Pros and Cons of Cloud Backup and the Companies Best Suited For It
By blog Apr 20 2022
More and more industries are turning to cloud storage for their data storage needs. These organizations point to its ease of use, overall savings, and ease of implementation, but there are other things that also come into play after implementation. As you consider implementing cloud storage and which service to choose, it is important to familiarize yourself with the details. This helps avoid unexpected difficulties, misunderstandings, and differing expectations.
In this article, we tackle nine of the most frequently asked questions about Tsukaeru FileBako from Tsukaeru.net.
Let’s start, though, with an explanation of online storage in general.
Online storage (cloud storage) is a service that stores data on the Internet. By comparison, on-premise storage requires an in-house information system and servers. Both of these are physical items that must exist within your organization.
While on-premise data storage systems are relatively easy to customize to meet the specific needs of your organization, they can be expensive to implement and require anywhere from weeks to months to bring into operation. They also require knowledgeable and skilled onsite personnel to manage and troubleshoot them if a problem occurs.
Cloud storage is the opposite. It is not located nor operated in-house and is slightly less customizable than on-premise storage. However, it is superior in terms of personnel requirements, the time required for setup and maintenance, and overall cost. Online or cloud storage is also advantageous in terms of data protection in case of cyber attacks and disasters, natural and manmade, both of which have become more of a threat in recent years.
However, these pros and cons are only general comparisons. When it comes time for your company to choose a service, it’s important to know which questions to ask to ensure that you will enjoy the maximum advantage and minimize the disadvantages. It’s also important to know what kind of answers you need to hear to make the best choice for your company.
The number of users for our service is unlimited. This means that you can create accounts for all of your employees for a flat fee. You can also make this service available to your business partners as needed, which is a further advantage. This gives your company more flexibility when collaborating on projects or communicating about work.
Services that charge by the number of users often result in a fee each time an account is added. A result of this is that companies are not able to take full advantage of the increased capacity and flexibility a cloud storage system can offer. By offering a service with an unlimited number of users, costs are reduced while capacity is maximized.
In addition, our cloud storage system allows companies to designate different types of users such as administrator, internal, or external. User privileges can also be tailored for your company's needs on a project-by-project basis. For example, some users may have Read-only access, meaning they can see the information but cannot change it. Others may have Write access privileges, which means they can read and change information as needed. This allows each employee not only to have their own account, but the settings allow companies to decide how to organize the accounts to their advantage.
Tsukaeru FileBako allows you to easily create links to share files regardless of their size. Simply copy and paste it into an email or chat message and share away! Recipients simply need to click the link to download the data. Users also have the option to set passwords for files that are deemed particularly sensitive, which is another choice companies can make depending on the business partner and project.
In addition, since the number of users is unlimited, one useful option is to set up accounts with external users you communicate with frequently. This gives your company the flexibility to quickly and effectively share information and collaborate.
There is no limit to the number of folders or files you can create or save within the capacity set by the contract. The default storage capacity for our users is 1TB, or 1,000GB. This is large enough to store approximately 1 million office files (1MB per file) or 100,000 one-minute video captures (10MB per file).

Just like there is no limit on the number of folders or files you can create or save, there is no limit to the amount of space available for each file as long as it falls within 1TB. For convenience and flexibility, large files can also be uploaded and shared by attaching a link in an email or chat message.
