467088643More and more content and data is created daily than ever before. Like its physical counterparts, digital documents and information require storage space as well. The cloud offers a secure and scalable storage solution that’s an appealing alternative to local, physical storage options. As the paper trail moves to the cloud, discover how cloud-based storage works and the benefits to your business.

The Basics

Offered as a service, rather than storing all your data on hardware at your physical location, cloud storage includes the functions of file hosting, file sharing and remote data backup. When you engage with a cloud storage provider, you are basically renting space from them and using their equipment to host your data which is transferred via the Internet. You have immediate access to your data, just as you would if it was stored at your physical location.

Cloud Storage Benefits

181629983There are many benefits to using a cloud storage solution. One of those is redundancy, which ensures less exposure to data loss. Leveraging the scale of cloud storage gives you peace of mind knowing there are multiple copies of your data. If one server becomes damaged or goes offline, you still have access to your data via a stored copy on another server. You will also save by not having the capital expense of company-owned equipment and the operating expense of maintaining physical storage.
