What Is Cloud Storage and Why Do You Need It?

November 16, 2021

Over the past few years, businesses have been steadily transferring from using local systems to the cloud for storing and processing data. Cloud storage has become one of the most convenient and efficient methods to store data online.

What is it?

Cloud storage pertains to the space where data is stored online. It acts as a backup server to protect data and information from hard drive malfunctions and malicious hackers and trolls. This online space is across multiple remote servers that are inside massive data centers built on virtualization technology. To put it simply: it is a single unit that you can access at any time.

Why do you need it?

First order of priority: backup. When was the last time you backed up your computer? Whether or not you’re running a business, backup is a must. And you can’t rely on flash drives forever. Using cloud storage as a depository for your files will make you more at ease knowing they are safe in case your device gets broken or lost. Yes, that means if your computer crashes and breaks, you can still access your data from another device.

Easy access to the cloud is one of its most popular features. With the cloud, you can access data anywhere as long as you are connected to the internet. Even the sending of files while on the go is easy! You can give access to the file you want to share. The cloud provides a way to share files securely. You can grant viewing, editing, or commenting permissions. It can also share files that are encrypted.

Don’t worry, cloud storage doesn’t cost that much! It’s actually wiser to spend your money on cloud storage than on big hard drives. Cloud storage is a better and safer alternative to buying external HDDs.

Whether you want to use it to build your business or protect your personal files, cloud storage works specifically for anyone. Are you ready to make the most of what cloud storage offers? Let us know!
