Damashe and Michael are once again up in the clouds this week.
You are most likely familiar with this week’s topic, Cloud Storage for your Business
how much thought have you given to your business cloud storage?
When choosing to use cloud storage for your business, you should consider things like:
* Security and privacy
* Collaboration with your team
* Accessibility of your files
* Integrations with your other business tools
* and of course cost to your business
There are many cloud storage providers around these days, with a variety of features and services, but Damashe and Michael are users of two of the most well-known services, Dropbox and Google Drive. Of course Google Drive is a part of G Suite, and Damashe likes drive for sharing documents within his organization, but mostly for personal storage.
Michael uses Dropbox for external sharing with the easy to use interface for generating links and shared folders.
## Why should you use Cloud Storage for your Business
Using cloud storage for your business can ensure that everyone can access that all important file, no matter where they happen to be.
This can greatly enhance productivity, since you no longer have to email files back and forth, nor does anyone have to wait until you are back at the office to get your opinion on a project.
Damashe talks about one of the reasons he continues to use Dropbox, which is its integrations with other apps and services.
There are hundreds of apps that use Dropbox for staying in sync across multiple devices and platforms. Damashe shares a cool Dropbox-powered workflow he used after his son was born.
Michael has moved his family over to Google Drive for their file sharing needs. Another integration that uses cloud storage is Auphonic, a server-based audion processing service, used to enhance the audio quality of each show produced on the network.
