In the age of work-from anywhere policies and global collaboration cloud data sharing is a safe method of making it simple for organizations that are distributed to share files with their clients and partners. The best solutions allow for collaboration on content, regulatory compliance, and risk mitigation while allowing for scale and speed.

pCloud offers cloud storage with the option of creating a private Vault for files that you don’t wish to be stored on all devices. The service comes with a no-cost plan of 5GB and two paid plans of up to 2TB. Unlike other competitors, pCloud encrypts your data as it travels across the Internet and is stored on its servers. This means that even if someone has access to your account, they cannot access your data.

Cloud object storage platforms offer an instant backup that is accessible from anywhere uncontrolled information propagation in the world. They can also be restored if there is a hardware malfunction, a liquid spill occurs or a natural catastrophe occurs. They also let you quickly search data for specific files or pieces of information, and are less likely to be affected by accidental deletions and changes.

Many systems that generate and consume data aren’t able to wait for batches of processing or overnight runs, and they need data to be accurate and up-to date at all times. The data is often stored within the system where it was created, but it needs to be available immediately when it is required to run an enterprise or gain a competitive advantage. The best-of-breed solutions will provide an approach to connecting multiple cloud providers that permits high levels of computing and data utilization and a read/write approach to reduce the cost of egress.
