Three Things to Compare in a Cloud File Storage Service

You have a lot of options when it comes to cloud file storage. How can you decide which service will best fit your business's needs, both now and in the future as you grow and expand? Compare these three factors to determine what's right for you.

Avoid file size restrictions with Citrix ShareFile

First, compare the file-size restrictions. Many cloud file storage systems offer some free storage, but don't be misled. A free service won't give you the high-quality, secure file-sharing capabilities your business will need, particularly as you grow and expand. Ignore the offers for "free storage," because when you eventually need more storage, that free service's paid program might not be the best fit for you and end up costing you more in wasted money and time.

Instead of the freebies, double-check the file-size restrictions for the paid plans you're considering. ShareFile offers plans with anywhere from 5 GB to unlimited storage, and we can also customize a plan that fits your needs.

Maximum file size with ShareFile

You never want to see that dreaded "File too large to send via email" error message. Make sure that the cloud storage service you use allows you to send large files via email without having to break them down. Every plan for ShareFile comes with the capability to email large files (up to 10 GB), and the business plan gives you the ability to send 100 GB files in a single email!

When you've created a beautiful presentation, document or video, you don't want to worry about sending a lower-quality version or jumping through hoops of having to break it up into multiple parts to get the most pristine, high-quality copy to members of your team. With ShareFile, you don't have that problem.

Use any device to access ShareFile

This is especially relevant for small and midsize enterprises (SMEs) with employees who may have different device preferences. How versatile is the service you're reviewing? Of course, it should function well on the major operating systems, including Mac and Windows, but what about using it easily on cellphones and tablets?

ShareFile mobile apps are available for all iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry devices, so you have full access to your account — and all its features — on the go. ShareFile also syncs your data across devices, so you don't have to worry about misplacing your documents.

The cloud file storage service you choose should be suited particularly to your business. That's why ShareFile offers enterprise-class solutions that are tailored to meet your needs.

ShareFile clearly is the right choice for optimum cloud file storage. Get a personalized demonstration today !
