Unlimited cloud storage is increasingly important for personal and business storage-seekers with high quantities of files and digital assets. It’s important to compare different options and discover their features as well as their potential negatives. Here’s a list of four unique systems to consider.

1. Acronis

Acronis is a complex cloud storage system that opens up a lot of possibilities for users looking to backup data and files in the cloud. It offers unique storage and backup methods that secure multiple data fronts for personal and business storage. The most noticeable positive attribute is Acronis’ raw speed. Users get exceptionally quick upload speeds on the cloud servers.

The downside of Acronis comes in the form of the security and lack of a strong mobile inclusion. Companies won’t be willing to trust sensitive data to Acronis exclusively. It’s a cost-friendly system but it seems to linger between personal and business use – too much for personal, not quite enough for business.

DAM gives companies unique features that boost searching, sharing and collaboration within a central storage library on the cloud.

3. Carbonite

Carbonite is a cutting edge cloud storage system, offering unlimited storage for personal and business needs. Companies trust Carbonite due to its secure storage, committed support teams and backup functions. Where Carbonite thrives is its user-friendly interface and setup. Carbonite has a fluid intuitive interface that lets users navigate their storage seamlessly. The implementation of Carbonite is also painless and is self-explanatory.

Carbonite unfortunately lacks sound sharing capabilities for its users and their stored files. Companies require fast sharing and syncing when uploading to their cloud systems, so this limits a lot of the software’s potential. Carbonite is a superior option to basic cloud storage but it still has some major issues. Be aware of the negatives associated with it before trusting this tool with your important data.

4. Dropbox

Dropbox is a widely popular cloud storage program that offers unlimited storage and a lot of fresh features. It lets users share files from a personal computer onto a cloud database. It’s a great way to quickly save hard drive space. It has a nice desktop-based interface system as well as a powerful web browser system.

Dropbox has some security deficiencies.

One major problem with Dropbox is its security. Companies that use the unlimited storage on Dropbox are likely to store, at some point or the other, sensitive files on the system. Unfortunately, Dropbox is a big target for hackers, being that it’s the most popular cloud storage system on the market. Even though they’ve increased their security features recently, the fact remains they’ve had some major breeches and this shouldn’t be ignored by anyone.

Use these systems to build your library of digital files on the cloud. Determine which software best fits the needs of your company before implementing.
