Benefits of Cloud Storage
Of course, I was always aware of cloud storage and backing up files in the Cloud but I never took it seriously. but that incident made me realize how important it is to have a reliable and safe backup of everything that is precious. Cloud storage has been around for quite a while now and with the constant increase in quality, adopting a platform and beginning to use it has turned into an easy task that almost everybody should do.
Almost all Cloud Storage services give users the opportunity to share their data with other users. Some may even take one step further by giving sharing options like share links that have an expiration time or giving access to just view a certain file and not be able to copy, edit, or manipulate the file in any shape or form. Also, keep in mind that this form of sharing data is in the cloud and is instant! The moment you decide to share data with another individual, they can access it. Imagine an editor who can start working on footage the moment filming is done! This is a big step up over the traditional ways of sharing a video which meant sending the files using physical hard drives or flash storage. Cloud Storage can make collaborative work a lot easier and much more simple. Not to mention saving a lot of time which makes production and post-production a much faster process.
Moving footage and data to the cloud is not only convenient but also necessary! The reliability and safety of tons and tons of video, audio, footage, data, etc. that you can store on your cloud storage medium greatly outweigh its minor cons like the need for a relatively fast and reliable internet connection. So if you ask me, moving to the cloud is one of the best moves I made in my career and you should do it too before it’s late!
