Rapid data explosion and the necessity to keep it safer and longer will require organizations to align the protocol of management and application of their data, from development to reaching the stage of futility. Of late, storing data regardless of the volume has become possible with the support of Internet. This is because the Internet is powered with cloud technology and users are therefore blessed with cloud storage for storing all of their data in a virtualized environment. In recent times, cloud storage providers across the globe have urged businesses to use their services to provide protection and prolong the life of their data. The reason cloud storage is featured with three important attributes: allowing you to access data through Web services APIs on a non-persistent network connection, benefit from high availability of excessive storage space, and pay for what you use.     
     
Evolution of Cloud Storage
No doubt, cloud storage is an offshoot of cloud computing. The advent of this storage solution allows an individual or organization to access data from anywhere using a computing device compatible with the Internet connectivity. Meanwhile, cloud storage providers determine to provide storage varying from small quantity of data to even the entire warehouse of a company. Interestingly, providers can determine the costs of cloud storage services based on subscribers’ usage of storage space and the amount of data transfer to the cloud. There is a revelation that cloud storage providers have multiple servers up their sleeves, allowing subscribers to keep their data in secondary servers while using cloud storage services. The purpose is to ensure that the data will be made available to subscribers even anything goes wrong.
 
A Sneak Peek into the Advantages of Cloud Storage
Absence of upfront capital investment on storage devices
No need to seek technical support to take care of storage, backup, file duplication, and above all disaster recovery
High availability of data will pave the way for developing collaborative working style rather than single-handedly manage every business aspect
It is backed by rapid scalability, ensuring businesses to experience significant acceleration in the development cycle.
