If you are using cloudHQ to back up your data, you might wonder why cloudHQ does not have a “schedule” for backup sync pairs.

The reason is that cloudHQ real-time sync offers real-time data protection—everything is backed up in real time, and nothing can be lost.

Real-time data protection is backing up files, emails, and other data by automatically making a backup copy of every change made to that data. This means that cloudHQ is essentially capturing every version of your data. It allows the user or administrator to restore data (or a snapshot of your system) to any point in time. You can think about cloudHQ sync as very powerful version of Apple Time Machine.

Thanks to this technology, cloudHQ can create a snapshot of your data as it looked at any point in time. More info on how real-time data protection works is here.

NOTE: Here is one real-world example why real-time data protection is important.

A member of a team shared a folder in teams’ Dropbox account with important project data at 10:00 am. The folder had an unfortunate name (it looked like content that was not safe for work), so the admin mistakenly permanently deleted the folder at 1:00 pm (after lunch).

He was thinking that the folder was mistakenly created. Without real-time data protection, everything that happened between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. would have been permanently lost. cloudHQ can prevent these kinds of disasters.
