The concept of cloud storage service is quite resembled to data backup on a computer network in the office. The working mechanism of computer network allows multiple computers to get linked to a set of server, enabling users or entrepreneurs to store and access files to and from the server as needed. Similarly, cloud storage is supported by an external server where you can store and access files without the fear of losing them. Cloud storage is relatively a new concept; however, its application in diverse industry verticals across the globe in a very short span of time has overshadowed the reliability of data backup on the computer network.

It is noteworthy to mention that the data backup server on cloud is not device-oriented but rather a virtualized technology that can help shield your data against some of the worst-case scenarios, such as natural calamities or malfunction in hardware and software of a datacenter where the cloud server is hosted. At the same time, you can access to data and applications anytime, anywhere if you have an Internet connection. All you need is to use a Smartphone, notebook, tablet, laptop or any Internet-enabled electronic device to access your files.

There is a revelation that cloud storage services are tailor-made to back up large amount of data, allowing business personnel to benefit from reduced operational costs and improved service delivery capabilities. For instance, if an entrepreneur has several terabytes worth of mission critical data and relies on the traditional backup technology, then he/she has to be burdened with upfront expenditure in order for purchasing an additional network server. However, cloud computing is featured with infinite storage facility, thus eliminating the need for upfront capital expenditure by companies, irrespective of size and nature of business.
