The cloud – where file sharing is limitless

Each year, approximately six billion users share over six petabytes of information contained in files using the cloud. That’s 6000 terabytes (or one quadrillion bytes!) of shared information every year.

The ability to share that much information around the globe in an incredibly short amount of time is down to the advancement in technology. To support this technology, you’ll need to get fast and reliable broadband. Virgin Media Business can offer you some of the fastest business broadband speeds in Ireland.

Let’s take a look at why having a secure, reliable and fast broadband connection should be vital for your business. Gone are the days of manual, time consuming, paper-based finance processes. We’re now in the era of the cloud – where file-sharing is limitless.

File-sharing for business

Today, we live in a golden age of information sharing where massive files that equate to thousands of pages of documents and data can be distributed securely all over the world via cloud networking. Here are just some of the benefits cloud sharing has for businesses of all sizes.

It’s cheaper

Posting files between locations, uploading data to disks or memory sticks and physically transporting the information are now in the past. Once you have a secure connection, you can share files directly over the internet in a few simple clicks.

It’s quicker

Forgot to send that finance report ahead of the video conference meeting? No problem. Over a reliable internet connection, you can transfer hundreds of megabytes in seconds.

Access anywhere

Files can be stored in the cloud, meaning they are no longer device-dependent. Anyone connected to the cloud network can log in and retrieve the data from any location on any device. Welcome to the world of the flexible workforce.


By using a reputable cloud service, you can store your files securely. If your laptop or desktop gets broken or lost, you can retrieve it all from the cloud.


In theory, there is no limit to the amount you can store in the cloud. As your company grows, so will the amount of data you need stored, making your broadband connection a vital part of your business.


By its very nature, storing information in the cloud means you won’t need to have filing cabinets, stacks of paper cluttering up your office or rooms dedicated to house servers.
