Consulting Networks Cloud Storage works on most devices and operating systems. It is possible to use Consulting Networks as a storage app, desktop software, or directly in your web browser. Your stored data can be accessed by you on the online server whenever and wherever you need it, and across many different devices – from home, work, or on the go.

You can also access everything you've backed up on a web browser in case you don't have your mobile device or computer at hand – this is possible from any web browser, and is ideal in case you're working for or with an important client and your laptop or desktop computer fails. In this case, the web browser provides the ideal solution.

If you choose Files, select as many files as you like and click Open.
If you choose Folder, select a folder and click Upload.

With Consulting Networks, you will be able to save all kinds of files, without any exceptions. Whether this is Word or Excel documents, PDFs, video or XML files, various types of image file, or Photoshop and PSD files, Consulting Networks can store all of them, as well as many other formats. This means that you can use different programs, even on different operating systems and devices, and still store them all in the same place for secure, easy access whenever and wherever you need.

Storing large files is no problem with Consulting Networks. There is no set limit for file sizes – depending on your storage plan, you may have more space. The only actual restriction on possible space is the technically determined limits, but these are really very seldom reached. For example, if you have an Adobe Premiere Video project that you want to back up that is 10 GB, or even bigger, Consulting Networks can back up this large file without any problems. Extraordinarily large Photoshop files can also be uploaded, saved, and shared on the online file server. This makes Consulting Networks one of the best cloud storage options, with the possibility to expand when you reach your file limit.

There is also no limit on the number of files and folders you have uploaded and saved on the cloud storage. There are of course some technical limits, but these are, again, hard to reach and exceed. Furthermore, it is possible to store thousands of login files in one folder, meaning organising and managing your online file storage is easy and workable.

Generally speaking, there is no real difference between cloud storage and an online backup when you're using Consulting Networks. Consulting Networks is a cloud storage provider, which can be used for easy file sharing and as a drive – but it can just as easily be used as your online backup. This means you'll have your online backup and all your data at hand in one secure place - both your cloud storage and your online backup will be easily manageable.

There is a current technical limitation of 10 devices per operating system per account. Simply put: 10 Android, 10 Windows, and 10 iOS devices are allowed per account. This makes it one of the cheaper cloud storage options, because it allows for so many devices on one plan. Note that if you register an 11th Windows device, for example, the first one on the list is removed. So it depends on your personal needs – but it is of course possible to register all your devices!

If you wish, you can allow each of your users to back up 5 computers and 3 mobile devices using just one account– Consulting Networks is one of the best cloud storage providers due to its flexibility, and that it offers highly secure smartphone backups, as well as PC and laptop backups, meaning that you can store all your data securely, whether for personal or professional purposes.

This depends on how much data needs to be uploaded to the online data storage platform. If you have a VDSL50 connection, you'll be able to back up 1 GB per 15 minutes, and if you have a DSL6000 connection, this time increases to 30 minutes per gigabyte. Depending on your connection speed then, you can easily back up between 16 and 32 GB overnight, and to keep things simple, the backup system runs in the background without you having to lift a finger.

After the first backup, Consulting Networks only has to back up new and changed files in order to keep itself updated.

Cloud storage works with every kind of internet connection. Whether you have WiFi or LAN internet, you'll be able to carry out an online backup onto a cloud storage provider without any problems. It is good to note, however, that if you're planning to back up large video files, for example, a quicker internet connection is better. Lots of big image files will also take longer to upload, regardless of internet connection, but of course a slow connection will take longer. If you're also using the cloud storage for multiple devices at the same time, a reliable and fast internet connection will mean your cloud storage will work better.

In short, cloud storage works with all internet connections, but your usage will determine the internet connection speed you'll require.

A local backup is at risk of being damaged by physical elements, as well as malware. Having a local backup is helpful, but it is really only a basic step in ensuring the protection of your files and data – an online file storage is an essential addition. If your property is damaged in a fire or a flood, it is likely that your PC and local backup will be damaged, meaning that your local backup will have failed to secure your files. Replacing the physical damage is expensive and time consuming – but a damaged local backup may not be able to recover your saved data. It could be lost forever.

Data backed up using a cloud storage or online backup system such as Consulting Networks is not exposed to the risk of these potential hazards, because it is stored far away from your office or home in a professional data centre. This is the most significant reason to back up your data online, even if you already have a local backup – and with options to back up your data in cloud storage, you've got nothing to lose.

Furthermore, Consulting Networks is highly accessible and flexible, making it one of the best cloud storage platforms. You're able to access it any time of day, from a remote location. A local backup can only be accessed where it is physically stored, and it is difficult to share this data with more than one person at a time. This is not the case with Consulting Networks, as you can share and access the data stored on it from anywhere with an internet connection, and sharing the files is easy.

This does not mean that your local backup is useless, and you may have excellent reasons to keep your local backup. However, this does not mean that Consulting Networks would not be an excellent complement to your already established form of backups.

This is an important question – and one that Consulting Networks focuses its attention on. Data privacy is of utmost importance, and because of this, Consulting Networks offers secure data transfer through SSL256, and AES128 encrypted data storage. These measures are taken to ensure that your data is uploaded, transferred and stored to a professional level of security to add protection against cyber criminals, for example. Cloud storage is much safer than having a local backup laying in an office drawer.

On top of this, each user has their own private folders, as well as the public folders for each user on the Consulting Networks package. This ensures that there is not only a high level of security in terms of the stored data, but also enough privacy for each user so they can manage their own projects and files. Furthermore, it means that each user has the potential to keep sensitive information, such as employee details in their own private folders and that files which everyone needs can be accessed by all.
