There are so many cloud services providers in the playing field today, you could spend weeks or months researching and debating which cloud provider should store your critical data. The more sensitive the data, the more consideration you should put into choosing your cloud service provider. Are they reliable? Safe? How much are you willing to pay to ensure your data and files are secure and accessible from anywhere you are?

Before you decide on any service provider, here is a list of questions you should be able to answer.

Most cloud providers offer a free trial, so once you have narrowed down your list to a few possibilities, it may make sense to try out different services to see what features each has and which dashboard you prefer. Talk to a representative about all the different software programs you use, and find out how the provider can help you integrate your systems so everything works together seamlessly.
