHQ, the project would have been significantly more challenging. Manual backups would not only be inefficient but also risk data being outdated the moment it’s backed up. Additionally, the likelihood of human error could lead to data loss or security breaches.


The use of cloudHQ in transferring and synchronizing data from Egnyte to Box Enterprise proved to be a wise decision. The software not only ensured an up-to-date, secure backup but also saved time and resources, allowing the company to maintain continuity and focus on growth. In the digital age, cloud backup solutions are indispensable for businesses aiming to protect their data assets effectively and efficiently.
