Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Cloud Storage

If you haven’t backed your computer up to the Cloud yet, what are you waiting for? The simplicity of the Cloud is as easy as plug and play. Upload your files to the Cloud from anywhere you have an internet connection, and you can access them on the go. The Cloud also acts as a backup server to protect you and your information from hard drive malfunctions and malicious hackers and trolls. If you need more convincing, read our top 5 reasons why you should be using Cloud storage, if you aren’t already.

Hacker Protection

More and more hackers are targeting businesses of all sizes. Of course there are ways to protect yourself if your computer gets hacked. Whether it’s your personal information they’re after or your clients’, you can protect everyone’s identity when you store their information on a separate server in the Cloud. Cloud storage services offer another level of encrypted protection that will keep hackers out of your business.

You’ll earn more credibility with clients who will see you as fully capable of their business when you confirm that they’re information is protected in the Cloud. And you can rest easy at night knowing that your identity and profits are protected as well.

Hard Drive Failures

Computer malfunction is inevitable. As the landscape of the digital world constantly changes, and as new tablets, smartphones, and laptops hit the market, older computers cannot always compete. Websites become incompatible, software updates can overwork old systems, and sometimes user error can break a computer flat out. However, just because the system breaks does not mean you have to lose everything in the process.

Uploading important information to a Cloud server will protect those files from the inevitable failure of the hard drive. If your computer breaks, you can access the information from another – you can even access it from your smartphone – when you back it up to the Cloud. You can’t predict when a computer will break, but you can protect yourself and your business by planning ahead and using Cloud storage to your advantage.

Stay Organized

You do not need to store your entire hard drive in the Cloud. Only the most important information. Family photos, business portfolios, even payroll and inventory information can go in the Cloud, but you can be the judge of what goes in and what doesn’t. This handy feature will help you stay organized. Without thousands of files clogging your hard drive, you can better visualize your business goals, your creative portfolio, or your family’s finances.

The Cloud allows you to create folders in which to organize and store information, and you are the designer of your own Cloud storage layout. Uploading your information to the Cloud could just be the motivation you need to clear out that old hard drive and better organize your most important documents.

Share and Access Information Anywhere

For small business or people on the go, the Cloud’s easy access becomes one of its most popular features. With Ross Backup, we offer a mobile app for your storage that allows you to access your information anywhere you have 4G or WiFi connections. With ease like this, you can conduct business from anywhere. Al fresco lunch meetings can be fruitful when everyone can gather the information they need right at the table, and working from home becomes a breeze when you can reach the Cloud server from any device.

Even sending files on-the-go is easy. You can choose to email someone directly or simply give them access to the part of the Cloud you want to share. This is where your organization will come in handy. Designating who gets to see what is another great feature that not only makes sharing information easy, it also protects you from unwanted peeping toms looking to steal personal information.

Save Money

At the end of the day, Cloud storage can and will save you thousands of dollars. You will not have to fork out the funds to rescue files and information from malicious malware or broken hard drives. You can save money on your virus protection services because you’ll be using Cloud back-up to give you the extra security you need, and you won’t need to train a high-level tech team to protect your systems or use the Cloud.

The Cloud’s ease of access and user-friendly interfacing makes it easy for even the least computer-savvy person in the office to use. And while cloud storage cannot fully replace virus protection or tech support, it does protect your uploaded information should anything go awry on your end, which means you can spend less on your tech support needs and more on the things that really matter.

Whether you use it to build your business or protect your cherished family memories, Cloud storage works specifically for you. How you plan on personalizing your Cloud is completely up to you, but these top 5 reasons should convince you as to why it’s a good idea.

Prior of reading this, I already have strong belief that having a cloud storage is very important. Anyhow, I am still sharing this post to keep others informed and make a change.

Of all the points discussed here, I feel like the issues related to physical hard drives are the most notable. No matter how reliable drives are, eventually, they're going to stop functioning, which is why a feature such as the cloud stands out to me.

Yup, the article was very well-written. When I shared the article to my colleagues, they loved it. Thanks.

Wow! the reasons you mentioned here are also my reasons why I chose to use cloud storage for my media files. The very incident that made me switch to online storage was when my files were corrupted because I only saved them on my hard drive. As a video editor myself, I highly recommend using ProMAX. My ProMAX experience has made me realize that using centralized storage helps your video production team since it provides easy access to all your media files.
