File Sharing Is a Great Way to Leverage the Cloud for Your Business

File Sharing Is a Great Way to Leverage the Cloud for Your Business

Technology is a big deal for the modern business. This doesn’t mean just your organization’s workstations and servers either. Today there is a big shift in the way that small-to-large businesses get the computing resources they need to succeed. As cloud-based offerings continue to offer organizations computing options they haven’t had before, one hosted solution stands out for the value it presents: file sharing.

Accessible storage is a big deal. Often times, the success of a business can be tied to their ability to complete work efficiently; and, cloud computing has begun to give them options to not only perform tasks remotely, but also to give organizations answers to the data delivery and protection problems they’ve had in the past. A cloud file sharing platform provides the following four benefits for any organization that depends on access to data.

Accessibility
Since the cloud is computing resources delivered over the Internet, the opportunity for an organization to gain the kind of accessible file sharing the cloud provides, at a price point that is extraordinarily friendly to the budgetary constraints that many businesses have, is a revelation. Essentially, the cloud has now provided remote accessibility to company files, on any device compatible with the file sharing platform that is deployed. This not only allows for access to information anywhere, it also provides an extra layer of value through collaboration. Workers can now work together on projects, from multiple locations, on multiple different devices. That kind of file and application access allows businesses to be more operationally agile, and can substantially build revenue streams where before, there was only cost.

Maintenance and Protection
Another major benefit a hosted file sharing platform brings is redundancy. Since your file sharing system comes as a service, the provider will handle all the major management and maintenance the computing platforms used to store data need. This not only significantly reduces costs, it provides a reliable, secure, and continuously backed-up file sharing and storage platform that your organization can trust.

Builds Efficiency and Saves Time
You know the saying, “time is money”? It’s true. For every hour your business is at work, your costs go up. By being able to access files easily via the cloud, a hosted file sharing system provides a construct to be used for operational efficiency, while still maintaining the security that every business needs from its data storage situation. The ability to access information and save it to an always-accessible storage facility speeds up tasks and promotes collaboration.

Cost Reduction
As mentioned above, the public cloud is all about providing reliable and useful applications and storage. One of the biggest benefits of file sharing in the cloud is the major cost reduction that an organization can see. Traditionally, a company would have to outlay a significant amount of capital to build a file sharing platform, but with cloud computing the file sharing and storage solutions can be obtained for a scalable monthly cost.

File sharing in the cloud is a great way to build a collaborative, productive workforce whether they work in your office or across the country. For more information about cloud computing and how it can work for your business, call the IT professionals at MERIT Solutions today.
