Is your business struggling to maintain adequate storage space for your files? Let’s dive into the world of Cloud Computing. Cloud Computing is the distribution of IT services over the Internet. Some examples of such services are storage, databases, servers, analytics, etc.
Here are some advantages your business could benefit from by moving your data to the Cloud.
No matter how you decide to store your footage, security is a big factor to consider when choosing the right Cloud Computing provider. Since the service is hosted on the Internet, security is clearly a critical issue. Usually, when you decide to use a cloud storage service, your data is stored in the various data centers that the provider has. So, if one data center was to go down, your data would be safe as it is then transferred to another data center.
Ease of use
What’s the point of using a cloud service if it’s difficult to navigate and use?
The ability to use a cloud service should be simple and should not require additional training. Today, most cloud service providers maintain a user-friendly design that makes it easy for even the inexperienced. By using a user-friendly cloud service, you can access and share your files much faster than physical storage.
Loss of files
Tampering, stealing, or even deleting your surveillance video can be a big hassle. You could argue that backing up would solve the problem, but backing up your files could result in wasting valuable time. In the business world, time is of the essence. Why waste your time on such tasks when you can use a service provider that can minimize the work and time required? With physical storage, you should continue to back up your data regularly, while with cloud storage, you don’t have to worry about backups as your service provider creates them for you.
It’s not just the usability of the cloud, but also the fact that it costs less than maintaining in-house infrastructure to store files. The cloud is very business-friendly as businesses, small or large, can use it and take advantage of its benefits at all levels. Using the cloud would help in maximizing your budget somewhere else.
