Cloud Storage And Co-Working: Building A Relationship

Cloud Storage and Co-Working: Building a Relationship

Cloud storage is perfect for freelancers. It’s perfect for students, CEOs, and stay-at-home moms. It’s also perfect when you don’t have a permanent office. That’s why cloud storage is great for co-working spaces.

Co-working has moved beyond just a place to drink coffee and respond to emails. Many cities have made co-working spaces into some of the coolest places to collaborate – and a lot of that has to do with the technology. Here are a few ways that cloud storage and co-working are building a stronger relationship, and creating different trends.

Cloud and co-working: Partnerships

Many large companies have begun to partner with co-working spaces – Verizon FiOS Internet recently partnered with HarlemGarage to offer fiber optic Internet. But Verizon isn’t the only one. Tons of spaces have Skype-only conference rooms, and are supported by Google Drive data storage, DropBox and PayPal.  Cloud storage like DropBox can mobilize Web-based information system infrastructure use across a number of businesses that may or may not share a database or shared network.

Now that open access applications have even come to include software applications via cloud computing, and developer communities share new application scripting features, the force of Web-based IS infrastructure has caught on as a mobile co-working experience.

Cloud and co-working: Mobile

With the introduction of mobile apps platforms, employees, consultants, outsourced team members, and start-ups can harness even more flexible talent. The fact that co-workers and partners can tap into a company’s shared network, attend a meeting, and deliver content from any location at any time, maximizes stakeholder decision.

Cloud and co-working: Efficiency

Synchronized data management and administration increases efficiency and effectiveness. Cloud computing has quite literally optimized the co-working process to the point that start-ups can function like established businesses.

Cloud and co-working: Long-distance support

The results to data driven strategies organized between cloud computing service providers and co-working groups are everywhere. For instance, the shared developer exchange program partnership between Cloud Elements in Colorado and Piloto151 in Puerto Rico illustrates the impact of entrepreneurial ecosystems in staging new B2B programs and support systems for start-up ventures across geo-distance.

The Cloud Elements – Piloto151 partnership reflects the virtualization trend in co-working, and the concise solution this singular model of business process infrastructure offers start-up strategists faced with multiple organizational problems. In addition to flexible participation from multi-geographical locations, cloud computing also solves the carbon footprint issue even further.

Co-working is here to stay, which means cloud computing is too. It’s only getting smarter, bigger and more instrumental for daily tasks. Keep an eye on new developments from Amazon and Google to see what the newest trends in cloud computing are – because you can bet that you’ll be seeing more from them in 2014.

One Response to Cloud Storage And Co-Working: Building A Relationship

  1. So true! And it’s even better when cloud access goes beyond storage to include big data analysis. The entire work paradigm is changing as these otherwise disruptive technologies converge.  It’s making what T-Systems calls zero distance not only a reality, but an evolving starting point for enhanced collaboration.
