The cloud’s capabilities are numerous. Your business likely utilizes the cloud on a daily basis. But if you are looking to begin virtually storing your data in the cloud, here are some things to consider.
Know Your Cloud
Specifically, know what storage capacity your cloud provider offers, and for what price. For example, iCloud and One Drive include 5 GB of free storage. Google Drive includes 15 GB of free storage and Drop Box includes 2 GB. Remember, these numbers are not your limit. You may purchase more storage as you need it.
Protect Your Data
When you first create a cloud account, you will provide some personal information, including your email. This information and the files that you store are protected by the password you create, so make it count. Use numbers, special characters, uppercase and lowercase letters.
Prevent Storage Disaster
It’s vital that you keep files in multiple places, whether digitally or on hard drives. As sad as it is, bad things can happen. So don’t only have one copy of your storage at hand. Remember, redundancy is the key to safely storing your important files.
Your virtual storage options are endless.
