6. Cloud Storage
Cloud storage solutions are essential for organizations looking for scalability, rapid deployment, and superior information management. With cloud storage, there is no hardware so you can quickly remove or increase capacity on demand. Information is available globally from any system at any time, so you don’t have to be concerned with regional accessibility.
Emerging from the need for a more flexible and mobile workplace, cloud based solutions are transforming the way we work. Frontline workers, retail associates, frequent travelers, and many other types of mobile workers rely heavily on cloud storage solutions to access data without being restrained to a physical office.
Additionally, crisis situations like the most recent worldwide Coronavirus quarantine period, highlighted the importance of digitalization. Many organizations struggled to provide remote access to their employees, as they rely on local, physical storage solutions. With the rise of remote working, cloud storage solutions are indispensable for organizations that want to maintain business activity at all times and from anywhere.
Cloud storage solutions are also proven to deliver high security standards. Data security is of utmost importance to all businesses, especially now that many regulations like the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliances require companies to take extra security measures. Nowadays, cloud storage providers like Google Drive, OneDrive, and DropBox prove that they can deliver the same, if not higher, security standards than internal storage solutions.
