Some small businesses may be content reaching a limited size. But many more see growth as a top priority. If you want your business to grow, you have to have the right infrastructure in place, which includes the right data solutions for storing and accessing your business’ data. The right solution will be easy to use and understand, secure, and able to grow with you.

Cloud Data Storage
Turning to the cloud as a data solution can be intimidating for small business owners, but more and more it is becoming the only feasible option, especially for businesses that want to grow and need a solution that scales. On-premises data storage might feel more secure, but once you start adding employees, applications, and clients, you will keep needing to add more servers and possibly upgrade software to make sure you have enough room.

The other option is cloud storage. That means you purchase space on an off-site server to store your important data – from documents like contracts and business plans to cloud-based applications that are used across the company. Cloud storage makes accessing your data easier, even as your company grows.

Cloud Data Solutions & Security
Security can be one of the biggest concerns you have as a small business owner who is considering a cloud-based data solution. You can hardly turn around today without seeing another news story about a major hack or data breach. And if huge companies like Target and Sony are susceptible, how does a small business like yours stand a chance?

The good news is that there are security options that are available and attainable, even for small businesses. Because these cloud storage options integrate office applications with mobile devices, they eliminate the need for third-party mobile apps that can lead to data loss or hacks. This is especially useful for those businesses that rely on a mobile workforce with remote employees or just workers who are always on the go.

Good cloud data storage options also have the benefit of segmented access so that you can set up who gets to see what. Internal employees are treated to different access than clients or partners, which keeps things even more secure. That means you can safely store contracts and other sensitive data in the cloud without worrying about who will have access.

How Cloud Storage Scales
When your business grows, your cloud storage grows with you. There is no need to purchase new servers. Depending on the data solutions you choose, you might have to upgrade your storage subscription over time, but it’s extremely easy to do. That makes keeping your data in the cloud the best possible choice for businesses that are growing fast.

Choosing the right cloud data solution for your growing business can be a challenge, but once you know how it works it’s easy to see how it can scale quickly and easily to meet your needs without compromising security.
