The cloud. It’s a term that’s become so common, it’s now part of everyday conversation. For many, it inspires thoughts of some far-off place that holds all our files, photos and other data.
But what is it exactly? And where is it? Without knowing the ins and outs of a cloud-based service, it’s hard to feel confident that your data is completely secure.
Cloud-based storage generally involves a third party hosting your data in multiple servers at another location. This means you can access your data from any desktop or mobile device with Internet access, giving you a lot more flexibility for last-minute changes or quick alterations. It’s also an extra security measure for recovering data quickly and effectively in case of unexpected disasters.

We have four levels of file management plans with storage options that can even be set to unlimited capacity. Our system enables you to upload, store and send business files up to 100 GB with business clients and employees.
