Cloud vs Physical storage?

  1. 1. Which is the better storage solution

    • Cloud
    • Physical

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to get some opinions on the best method of storing content obtained from trackers. 


I currently store them in the cloud using Plex as my media server, and considering moving it to physical storage using a NAS or something possibly with mirrored raid or raid5. Upfront cost but beneficial over the long term.

I just use external drives, although cloud-based solutions do have their uses as well (albeit I see those as very specific, like having a copy of your flight tickets or something). Wouldn't store torrented content online like that.

It all depends on what you want to store. For example, e-learning stuff and important documents in bussiness you should store physically, the rest of the stuff you can put on cloud.

      i'm gonna first mean you will receive first the account and check it and then you will pay
      after it's all good from your side

      What do you need to proceed?
      i need your favorite username, i can't upgrade account with specific email
      account i will create an account that will be like "yoursername"

      It's really last Lifetime?
      the account i'm gonna create for you come with 1 Year of Subscription (5TB of onedrive + Office365 package)
      Lifetime = Each year you will receive a new account for life
      to verify the proof of purchase after a year i can ask you a receipt of payment done by you
      what happen when it expire?
      simply, you can't upload anymore but you are able to download and view your stuff on your Cloud
      and your office 365 license expire automatically

      File synching OS support Admin features
      Price could prove a dealbreaker for some

      The features that are included in every Dropbox for Business account include:
      Unlimited file recovery and version history Editing files between users without overwriting changes Onboarding and offboarding staff members using a single existing Dropbox account Admin console for centralized management of staff accounts, report generation and account payments Reports showing activity per staff member on a timeline Integrates existing authentication using SSO (single sign-on) with Active Directory Dedicated phone support (in addition to email option) Verdict:
      While not the most expensive solution, Dropbox for Business is not cheap either as costs will soon mount up. The admin features should make the service ease to manage though. The service has a lot to offer organizations: file sharing, collaboration, backups and integration with third-party apps and services. It is a worthy competitor to the likes of Box, OneDrive and Google Drive.

      Cloud storage is getting cheaper all the time and our internet connections are now speeding up to the point where cloud storage makes a lot of sense.

      Dropbox for Business has been out for a while and aims to build on the simplicity of its consumer service with handy tools for admins to keep control of the data flowing in and out of the enterprise.

      Design, interface and accessibility

      The interface is virtually the same as the consumer offering. The service separates your business account (and folders) from your personal ones though, which means that users can partition their private data from work stuff.

      As with the personal version, Dropbox for Business offers accessin a number of ways; web, mobile apps and applications for Mac, Linux and Windows.

      Installing a client on an operating system creates a folder on that computer where data can be stored and synced to other devices. Of course, not only do these files and folders sync to a user’s other devices, the also sync to colleagues’ devices if those files and folders are shared.

      A mobile app can be installed on iOS (both iPhone and iPad) as well as Android devices, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and Kindle Fire. The Windows app was updated (to version 1.1) in February 2015 to include enhanced functionality such as the ability to share and unsure folders with other users more effectively.

      There is uniformity to how Dropbox works on desktop clients. A user’s Dropbox for Business folder is separate from their personal Dropbox folder (which makes life much simpler). The folders work in much the same way as any other folder works on the desktop; Once a file is saved to the Dropbox folder, the service goes to work to sync it to the cloud and other devices that have access to that folder.

      The mobile client also shows separate folders for business and personal.

      With the mobile client, users can view files with the app and edit them using third-party tools, the most notable of these are Microsoft Office apps. For example, on an iOS device, you can open up a file within Dropbox and from there, tap on the edit icon at the bottom. This then asks which editing app you wish to use (in this case Microsoft Word). Once editing is over and the file saved, this flips back to Dropbox.

      Moving files between personal folders and business ones (for example, you have a photo in the Camera Uploads folder of your personal account and you want to copy it to your business one) can be a bit of a faff, but ultimately possible if you invest a bit of time in switching on Dropbox as a storage provider. We tried to copy files across from other storage providers such as Box and OneDrive, but either through being denied access (as in Box) or causing the app to crash (as in OneDrive) this proved fruitless.

      The service provides business with 5TB of storage for starters (although more can be bought if needed).

      Synching and sharing files

      Dropbox is famous for its syncing and sharing features. With the business version there are more features to ease sharing securely. Settings can be changed to allow team members to share folders with people outside of the team as well as letting team members join shared folders of other organizations. Links can also be set to allow sharing with people outside of the team.
