Checking the Uptime

Just like any internet server, you need to check their uptime or speed. This will give you a clear idea what to expect from them in terms of speedy service. But keep in mind that there is no such thing as 100% uptime.
Fast uptime enhances your online backup experience. You should be able to upload, download, share, sync or do whatever you want to do with your online cloud. This should be fun for you. A decent uptime enables you to have this luxury.

Help and Support

Never underestimate the power of customer service. No matter which cloud you choose, there will always be complications or glitches. That’s why a company who can be there for you when you need it is the right one.
You don’t want to be left hanging, waiting for a reply to the email you sent the company two days ago. Customer service that is helpful and useful is priceless. You can check this feature by searching for customer feedback.Keep your eyes and ears open!

Price and Budget

Many online backups provide similar services but at different prices. This is what you need to look at more closely. Only choose those cloud services that you can pay for through their whole subscription. Don’t let it get cancelled in the middle of your upload because it is proving too expensive now.

Environment Friendliness

This might sound out of context but it isn’t. Cloud companies that run their operations through green power are better for two reasons.
  1. The most obvious one is they must be environment friendly.They should not be injecting all those harmful waste into the earth’s atmosphere.
  1. Second, this way of generating and consuming power is much more reliable than its alternatives. Green power delivers more consistently than conventional ways. Why would you want to store your data where there is a high probability of things going wrong?

Reviews

This will surely get the service you really want. It is better to spend time looking for the right cloud backup than to hastily choose a flashy one. Customer reviews are far more important than the company’s advertisements. Search reviews websites, and you’ll get the right idea real soon.    

Mobile and Browser Backup

Your mobile data, emails, drafts and data on your social network is also important. You need to back it up too. There is no auto service for this; a lot of work is done manually.
Hopefully in future there’ll be many improvements in this regard. At the moment both SOS Online Backup and IDrive are offering mobile uploads for both Android and iPhone/iPad.     
There you have it. Some easy ways at your fingertips while searching for the right ‘cloud’.
