In the age of work-from anywhere policies and global collaboration, cloud data sharing is a secure method to make it easy for distributed organizations to share data with their clients and partners. The best solutions can support collaboration with content, compliance and threat mitigation, all the while allowing for speed and scaling.

pCloud offers cloud storage and the option to create a private Vault for files that you don’t wish to be synced across all your devices. It offers a free plan with 5GB of storage and two paid plans that can go up to 2TB. Like other competitors pCloud is able to secure your data as it travels through the Internet and is stored on its servers. This means that even if someone has access to your account, they cannot access your data.

Cloud object storage platforms provide a backup that’s instantly accessible from anywhere in the world. They can also be restored in the event of there is a hardware malfunction, a liquid spill occurs or a natural catastrophe occurs. You can also search for an individual file or piece of information. They are less likely to be affected by accidental deletions or modifications.

Many systems that generate and consume data aren’t able to wait for batches of processing or overnight runs, and require data that is accurate and up-to-date at all times. Data is often stored in the system from which it was created, but it must be available instantly when needed to manage any business or gain competitive advantage. The most effective solutions will offer a multi-cloud connector strategy that can provide high levels of computation and data utilization, and a read/write strategy to reduce the costs of egress.
