More and more businesses are turning to the cloud for their business needs, which makes sense because cloud storage is economical and safe. If you have been shying away from the cloud because of data security issues, then let me give you a list of the service providers that I have found to be the most reliable and best online storage solutions for businesses.
One the nicest features I found with JustCloud is that it does automatic backups on all of your platforms without the user needing to do anything. This is a service that is easy to use and easy to set up. Once you get going with it, you will also find that it is easy to change as your needs change. Another nice feature is access to technical support around the clock. You would be surprised at how hard it is to find around-the-clock technical support with cloud service providers.
I like to refer to OpenDrive as "real" cloud storage because everything you do on this service sits on the cloud and is not backed up to files on your devices. You can still sync your files across multiple devices with OpenDrive, but you do not have to. To me, this offers a little extra data security in that your information is not constantly being updated to multiple platforms. It does take a little while to get used to OpenDrive, but it is the ideal solution for people who want direct access to their files no matter where or how they access the Internet.
If you have a need for a large-scale cloud service, then take a look at Mozy. There are many enterprise services available, but Mozy really does make enterprise cloud storage simple and quick. Whether you are a lone wolf working on your own or you have 100 employees, the Mozy service can accommodate you with plenty of storage space and automatic updates. The technicians at Mozy are also very helpful when you call for tech support, and the service is extremely secure.
You may have seen the Carbonite commercials on television and not thought too much of them. I will admit that their commercials did not do much for me, either. But those commercials come nowhere close to doing the service itself justice. The name "Carbonite" conjures images of an impenetrable material, which is appropriate for the level of data security this service offers. The Carbonite service is for businesses of all sizes and offers an extremely robust set of backup and storage features. You can store files of all sizes, and Carbonite can even work with your company's data server if you want it to.
I get a constant stream of clients asking me to recommend cloud computing solutions for their businesses, mostly because of my focus on security. I only talk about service providers who take data security very seriously, which, to me, creates an extremely short list. I recommend that you take a look at these four providers and compare their features to the features your company needs. As always, I strongly recommend taking your time and being confident about the service you plan on using before committing your data to a third-party provider.
