Technology keeps hitting us to make our daily and business life easier.
One of the most innovative and beneficial developments technology has gifted us with is “the cloud”, a type of computing that allows you to store, share and access data, programs, and files over the Internet. As long as you have an internet connection, you can access all your files and data from basically everywhere.
It is incredibly beneficial for businesses. Let’s take a closer look at 4 benefits of using cloud file sharing.
1. You can share your files!
Cloud sharing allows files that you create and upload to the repository to be viewed by anyone else with the appropriate permissions. You can even have them accessible by the public, should you wish to do so.
2. Everything is backed up!
When you use something like Google Drive, your documents are housed in servers, and those servers are backed up. You don’t need to worry about a fire burning down a Google building because your data is replicated in other places.
3. You can use online tools to modify my documents easily.
Using Google Docs with Google Drive is super simple and fast. You can modify your spreadsheets and word documents with Google Docs right on the interface and save them back in. You don’t have to use an external application to make minor changes.
4. It is cost-effective.
With an offline backup system, you need a server to house the data on. You would have to worry about technicians fixing it if things go wrong. And the list goes on! For a very small price compared to doing it offline, Google Drive is a big winner here.
Having your data and files stored on the cloud, will certainly simplify your business process and save you from endless headaches, should your systems fail.
