If you are planning to start an online business, you would want to read more about cloud based technologies and see its awesome benefits.

Cloud-based is a term where in services, applications, hosting, and storage are available to users for access via internet.

One good example is Dropbox, a cloud-based storage and at the same time back-up service that you can use to protect your files and important data online, yes, I’m sure you going to say why back-up online the fact that hackers can steal that information? Well to justify my statement are you sure that your physical hard drive can keep your file forever? A sudden power outage can kill that drive in an instant FYI. So basically, that’s one of the good example.

There’s also cloud hosting or cloud servers for those looking a good place for their websites. The good site about cloud server is the ability to handle loads from different users, and blazing fast loading time for your site because of the optimized resources compared using a traditional set-up.

Last but not the least are cloud-based apps services which is also known as software as a service (SAAS), these are various apps made for email marketing, graphics editing, video editing, social media management, which are all can be access using your browser without the need for installation to your desktop computer.

Those are just few of the many cloud-based systems that I can think of but I’m sure there are more that I haven’t covered. If you know some other technology that used cloud to operate kindly send an email or comment down below and I’ll make sure to add it to the list. I will also update this post and try to cite companies for each category, e.g., design, marketing, back-ups etc.
