How Businesses Make the Most of Cloud Storage Platforms

November 26, 2018

In today’s digital world, there’s no avoiding the cloud in business operations. With so many providers on the market, including platforms from Amazon, Google, and more, how do you decide on one for your office? And, once you have it in place, how can you optimize your cloud storage space?

That’s where we can help. Here are a few tips to make the most of it.

Why Cloud Storage?

Cloud-based storage enables both large and small businesses to access information from any location on any device. A major part of the workplace of the future, this allows people to take their work anywhere they choose. Teams are no longer confined to the office. All they need to work is a Wi-Fi connection.

Beyond the ability to go mobile, moving to the cloud provides several benefits to businesses, including:

Get the Most Out of Your Cloud Storage

When it comes to cloud storage services, you’ll likely see a similar range of features across all platforms. Take advantage of the following to ensure you get the most out of the option you choose.

Backup company information

Not only do cloud services provide protection for your information, but they also stand up against server failures, accidental deletions, and natural disasters, for example. Because it’s accessible from anywhere, you will be able to continue with business as usual.

Easily collaborate & share

With a cloud storage provider like Google, all employees with access can view and edit work saved there. Rather than dealing with multiple file versions in confusing computer folders, the Google Suite (Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.) allows teams to collaborate on projects easily and simultaneously, saving time and headaches later.

Store team files

If for some reason, your IT management team loses server access, the cloud can hold copies of all your files for easy access from anywhere. Always save copies to the cloud and never worry about downtime or lost information again.

Reduce costs

With the cloud, just pay for what you need. Minimize the major investment in server setup and upkeep and instead buy the storage space you need when you need it. If your company grows, you can easily scale up without worrying about purchasing and storing additional servers.
