Cloud storage is the new norm, and for good reason: something that’s worked has been improved upon. So what are your best cloud options?
Whether you’ve been in business for 30 years or 30 days, cloud storage is a crucial part of your everyday operations. And surely you’ve heard of it, whether from your fellow entrepreneurs, or staff members, or you’ve had someone try to sell you on their services.
Regardless of how you’ve been introduced to the new-age cloud storage for your business, you’ve hopefully been listening with open ears. And if you’re still skeptical of it’s abilities to enhance your business’s operations, let us explain in greater detail why this is a good thing to embrace.
The benefits of could storage:
The first and most important benefit is backup. Backup in case of an unexpected crash. Or a virus. Or in the event of loss due to a natural disaster. In any of these events, cloud storage ensures your files are safe.
Here in Southern Florida, we have a history of disasters. Most recently Hurricane Irma, but hurricanes and tropical storms are the norm here. And they do some severe damage. Wouldn’t it be nice to know your files are safe? Your office, your home, and your assets might not be so lucky, but you can have peace of mind knowing that your files—and the heart of your business—will be there, ready for you once you’re able to get back on your feet.
Accessibility of documents
With cloud storage, there’s no more need to email documents back and forth. Now, multiple contributors can open the file from one single course, and can see it in its most current version.
Having your files stored on a cloud also gives you the ability to view them from anywhere. Mike could be in the office in Coconut Grove working on a document and you could check in on your drive to South Beach. You wouldn’t have to call or ask Mike to send an email—just open the file.
Because these documents are accessible outside of a single computer or file, it’s much easier for co-workers to collaborate.
Before cloud computing, you’d need to communicate via email. And you’d have to save files that others send, and then save new versions over old versions…and your folders get clogged up with unused documents.
Using a cloud service simplifies your need to one single document, saved on one single folder, accessible to anyone who’s been given the rights to access.
