Small businesses have had the need for data sharing since the dawn of the computer age. Where to put that data and how to share it effectively has usually been with the on-premise server. Servers allow for storage redundancy, folder level permissioned sharing and effective backups. Companies have relied on servers for years but, have been responsible for their own server maintenance and backups. These days, there is another option, the cloud.
“The cloud” can encompass many things and is the term used for the internet. File storage in the cloud is now a viable option for small and large businesses. There are many cloud-based file storage services to choose from and most can give you same level of redundancy, sharing and backups that an on-premise server can. With the cloud-based systems, businesses do not have to worry about the maintenance or backups as the are included in the price of the service offered and the permissions granted to users for access can easily be controlled via an online portal.
While there are many other factors that go into these options, choosing which option is best for your company can be a difficult decision. Frankenstein Computers can help you with that decision and all other IT matters.
