Many is the time I’ve blogged about cloud solutions. It’s one of the true promises of the digital age that has met it’s potential at a good price.
How does the cloud help your VO business? By making your essential files available no matter where you are; by giving you a common bucket to share your files from; by providing you a simple back-up of important resources; by letting you control access traditional desktop files with a smartphone, etc., etc., etc.
See my blog: Make Your Own Cloud, and look for all the “cloud” links within.
Cloud storage plans are getting less and less expensive for more and more storage. This week, though, I ran across a promotion that blew me away… the best bang for your buck I’ve seen yet.
It’s from GLADINET.
I use a version of a Gladinet storage solution in conjunction with my Nuance PaperPort program (pdf and document management system). I’ve found Gladinet very reliable and customer-friendly.
But their newest promotion of 1 TeraByte of storage for $9.99/mo is off-the-charts the best deal I’ve seen yet.
It’s called the Gladinet Cloud Team Edition and offers the following enhancements to the cloud desktop:
- 1000GB (1TB) of Amazon storage or you can use your existing storage account
- Web browser, PC & Mac clients, file server support and mobile apps.
- Attach your local folders to the cloud and access anywhere
- Backup or sync any local folder
- Folder level permission control & share folders and files
- Share files with anyone
- Active Directory Integration
- Access your files from mobile devices and web browsers
The ‘Personal Edition’ is only $6.99/mo and offers 100Gb, and the ‘Business Edition’ offers 3TB for $12.99/mo!
See this Gladinet home page for complete song ‘n’ dance, and links to the various offers. For now (i.e. this week) this the best offer I’ve seen.
