Instead of storing data in house, cloud storage allows you to store them remotely and access them via the internet with any computer or mobile device. Once you store a document in the cloud you can share it with co-workers and clients to enable easy collaboration. Cloud storage services have a number of considerable benefits:
Disaster recovery – When you do daily backups and store redundant data offsite, you can protect your data and recover lost files in the case of a disaster that results in total loss. So few businesses do regular backups, if at all, that if a power outage wiped out your files or a hacker holds your data for ransom, the business may not be able to recover.
Remote access – Data that is stored in the cloud can be accessed by employees in the field and clients that do not have access to your system. This allows for quick and easy collaboration for anyone you give access to.
Scalable storage – If your business needs to store large files like video surveillance or massive amounts of email messages, remote storage is a cost effective solution to keeping these files available for use while avoiding having to store them yourself remotely.
