Cloud Storage for Business

Cloud services must be tailored for each business

Cloud storage is becoming increasingly popular for businesses of all sizes.

If you’re considering using cloud storage for your business, it’s important to choose a service that meets your specific needs. Data storage space, number of devices and file-sharing capabilities are just a few of the important considerations you need to account for.

AAG works with you to determine your specific needs. We’re committed to finding cloud solutions that deliver value and efficiency to your operations.

The benefits of using cloud storage for your business

Increased flexibility and mobility

The cloud supports remote and hybrid work environments, giving employees the freedom to work from anywhere with an internet connection.

Increased security

Data is stored in a secure, offsite location, giving your business remote redundant storage if your primary data centre is compromised.

Reduced IT costs

As the physical infrastructure is managed by the cloud storage providers, your business no longer needs to purchase or maintain its own storage infrastructure.

Increased efficiency and collaboration

The cloud provides a centralised hub for all of your data, meaning employees can easily share files and work on projects together.

Increased scalability

As the servers are managed offsite, businesses have scalable storage options and can easily increase or decrease their capacity as needed.

Convenience

With everything managed by your cloud storage provider, you’ll have more time to focus on growing your business and expanding your operations.

Our experts are ready to help your business get the best out of the cloud

We understand the importance of choosing the right business cloud storage solution.

Whether you need an upgrade to an existing cloud service or are looking to begin migrating your data from traditional on-site servers, we are here to guide you through implementing the correct solution. Once your business is up and running in the cloud, we hold regular reviews to ensure your service is continuing to deliver value to your employees and operations.

Choosing the right cloud storage service

There are a few things to keep in mind when considering cloud storage for your business.

Make sure you understand the pricing model: Depending on the provider, you may be charged per user, while others charge per month or per gigabyte of storage.

Make sure the provider offers the features you need: Some industries have regulations surrounding data storage; you must ensure that storing your sensitive data in a remote location does not break compliance rules.

Make sure the provider offers support for your platform: Some providers only support certain platforms, and may not support features such as mobile devices connecting to the server.

These are just some of the considerations that we discuss with you when helping you decide on a cloud storage solution. This ensures that the cloud storage system we recommend is the best possible fit for your business needs.

SharePoint, Azure or Google Drive?

Different cloud storage solutions all have benefits, but not all are suitable for every business.

For instance, Google Drive offers ‘free’ text and spreadsheet editing, but the overlap with Microsoft services makes SharePoint a better option.

However, while SharePoint offers a secure document management system, there are occasions when an alternative cloud storage solution may be more appropriate. Microsoft Azure is more expensive but keeps synced and cached files locally, so there are no issues with lag or slow upload or download on usually large files.

Other cloud storage providers have advantages and drawbacks; AAG helps you find the most suitable solution for your business.

Some data may not be suitable for the cloud

Businesses that use legacy software or older programs may not be able to migrate entirely to the cloud.

Older software needs a local drive to map to, so can’t be operated remotely.  In some cases, it may be possible to run an older program in a virtual machine in the cloud, but this isn’t always feasible.

When helping you choose your cloud service, we flag any data that may not be supported in the cloud and recommend alternative options for storage and backup.
