Why You Should Use The Cloud At Home

Published on 29 April 13

Installing a cloud service onto your home computer may be the most sensible thing you can do. It enables you to access files from any device, so long as it has a connection to the internet and you have the log in details to the online cloud service.

Below are some facts on how installing cloud services on to your home computer and devices can connect you to everything you need, effortlessly and securely.

You donât have to spend time transferring files to CD-ROMs, USB sticks or memory cards.

Transferring files from your computer to another computer or device through CD-ROMs, USB sticks or by memory cards can take a while. Technically, it takes twice as long. This is because it takes time to upload the files onto the CD-ROM, USB stick or by memory card and then takes the same amount of time to be downloaded from the CD-ROM, USB stick or by memory card onto the other device.

Using a cloud service however, couldnât be simpler. You simply drag and drop the files you want to transfer onto the cloud in a web browser window, or through a folder on your computer if you have the cloud service as a desktop application. In fact, if you really wanted to do it the most complicated way, all you then have to do is select the files one by one to be uploaded. Itâs still so much easier than through a physical device.

You can access all your devices when you are connected whenever, wherever.

The cloud is now a well-known and widely used service, its universal. This means that most modern day devices, such as mobile phones, laptops, desktop computers and game consoles all have the ability to use the cloud.

Itâs secure, and you wonât lose your files.

The problem with having files and data on something physical is the fact it can be easily misplaced and lost. Especially when USB sticks comes as small as they do. The cloud however, is very secure. You need to have a password to access your space. Some cloud services offer more security for your space, so make sure you read up about different competing servicesâ security promises before signing up for one.

You donât have to be limited by memory.

Most memory cards, USB sticks, CD-ROMs and other similar technology solutions have a fairly low memory limit. So do email attachments, so that getting a file from one computer to another doesnât have to be done by email. Instead, the cloud is big and vast, and although you will be limited by the memory you have in the cloud, you can always buy into higher limits when your limit is reached.

You can work from home hassle free.

It is great having all your files easily accessible on the cloud for emergency situations, like when you are unable to go into work. Unfortunately, it does happen though, be it your child being home sick, itâs a snow day or youâre unwell to travel, but well enough to work. In these cases, having access to your workâs cloud services could mean youâre not missing out on a day of work, and still earning money.
