Strongbox Data Solutions:  Future Of Data Storage And Management

Top 10 Cloud Storage Solution Providers 2017

Confronted by the constant inflow of data—both structured and unstructured, organizations have readily adopted and are constantly exploring the cloud technology for secure storage solutions. Offering countless options for augmenting the storage capacity coupled with instant elasticity and scalability, effective cloud storage solutions avoid massive investments on data centers and other hardware upgrade plans, thereby making it cost effective for organizations. The economic viability of cloud storage has been further accentuated with large organizations, to aggregate and manage large data sets from multiple sources— to make information more easily accessible.

The most notable benefit of cloud storage would be the ease of retrieving data. The device-agnostic nature of the technology makes it possible to access file systems even from remote locations, securely, thereby surpassing the limitations imposed by the conventional modes for sharing bulky file systems. Hence, cloud storage naturally becomes the most desired complement to the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend, which was initially rejected due to security concerns. The scope for adding services in the form of integrated and secure payment gateways with cloud data, has allowed organizations to leverage data stored in the cloud by exploring new business avenues. The myriad benefits held by cloud storage have compelled the CIOs to take greater cognizance of the domain, in order to deploy the best possible solutions for their organizations.

In order to help organizations choose the right cloud storage provider, a distinguished panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, analysts and the Cloud Tech Insights Editorial Board, has reviewed companies with expertise in assisting enterprises with cloud-based storage solutions. The panel has analyzed various parameters such as storage and security protocols, the file system functions like sharing among others to catalogue the finalists. In this edition of Cloud Technology Insights, we present to you the Top 10 Cloud Storage Solutions Providers in the U.S.
