Benefits of Cloud Storage

Why it’s a Better Choice than the Alternative


Why cloud storage? The question should be, why carry around hard drives, clutter your drawers with files, and risk not having something when you need it? There are many benefits of cloud storage. Here are a few that help make life a little easier.

What’s in the Cloud

Download your files—spreadsheets, documents, videos, images, music, and more—to a dedicated server for storage. Access these files from any device—computer, smartphone, tablet—that can access the internet. Share these files simply by sending a link or access code to the portal page online. Never have to save data to a disk or drive again.

Benefits of Cloud Storage

When you save data to the cloud, you don’t have to worry about:

  • Using multiple disks or drives to hold all of your files
  • Using a machine that doesn’t recognize these drives
  • Losing these disks and drives
  • Breaking the disk/drives
  • Letting others borrow these drives to share files

Instead, you benefit from the following:

  • Optimized workflow. All data is easily accessible by multiple parties to share and edit work.
  • Organized information. Search capabilities make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
  • Easily integrated. With no external devices needed to ensure compatibility, cloud storage is easy to implement into your daily processes.
  • Remote capabilities. Access files wherever you are, as long as you have internet access.
  • Backup capabilities. Don’t worry about losing files stored on your computer or phone when you back it up in the cloud.
  • Cutting costs. Many cloud services providers offer a certain level of free storage. Even if you decide to pay a fee for unlimited storage, it saves you the time, money, and headaches or buying, losing, or breaking an external device.
