Security

Physical storage devices allow for encryption, so once files are transferred, they can only be accessed by persons who have the password to decrypt the device. These devices do not need to be connected to the internet and are therefore immune to attacks from the internet such as viruses and hackers. You are also in complete control of security because it is a physical device in your possession.

Storage prices have been decreasing substantially over the years and terabytes of storage space can be purchased for a few thousand dollars. These devices are also very safe and efficient. These advantages make it practical to complete in a one time investment to back up your files with multiple physical storage devices to ensure that ideal redundancy is built into your storage system.

Speed

Fast read times are important to be able bring up your files and work with them. Physical storage devices are connected directly to your computers which make data transfer speeds dependent on the technology of the storage device as opposed to the internet. These speeds are significantly faster than common internet connections.

Portability

Physical storage devices come in many sizes and most are light and portable. These can be disconnected, carried around the office or transported in a bag. These devices can be carried anywhere and connected to any computer system, thus making your files available anywhere that you are.

Cloud Storage

We provide two sorts of cloud services to host your digital files. These are private clouds or public clouds. The private cloud is a mix of the benefits of physical storage and the benefits of internet connectivity. Your files will be hosted locally but the power of internet is used to allow for easy file sharing and collaboration. The physical storage device can remain in one place while an internet connection is used to allow remote access to the files from anywhere that internet is available.

The public cloud requires no physical storage at your office. Everything is hosted off site where you will have 24/7 access to your files.

Online storage reduces much of the cost associated with physical storage as well as the required space and equipment. All equipment is off site and you simply pay a monthly subscription fee for the service of hosting your files. Since there is no physical presence, you can repurpose the valuable space in your office.

Information stored in the cloud is more secure than storing it locally. With public cloud storage your files are encrypted both during transmission and while at rest, ensuring no unauthorized access. The encryption used is also more technically advanced than that available on some physical storage devices. Cloud storage serves as an additional layer of data protection for your irreplaceable files. Backups are kept at a secure and physically removed location.
