Whether at home, in the office, or traveling, it’s important to have have complete control and access to your data. Cloud storage gives you just that— remote access to your information at any time and any place.
What is cloud storage?
Using cloud simply means that the data is held in secure virtual servers rather than in concrete form. Cloud storage services provide an alternative to storing your data on your computer’s hard drive or other storage device. The internet acts as a gateway between your computer and the remote database hosted by DataComm Plus or other provider. Data stored using cloud can be accessed remotely from anywhere in the world if you have an internet connection.
What are the benefits of using cloud storage?
Disaster recovery. When storing data on a home or work computer, you always run the risk of losing it due to malware or a computer crash. Other disasters such as theft and fire can also lead to heavy losses. However, using cloud allows you to fully access your data, even if a technological disaster occurs.
Remote Access. One major advantage associated with cloud storage is having remote access. You can easily access your data from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection.
Cost. Services are not only inexpensive, but some are completely free. When storing data using cloud services, you won’t need to worry about buying additional data storage devices like external hard drives.
Sharing data. Storing your music and other data through cloud is a great alternative because it can legally be shared with others.
What are the disadvantages to using free cloud services?
Limited storage. For those who use free cloud storage services, limited space is provided. Storage space can be increased by paying for cloud storage services.
Security. It’s important to choose a provider to ensure that your information is kept safe and secure. Strong control measures must be put in place to avoid exposing your data to security threats. With free services, security can’t be guaranteed.
Internet connection needed. An internet connection is needed to access your data stored using cloud services. However, this can be avoided by purchasing a Wi-Fi hotspot.
