Our father is not very computer savvy so to explain him the point of cloudHQ we told him the following story…
While cloud computing and keeping files over the web in sync have only been around for a just a couple of years, the concept is not a new one.
Back in the 1930s when there were no computers, a company could have multiple offices located in different parts of a town, or even across cities. Each office is responsible for a certain function in the company, but they also need to share documents between offices.
To do this, they had secretaries copy and re-type documents to be sent via courier to the other offices around town. The courier will be responsible for delivering the updated set of documents to each office, keeping them ‘in sync.’
Now, offices are not in different parts of a town, but they are in the cloud; the offices are different cloud services like Google Docs, Dropbox, SugarSync, and Basecamp. The documents that need to be shared between offices are held in different cloud services like Google Docs, Dropbox, and Basecamp, making it an even tougher situation than before. Also documents need to be protected against fires, floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters.
So what’s the 21st century solution?
The old reliable courier is now cloudHQ, keeping your documents and files updated across computers and different cloud services automatically – without your secretaries having to re-type them!
Also because documents are now replicated and reside in multiple cloud services they are 100% protected against malicious or accidental deletions.
Try cloudHQ today and give the courier a rest 🙂 Keep your Google Docs, Dropbox, and Basecamp assets safely backed up and synchronized.
