Scalable WordPress Hosting
Storage has always been a scarce resource until recently. With the advent of cloud storage and access to high-speed Internet, you can access unlimited storage at a fraction of the cost. You no longer need to purchase big storage servers and maintain them. All your data can be stored in the cloud with no maintenance and hardware troubles and expenses. Companies like GeekBee are offering fast, convenient, reliable and affordable cloud storage services.
Let us explore some of the benefits of cloud storage:
Cloud storage is a lot cheaper than buying hardware. It is cheaper than owning and maintaining a storage server. Also, if you plan on owning your own hardware, it will incur electricity costs and you will need high-speed Internet as well. Additionally, you will also need to employ someone to take care of that hardware.
Cloud storage is easily scalable. You can buy higher tiers or revert back to a lower storage package. Scalability comes at a very high cost when you own and maintain your own servers. To increase storage, you will need to purchase hard drives and then you need to be sure that there are compatible free slots on your server to accommodate additional hardware.
No Maintenance Costs
Since cloud storage solutions are offered by big companies, they have the resources to maintain their hardware more professionally. They can even afford redundant storage, which in case of emergency or maintenance, can be deployed. Having multi-tier redundancy means your data is safer than ever. On the other hand, if you use your own servers, it will be costly, and any added redundancy will cost you even more.
Cloud storage servers are always online with the most reliable multi-line Internet access. You can ensure that your servers are always online. Still, you will need to add and consider additional hardware like air conditioning, humidity control, uninterrupted power supply, generators, and high-speed Internet connection with a backup connection line.
Some cloud storage companies now offer version control. Usually, when we are trying to make changes, we save each file with a version number or a new name again and again so that if needed, we can go back to a previous version. You do not need to save multiple copies of the same file anymore. With version control, you can now switch to an earlier version while still having a recent copy of the file as well.
Safety and Security
Safety and security are two of the most important aspects when it comes to valuable data. You do not want anyone to compromise your data’s safety, nor you want your data to fall into the wrong hands. With cloud storage, you do not have to worry about someone breaking into your office and stealing a copy of the file. Your data is no longer on your hard drive. It’s in the cloud, protected by a strong password. No one can alter the contents of your file without you knowing about it, even if the right password and access were used; with version control, you will be able to know if someone made desirable and acceptable changes or not.
In conclusion, we would say that there are a lot of benefits of cloud storage. Whether you are an individual, a small firm, or a large full-scale business, there is a package suitable for you. From remote access to on-demand resources available to lots of savings on hardware costs, cloud storage offers numerous advantages.
