Cloud file storage pros and cons

Cloud storage appeals to small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and larger enterprises as a less-expensive alternative to equipping and managing a full-blown storage system. Two possible uses for the technology are cloud file storage and cloud backup. Imagine being able to move years-old PowerPoint presentations and human resource manuals from your local file system into an inexpensive, cloud-based storage system that someone else manages and secures for you.

In this podcast, Jeff Boles, senior analyst and director, validation services at Hopkinton, Mass.-based Taneja Group, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of cloud storage, who the top vendors and cloud storage service providers are, and which environments shouldn't use cloud storage.
