Enterprise cloud hosting versus in house shared drive

Many businesses of the modern age rely on the use of web servers and the using a shared drive for access of its employees. It is efficient and allows smooth day to day interdepartmental transactions among the employees. Ability to share content is essential especially in businesses that cater to a big number of employees, or employees who do remote work away from main workplace.The launch of Enterprise cloud hosting gave companies the ability to use shared drive via multiple web servers, without spending too much on maintenance cost.
IT teams of different companies have ventured a lot of different ways in getting reliable and efficient resources to power the shared drive and keep the servers running smoothly. Many are faced with struggling to spend expensive cost of maintaining in-house servers, and still not getting the efficiency and reliability that’s expected by spending that much amount of money.
It all changed when business owners and internet users started using web cloud and finding the ease in using it truly beneficial for them. 
Other benefits of using web cloud are as follows:
Because it hosts multiple servers acting as back up of one another, hosting thru web cloud is smoother and much more reliable than in house local servers. When local servers act up, there is no back up to use and the shared drive may be unusable at that moment. On the other hand, web cloud is connected to multiple servers and if one fails, there are other back up servers that cover for the connection
With web cloud, any user connected to the internet can access the web server so long as they are given certain permissions and security credentials. Unlike web servers, in house hosting would require the person to use a computer connected to the same LAN or configure a VPN that allows access to that computer. This can sometimes be a hassle for remote employees.
