Cloud storage is a modern type of vault available on various servers under the name cloud. These servers tend to give you some storage space by taking some charges. These vaults are very beneficial for the people as they backup our data on clouds and ensures us that everything gets saved in the cloud. But talking about accessibility, these vaults are only run by the internet. It’s an advantage where a person can watch his documents or any media wherever he may be, but this brings some cons too. Let’s see what the benefits and the disadvantages of these e-vaults are.
When we talk about cloud storage we get a sense of relief as it comes with ample of space varying from 5GB to 50GB of cloud storage. We can save or backup our media and documents on cloud from the time we born till the time of our death. As the computer PC’s and laptops or the smartphones comes with a restricted storage space, e-vaults overcomes this problems.
As the name says, ‘Cloud Storage’ everything is saved on cloud. It doesn’t require any memory card or a memory stick. Its versatile use have made it so easy for the humans that they can access it from anywhere, but the area should be covered in internet. Anyone sitting in the corner of the world can access his media or documents under internet. If anyone has forgotten any necessary document can easily find it on his e-vault.
The process of cloud upload is very fast. Talking about it speed, whenever a new media or a document is sensed on the system, the e-vaults backups it on cloud storage. It’s very fast and convenient.
Its low cost makes it very easy to attract every customer towards it. It gives you a free storage of 5 GB and it costs merely around $5 for 50 GB. That’s very cheap for such brilliant work.
Not everyone has internet not every place is covered with internet. Yes, our pros becomes a con here, lol. Yes it true that it fails to attract customers where there is lack of connectivity. If you are stuck in the need of a document and there is no connectivity, your e-vault is of no use then
Talking about the security, this is the main cons. Security is a very major aspect when it comes to internet. Data breaches is very common nowadays. But as the cloud storages are filled with our personal documents and personal media it always concerns us about the security. But the companies of e-vaults such as Wuala and FutureVault by G. Scott Paterson comes with double end-to-end encryption and with login password. It is said by the CEO’s of these e-vaults that the company too doesn’t have any knowledge of your password. This means, if you forget your password then your e-vault is gone.
I know the cost is very less, but at the end of the day, it’s not free. We have to keep on paying according to your plan, and as everything gets back up on the cloud the storages get filled very fast and we are made to purchase the extra space on the cloud.
