The invention of CD’s and flash drives has allowed more versatility in recent years when it comes to working offsite. This has meant that employees can record data to these devices at work and freely take them home, away on business, or to other locations. This has done wonders because with this new freedom they have been able to get work done if need be over the weekends or during evenings. There are cons to this type of storage also, however.
Though CD’s and flash drives are not necessarily bulky or heavy individually, enough of them soon mean a briefcase is needed to help carry them. Other problems become apparent because of the simple reason that they can be left at work or other locations, and that it’s sometimes possible to not remember to backup the right files for offsite work. If we simply concentrate on these three problems alone, it’s not hard to summarise; traditional storage devices can be lost, are not always up to date, and can be cumbersome when carrying.
Thanks to new technology this method could soon become a thing of the past, though, because there’s a new method in town called online storage.
Online storage removes the problems faced with CD’s and flash drives. It can’t lose your files because they are securely stored on third party data centers. It will never be less than up to date due to its daily/hourly automated backups. And finally, it certainly can’t be accused of being cumbersomely heavy!
Online storage can only mean good things for businesses and their employees’ offsite working activities, so the sooner they get on board with this new technology the better.
