5 Cloud Storage Services for Your Business
Cloud storage basically means "the storage of data online in the cloud," wherein a company's data is stored in and accessible from multiple distributed and connected resources that comprise a cloud.
Today businesses of all shapes and sizes use cloud storage, not only because of lower costs (you don't need to purchase, manage and maintain expensive hardware) but cloud storage can provide the benefits of greater accessibility and reliability; rapid deployment; strong protection for data backup, archival and disaster recovery purposes.
