Today, businesses of all sizes are recognizing the advantages that cloud storage can offer. The following top 5 advantages of cloud storage will provide some additional insight as to why your business should consider cloud storage if you aren’t already doing so.
“Ummmm…..I lost my laptop – now what?”. The cost of hardware aside, what is the cost of the lost data that was on the device? Cloud storage gives you greater security when this happens. Because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your device. With the right configuration, data can be wiped from a lost device to further protect your data.
2. Backup and Disaster Recovery
Businesses of all sizes can have an emergency backup plan ready in the case of disaster. Cloud storage can be used as a back‐up plan by providing a second copy of important files. These files can be stored via cloud storage and easily recoverable with any internet connection.
3. Document Control
The more employees share documents, the greater the need for high level document control. Prior to cloud storage, files had to be sent back and forth as email attachments to be worked on by one user at a time. Eventually you are going to end up with a mess of conflicting file content, formats and titles.
With cloud storage, all files are stored in one central location and everyone accesses only one updated version of the file. Greater document control means improved collaboration, which ultimately means increased efficiency of business processes and employee time.
Stored files can be accessed from anywhere via Internet connection. With an increased use of device interoperability, shared document folders can be accessed by Macs, PCs, smart phones and tablets alike. With cloud storage, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work.
The result? Businesses can offer more flexible working solutions and employees can achieve a greater work-life experience while maintaining productivity.
Cloud-based storage is ideal for businesses with growing or fluctuating needs. If your needs increase it’s easy to scale up your cloud capacity, Likewise, if you need to downscale, the reduction in storage and cost is always available.
