How to control data consumption using throttle cloud backup applications.

Do you know you could minimize data consumption by using throttled backup applications? i guess you didnt! If you’re backing up your data to the cloud, check to see if your backup application has a throttling mechanism. Lets go a little mechanical. A throttle is a mechanism that controls the flow of a fluid, in this context, ‘data’ either by narrowing it up or by obstructing it.  An unthrottled cloud backup solution will consume as much bandwidth as it can. Although it  might not be a biggie when dealing with small files like MS documents, it can be a real pain when you have to backup large files.
