The Benefits of Managed Cloud Storage

Cloud computing continues to soar to new heights as more businesses have adapted to it in some form. According to Gartner, 65% of application workloads will be optimal or ready for cloud delivery by 2027, up from 45% in 2022.

Let's face it: cloud is integral to innovating and maintaining a competitive in this increasingly digital world. Managed cloud storage is a solution high-in-demand provided by cloud service providers which encompasses taking responsibility for managing and maintaining the storage infrastructure and services on behalf of their customers. This type of storage is typically offered as a cloud-based service, and it differs from traditional on-premises storage solutions in that the management of the storage hardware, software, and infrastructure is handled by the cloud provider.

Managed cloud storage offers several key benefits that make it an attractive option for businesses and individuals, wihch include:

1. Scalability

Managed cloud storage allows you to easily scale your storage needs up or down based on your requirements. You can start with a small amount of storage and expand as your data grows, without the need for significant capital investments.

2. Cost Efficiency

With managed cloud storage, you pay for the storage you use, making it a cost-effective option. There are no upfront hardware costs, and you can avoid the expenses associated with maintaining and upgrading on-premises storage systems.

3. Data Security

Cloud storage providers invest heavily in security measures to protect your data. They offer features like data encryption, access controls, and compliance certifications to help keep your data safe from unauthorized access and breaches.

4. Better Performance

Performance is optimal with quick upload/download speeds and private network options.

5. Reliability, Redundancy

Leading cloud storage providers offer high levels of data redundancy and backup, reducing the risk of data loss due to hardware failures. 

6. Data Management, Backup & Accessibility

Many managed cloud storage solutions offer built-in data management and backup features. This simplifies data management tasks and ensures that your data is regularly backed up. Managed cloud storage is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
