How do you cloud?
Choosing the right “type” of cloud service and the right provider can be a daunting task. There are several factors that go into selecting the right type of cloud for your business.
The most important considerations include:
- Comfort level with the cloud – storing your data off-site (and out of sight) where it’s managed by a 3rd party
- Sensitive nature of your data – some businesses must closely manage their data due to its sensitive nature. For example, this would include client data with financial companies and patient information in the healthcare industry.
- Disaster recovery – the need to backup critical business data to an off-site location that is separate from your place of business, providing a secondary source to access and restore data in the event of disaster.
Driven by choice, the SecureShare portfolio is unique in the industry. Users can choose a cloud solution that is optimally suited for their needs whether it be a public, private or hybrid cloud arrangement.
