What are the Advantages of Cloud Storage?

Streamlined Sharing

As data storage will be done in some remote location and everyone with authentication can access this data, businesses can exclusively share data with customers and colleagues by employing cloud storage in their IT infrastructure.

It is very easy to share data access amongst all connected computers in the cloud environment. All you need is to either share authentication or authorize respective computers to access that corporate or personal data.


In this time of fast forward technology, the manual operation seems very absurd. For example, storing data in external hard drives, USB or other storage mediums requires a manual approach to transfer and it’s also time-consuming. Although these approaches are currently in use for data storage, cloud computing provides a more convenient way to transfer data. Using cloud backup you can automatically transfer data to the cloud without manually uploading each file. In this way, businesses can channel efficiencies of their staff in more productive avenues. Data backups will always be automated as per the predefined schedule. The user just needs to input what needs to be backed up and when should it be backed up. Rest of the task will be handled by the cloud with due diligence and accuracy.


Cloud storage provides excellent opportunities for collaboration. Cloud environment enables multiple devices and people to view, edit or collaborate over single document or file. In such a collaborative environment, anyone at any corner of the world can access these files and collaborate in real-time.


Cloud storage offers great scalability options. It offers both vertical and horizontal scaling. The best thing is that the user will only pay for the cloud environment which he or she is using at that point in time. It is up to the discretion of the users that when do they want to scale their cloud hosting environment.

Moreover, the user also has the liberty to define the attributes of cloud scaling. This gives the user a much larger storage space and more flexible cloud storage plan.


While using the local file storage, the user can use the data which is present at a certain location. But with the cloud storage, the user can use the file at any of the permissible access points. Such access points can usually be a personal computer or a smartphone.

Synchronization and definition of access points can easily be done over the internet. This reduces the operational time of transferring data from one device to another.

Furthermore, files that are saved in the cloud storage will remain unchanged for any device or person accessing them. However, in case of any modification, the file will be updated. The modified version of that file will be readily available for anyone to access.


From the human perspective, convenience is a prominent feature of cloud storage. There is no need for the user to label or track the information that is being fed to cloud storage. All of the defined files will automatically be stored and synced over all authenticated devices. This convenience allows the user to better focus on work rather than on the vulnerability of data loss.
