Tired of Paper Work? Just File it to the Cloud.
What is Cloud Storage? Cloud storage is really a little piece of a much greater picture – cloud processing. All in all, it implies that you will be storing your information online “in the cloud,” meaning your data is stored in and accessible from multiple distributed and connected resources that comprise a cloud. By utilizing a remote database and a web association, you can access your data from various devices without needing to rely on in-house servers or storage space. When it comes to storing data, cloud storage is quickly becoming the method of choice – both for home and business use.
Benefits of Cloud Storage
We’ve broken down some of the greatest benefits of cloud storage for your business:
Flexibility – Your employees can work from anywhere and managing workflow is easy. A mobile workforce is quicklybecoming the norm in today’s world. Files stored in the cloud can be accessed at any time, from any place, providing there is internet access. Team members or field agents have the freedom to work from anywhere, using tablets, smartphones, net books or desktops. As long as they have internet access, they can upload or access information.
Reliability – While cybersecurity is a concern for everyone today, storing confidential or sensitive information in the cloud can be more secure than storing it locally. Data is encrypted both during transmission and while being stored, ensuring no unauthorized users can access files. Recovery is also easy and built in. Additionally, your original files are automatically backed up to multiple servers and in the event of a crash, can be accessed with absolutely no downtime.
Green/Paperless – Cloud storage allows you to eliminate bulky paper processes and does not take up space in file cabinets at the office.
Cut Costs – Data backup can be pricey. Especially if you are paying teams of professionals to purchase, manage and maintain expensive hardware. Online storage reduces much of the cost associated with traditional backup methods because you essentially eliminate the cost of hardware, maintenance and any salaries associated with backup/storage when you move your business to the cloud. You’ll simply pay a monthly fee for the amount of storage space you require.
