What is a backup, and why is it useful?
A backup consists of duplicating files (photos, documents etc.) and saving a copy in a different place than the original one. Backing up your data is important to prevent it from being irretrievably lost for any reason.
For example, it can be useful to back up photos and documents on your smartphone so that you have a copy in case your phone breaks or is no longer accessible for other reasons. Backing up can also be done with data on the computer by saving it to another storage drive.

Amber is a private cloud device, which means that it allows data to be stored securely and backed up remotely, as is the case with cloud services. However, being a private device, it allows the data being backed up to remain the property of the user: in fact, unlike classic online cloud services, with Amber the user remains the sole owner of his or her data.
