Top 5 Myths About Cloud Storage

Have you heard of cloud storage off late? Do you want to store your business data over the cloud? Are you concerned over some myths that stop you from doing so? Hostgator cloud hosting busts the following myths.

This is now you know and, in this video, we are going to bust top 5 myths about cloud storage;

- Cloud is not Secure

If your cloud is well secured with all firewalls and anti-breach tools, it is ideally much more safe and secure than local storage. One of the best cloud storage providers in the market is Hostgator with highly scalable and secure cloud storage to meet all your business needs. A good cloud is one that encrypts your data and comes pre-installed with high-end intrusion detectors.

- Cloud Storage Traps your Data

Another much-believed myth about cloud storage is that your data gets trapped on the cloud. False, please! No hosting provider can trap your data. In fact, most of the hosting and storage solutions come with a privacy code that mentions nobody can store your data without permission.

Hostgator not only safely hosts your data over the cloud but also gives you the freedom to migrate to your choicest service provider along with your data with the help of several migration tools.

- Cloud Storage Is Not Eco-Friendly

Simple mathematical logic will serve the answer to this question. Rather than cooking the same pasta over three different stoves, combining it in one large dish and cooking it all together will save resources and energy. Similarly, when you host your website over the cloud and access the cloud storage, you are actually putting your bit in cutting down the carbon print. Thence, making cloud storage much more eco-friendly than individual storage systems.

- The Cloud Storage Server Has Control Over Users

In fact, this is absolutely the opposite of what happens actually! When you go for a fully managed cloud service with Hostgator, the service provider takes care of the maintenance and load distribution across the website. However, you are fully the in-charge of your website and need to monitor every single updation that is taking place.

- Only big players require cloud hosting

False again, cloud hosting is suitable for any and every business of all sizes. Especially small and medium-size companies who are looking forward to expansion can reap the best benefits of moving their system over the cloud.
