21st century workforce and increasing digitization is fostering each other to bring innovation, strengthening economy, and reduced cost of ownership. Technological advancement today has influenced the way users access, share, and manage their information, to a perceptible extent. It can’t be overlooked that prior to the emergence of cloud-based services, managing data across multiple devices, collaboration tools, and storage systems was a nut-cracking task for many of us. Cloud-based storage solutions provide vistas of opportunities to store and share large files across people and devices.  Individuals from all walks of life are making increased use of cloud storage solutions like DataBaGG, Google Drive, and SharePoint to support collaboration and access files when and where they need them.

Interestingly, cloud has been successful in instilling confidence in users that they will be able to upload/ edit files, and restrict access whenever required. However, all these systems are not equipped with right suite of technologies and can raise concerns about privacy, authenticity, and control.
 
Cloud helps end-users in gaining access to shared data and information, keeping data integrity intact. In the past, there were three major methods practiced by individuals to maintain access to the information:
 

However, these methods are at times inept of handling burgeoning data storage requirements. Emailing files doesn’t make any sense when large files or bulk data is involved. Carrying notebook is not always possible for users because it demands battery backup plus cautious approach to prevent it against theft. Also, remote desktop software that enables end-users to directly access their work from the comfort of their home presents a number of issues before them such as unwanted screen resolution, re-arrangement of desktop icons owing to screen size variations, and lag due to sluggish connectivity.
 
One solution that efficiently and proactively caters to all the aforementioned scenarios is Online Cloud Storage, that too without compromising on security and compliance needs.
 
Synchronization Process Fueling the Rapid Cloud Adoption
Cloud storage is integrated with automated synchronization feature that helps in creating purposeful replicas of data across multiple devices.  Right from the file systems to directories and other subsets of files get automatically synchronized allowing users to download-edit, and upload data from anywhere, anytime. Interestingly, prompt and automatic synchronization offer businesses seamless power and control to proficiently manage their files across Internet supportive devices.


To conclude, cloud storage solutions have enormous power and capability to make existing storage systems more agile and collaborated without negotiating on performance.
