Cloud storage is becoming more and more popular as it is easy to use, cost effective and eliminates the need to maintain expensive data storage hardware.

Cloud computing or “the cloud” is where different services such as servers, storage and applications are delivered to your computer and/or device through the Internet. Read more.

Benefits: Businesses that use cloud-based storage are often financially motivated. Once, businesses were required to purchase their own hardware equipment, however in the cloud (with your chosen third-party provider), you only pay for the storage capacity you use. This model makes it easy to quickly scale your use up or down.

Recommended: If you are looking for a secure provider that enables you to share and store your files, take a look at BoxDropbox, Google Drive, Hightail and SugarSync.
