You’ve probably been hearing a ton about this omnipresent thing called “the cloud.” No, it’s not just a puffy white thing that sits up in the sky — online cloud storage is something that is growing at an extremely rapid pace, with cloud computing use expected to double by 2015, according to a study by IBM. Don’t think that the cloud is only for the technology-obsessed —whether you want to save photos of your family, videos from your wedding or PowerPoint presentations for work, cloud computing is a vital way to ensure you keep all your data safe and secure. CX is the best at it because we make it easy to put content securely in the cloud and then get it back from the cloud however you want.
Using CX is simple—after you create an account and get your first 10GB of cloud storage free, upload whatever files are important to you, and log in from any device to access them. Imagine you need to access a business document while at the airport. Since you uploaded it on your computer back at your desk, you can just grab your phone and have full access. CX’s cloud allows you to do that with ease.
At CX, we have abstracted the processes of large data storage, synchronization, anywhere access and the ability to work with others on various types of content. The CX cloud enables our users to easily store their content safely and securely. It provides reliable backup and always-on access, and it makes sharing content simple. Use it with others, and let CX take care of keeping everyone’s local copy up-to-date through our data sync features.
So, what can you use CX for?
There are so many ways of using CX, it really depends on what you are trying to achieve. For me, I have used it to provide a reliable backup of 9 years of family photos, and I also have a backup copy of all of my purchased music. Additionally, I coach a soccer team and keep all of the soccer team details on CX. This includes game schedules, rosters, call-trees, photos and much more. Whenever parents need the schedule, I can just use my phone to send them a CX link to the schedule. It means I have all the information at my fingertips.
For work, every file I work on is stored in CX. When I travel, I never have to worry about loading the right documents onto my iPad or whichever laptop I bring. Everything is available for me and easy for me to share with my co-workers and partners.
As for who it is useful for, well, that would be just about everyone. CX works hard to meet your needs wherever you are. If you just need to back up some files, you can do that on CX. If you want to plan a family reunion with friends, a CX Group is perfect for that, since it allows you to share files with other CX users. Want to use it to share your latest photo tour/vacation? Yep—CX does that, too. Need an internal live chat for your team or for your customers? CX Groups recently added that, as well. Whether you use a computer for work or play, there is something that CX can add to your toolbox.
With CX, you get plenty of storage for all your content. Storage is great, but secure storage is even better. This is one of the areas where CX outperforms the competition. To us, security is not just a feature—it is a fundamental requirement, and it is our responsibility to our users. CX provides secure transfer of your data and secure storage of your data via enterprise level encryption before the content is ever saved to disk.
From iPhones, iPads and Androids, to Windows and Macs, to Blackberry and Symbian phones, CX has a home everywhere. Today’s the best time to make it part of yours.
