Getting the Most Out of Your Cloud Storage

Posted by Sean McCabe on November 3, 2017 at 4:33 PM

Getting the most out of your cloud storage can be easy to achieve if you are paying attention. Options to cloud storage are available everywhere, and we are talking about more than just your ordinary file storage and photo location. Making your work life easy is something you should always strive for.

Probably the easiest way to get the most out of your storage is by minimizing your costs, while at the same time maximizing space. An obvious one is increasing security to reduce the risk that hackers and viruses don't ruin your day. If you have a small business, connecting your devices to it will give you the ability to access it anywhere at any time and also simplifies sending files and information to your work staff and clients no matter where you might be.

Just because you have excellent cloud storage doesn’t mean you are using it to your fullest advantage. When you don’t take the proper precautions, your business and employees can misuse your cloud storage tools. Every business owner needs to make a list of ways they’re safely and effectively using the company’s cloud storage, before data is lost or hacked.

You want to make sure that you have multiple backups. If you rely solely on cloud backup, you need a provider who backs their data up to multiple locations and offers unlimited previous file versions of their data that they can revert to at any time. Having your data encrypted and stored away securely is a smart move. Take all your devices (laptops, desktops, mobile, servers, hard drives, etc.) and do a free trial with a cloud backup provider. Taking them out for a test spin would be wise. Of course, never ever share data with unauthorized users. Make sure all employees share documents and data carefully, so those who shouldn’t have access to it, can’t potentially take advantage.

Cloud storage is attractive to businesses for its sharing and syncing of data, plus it is easy to use, and inexpensive when compared to the costs of housing and maintaining an internal server setup. Whether you’re currently using cloud storage or you’re getting set up for the first time, make sure you are getting the most out of it.
