Is Online Storage an Expensive Service?

March 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 128

The article discusses whether online storage is an expensive service or not. The information compiled here is reliable and simple. Besides, it does not inevitably express a biased view on the online storage service.

Much has already been said and written about online storage as a service and how it works to protect users' valuable digital data from man-caused or catastrophic damages. However, those who still wonder what online storage is and how it works, here is a quick glance at the term 'online storage' and its modus operandi for data protection.

Online storage, alias cloud or internet storage is a data backup & restore service that stores digital data on a remote data server (virtual data center pool), accessible via an internet connection, of a third-party host or a service provider. Compared to the flash drive or local hard drive among other traditional storage media, online storage uses the internet to store and restore the digital contents of a computer.

Thus, unlike the traditional storage media, users need not worry about keeping and constantly supervising their digital contents for damage against calamitous events like flood, theft, fire etc., viruses or malware attacks, computer crash problems, or other such technical glitches. As all the users know that such problems go hand in hand with a computer connected to the internet, they must have a proper data backup & restore system in place to avoid losing precious data and facing consequent problems.

Thus online storage can be termed as a standalone answer to all the data storage recovery problems and needs of computer users. No matter if their computers have little storage capacity, have become overloaded due to a large volume of data, or have been crashed; online storage offers them an effective and neat solution.

How affordable is online storage compared to the traditional storage media? Users including me believe in realizing full value for their money. If they don't get value for their money, they will not make another purchase of the same product or service or from the same company or service provider. They look for alternatives before making a purchase or subscription. Online storage offers

Online storage is comparatively inexpensive than the traditional storage media. With the online storage service, users need not buy additional data storage devices and spend further on maintaining them. However, they will certainly need to buy more and spend more on maintaining CDs or flash drives etc. Moreover, once these become old or bear some scratches or get lost/damaged, user will need to buy new ones and transfer data to them immediately to avoid losing data. Besides, if they have lost or misplaced their flash drives or CDs etc., they will permanently lose all their important data files, settings, accounts, or whatever was stored on them. It means more expenditure and more hassles.

However, with online storage, users simply need to subscribe to a plan of their choice and budget. They need not buy any additional data storage device or any software as their home computer connected to an internet connection will do for them. Moreover, they can access or modify their data from any online computer if they are away from their home computer. The changes will even reflect in their home computer too.

A number of companies offer monthly or yearly plans of different data storage capacities like 10GB, 20GB, and 50GB among others for varied data storage needs of individual and business customers. This minimizes users' expenditure on data storage management. Users simply need not do anything except uploading, accessing, or restoring their data via their internet browser or software provided by their service provider. Users can even share their data with others or share others' data without spending even a single penny. Moreover, a few service providers allow users to access their data from their mobile phones too.

Other than these, online storage offers flexibility and convenience that will remain absent in the external storage media. Users get a single-account access to all their files and can create or delete sub-accounts for other users in their home or office. Online storage has simplified the way users store or access their valuable digital contents like emails, contacts, documents, photo galleries, and music or video collections among other things.
