  • IT Essentials: Cloud Based File Services – What You Need to Know


What are Cloud hosted File Services and which service should your organization consider? These services either augment or completely replace traditional file servers. They can provide additional security, ease of access, and reduced maintenance. Many organizations now realize that if your data has not been damaged or breached, this could happen in the near future. We are seeing an increase in the need for server recovery needs. In this seminar we will review cloud hosted file services, discuss their advantages, identify best practices for users and storage, and review the pros and cons of major players in this space. These include Microsoft, Dropbox, ShareSync, Box, and others. We will also review their role as part of your Disaster Recovery Strategy.

At Marcum LLP, we believe that allowing users appropriate remote access while reducing your IT maintenance needs is just as valuable as disaster recovery. In this seminar we will define both terms and review the options for file server planning. We'll also compare various options and approaches to help you decide what strategy works best for your business.

We will also discuss:

  • Benefits of Cloud Storage Options
  • Limitations of these offerings
  • Designing a network with cloud storage in mind
  • Current trends in local and remote storage.

This seminar is beneficial to IT, Operations, and Administrative professionals.
