Cloud Backup Expert Tips: Finding the Best Cloud Backup and Storage Service Provider

The evolution of online backup is taking a new twist. The second decade of the twenty-first century has been conspicuously characterized by the rapid increase in the number of companies offering cloud backup & storage and offsite backup (remote backups). Many computer users and data consumers continue to be baffled when it comes to choosing among the numerous alternatives available in the online ecosystem. It is not surprising that if you’re thinking of getting a cloud based online backup and storage service, the next question that pops off your mind is, “Which one is the best solution for my needs?” Well, to answer that question, you have to put a couple of factors into consideration.

The best cloud storage provider, regardless of your specific data needs, should offer almost watertight security to your files. Before signing up with any service provider, make it your personal mission to know the encryption algorithms that they apply to secure their servers. Cases of malicious hackers and data miners making fortunes by stealing and selling classified data are on an alarming rise. OK, you may not be a popular politician or a billionaire musician, but still you will not appreciate if your honeymoon photos (or your sensitive company data) ended up on a public online blog or hacked by local or foreign based hackers. Insist on top-notch security.

Some of the best cloud storage providers have flexible rates and backup packages tailored to suit consumers, SMBs and enterprises across the board. This includes features such as subsidized subscription rates for bulk storage consumers and special bundles designed for office backup, student backup or home backup, SMB or enterprise accounts. You know that you have one of the best cloud backup & storage providers if you’re in a position to maximize all the features that your cloud subscription comes with.

An online solutions company that purports to be one of the best cloud backup & storage providers should back up their claim with a professional team of support staff always available to respond promptly to clients’ inquiries. The support staff should also be reachable 24 hours, 7 days a week. Read their customer reviews available online to find out what clients had to say on how a given service provider’s staff handles complaints or queries. It might go a long way in ensuring that your cloud based online storage experience remains hassle-free.

Some of the best cloud backup & storage providers have online platforms or blogs where new users can learn more about services, subscriptions, and packages. Again, this is not a strict requirement, but if you want the best value for your money, you will want an avenue where one can express their views, suggestions or exchange ideas with fellow users. It also makes it easier for one to gauge the suitability of a given package for their data storage needs.

Most importantly, when choosing the best cloud backup & storage solution available, pay attention to the availability of different options for file recovery in case of system glitches or uploading errors. This guarantees that you always have your files on the go, no matter the prevailing circumstances or technical difficulties experienced. Some of the providers offering the best solutions will have at least a couple of options for data backup and/or recovery at their disposal.
