Cloud Storage

Clink Cloud by Computerlink Cloud storage is an easy way to store all your files safely online without having to resort to localised external backup disks, network storage devices or other hardware devices.

Why is this important? In short, hardware fails & viruses strike which means that you risk loosing data. Local backups are never as up to date as you need them to be when judgement day arrives. Over the last 25 years we’ve seen a number of backup faux pas. Amongst the most popular is when the backup drive is stored with the original hardware. Throw fire & theft into the mix in this situation and you’ve got yourself a potential disaster.

What do we offer?
We offer a Cloud Storage product called ClinkCloud. It comes in 3 options.
1. Single user PC/Laptop backup. Automatically backs-up your local files to a secure cloud storage location.
2. Teams User. Comes with backup option as above but also includes a network drive for file sharing between your team.
3. Managed server backup using ClinkCloud for your on-premise server.

Why not choose a different service?
Well there are a number of services on the market such as Microsoft’s One Drive. Some services are better than others but be aware as a lot of them are very consumer orientated and are not suitable for business use.
Microsoft’s one drive for business is aimed at the business sector but it has the following constraints that you don’t get with our product:
Microsoft have shaped their service around individual users so although each user has a large cloud storage area the default shared company storage area is only 10GB as default. This is also referred to as the company sharepoint site. This means that files can become defragmented & company data is no longer directly controlled by the business entity.There is also a file number limit in place which is actually more of a constraint that having a disk space quota. Currently this stands at 5000 files for a company Sharepoint site & 20,000 files for an individual OneDrive store. No individual file can be bigger than 2GB and currently there are no controls over what types of files or exclusions that get synced to the OneDrive Service. In addition if the sync gets corrupted or broken it needs to be re-created which can be a lengthy download process.

Cloud storage servers use a number of complex redundant systems which means your data is far more secure than being stored on a single disk or on a local backup device.

Bespoke data centres hold the data and are equipped with the most up to date fire and theft technologies. In most cases the data is replicated to another data centre ensuring that loss to data is non existent. This strategy also facilitates maximum uptime.
Quite simply internet communications have improved significantly which means that data can flow freely to its backup destination. This has also enabled workers to be more decentralised than before, with significant numbers now working from home and remote offices consequently making cloud storage more invaluable than ever. This evolution in the workplace has forced better collaboration between workers using these cloud storage systems.

The upshot is that it's never been easier to share data remotely and on a secure robust platform. The requirement for server VPN links is dwindling.
Each user or company if you use ClinkCloud for teams gets access to a web portal where you can manage your subscription. From here you can download the easy to install software.

Once installed simply select the files and folders you wish to protect using our user friendly interface. ClinkCloud intelligently backs up your files to a secure offsite location. Need to revert back to a change you made? File overwritten? No problem – we keep up to 30 versions of any file in the cloud – deleted files are also kept for you for up to 30 days. All files held securely in the cloud removing the headache of disk swapping, loss or damage.

If you have our ClinkCloud for teams Subscription you will also get access to a network drive letter where you can simply drag and drop your files so you can share them with your colleagues.
Most files can be stored in this way such as videos, photos and documents. Database files will not conventionally run from a standard cloud storage system although a database file can backed up to Cloud.
There are a number of services on the market such as Microsoft's One Drive. Some services are better than others but be aware as a lot of them are very consumer orientated and are not suitable for business use. ClinkCloud is suitable for business & home use.
