Let’s dispel the biggest myths about cloud-based workflows for creative teams.
By the end of this post, you’ll know everything you need to about cloud storage for creative teams. This groundbreaking technology has plenty of momentum, but there are still some creatives who don’t understand the nuances of how it works. Here, our goal is to dispel the biggest myths and rumors about cloud storage. Let’s begin…
Myth 1: “Cloud storage is slow.”
Contrary to popular belief, not all cloud storage solutions are created equal when it comes to speed and performance. Traditional cloud storage solutions, like Google Drive, Dropbox, and others, slow you down inherently, requiring every team member to re-sync and re-download new versions of every file. However, Suite ensures that your data is instantly available to your team, every time your hit save, in Adobe or wherever you’re working. Suite offers 24 Gbps read (per user) and 10 Gbps write speed (per user), eliminating time-consuming downloads and syncs while providing a seamless experience that keeps your creative workflow moving forward.
Myth 2: “Cloud storage is unreliable.”
Corrupted file transfers, hard drives lost into the abyss of the mail, and the inevitable human error can all leave a studio scrambling to retrieve their data. Suite utilizes Transactional Writes to guarantee proper file replication with zero corruption risk. Once your media is in the cloud, it’s instantly available to your team, no matter their location. Rely upon Suite to expedite your workflow by providing a reliable, centralized hub for all of your assets—every time you need a file, you have the freedom to edit it, save it, and share it with your team in real-time, every time.
Myth 3: “Cloud storage isn’t secure.”
For media teams whose creative assets are the lifeblood of their business, safe-guarding your data is of paramount importance. Suite is built on the world’s largest cloud providers and stores your data redundantly across multiple physical locations, so there’s always more than one backup. But that’s not all. Human error can be inevitable, so we offer Time Machine, which enables teams to retrieve files exactly the way they were at any point in time in the past, down to the millisecond. Forget hard drives, storing your media in the cloud is the safest thing you can do.
Myth 4: “It's too complicated to understand.”
For creatives working with hefty media files, the notion that cloud storage isn't built for video or media work is a common deterrent. We’ll tell it to you straight-up—Suite thrives on heavy media and is specifically designed streamline workflows for creative teams. Without Suite, implementing a cloud-based workflow in your studio can be an enormous hassle, taking your team’s time away from the edit as they scramble to understand the ins-and-outs of this new technology. Don’t fret. integrates seamlessly into your current process and provides access to limitless storage tailor-made for creative use in Adobe, Davinci, or whatever platform you use to complete your work. We simplify the cloud, so your team can focus on winning the next big project.
Myth 5: “It can't handle big files.”
This myth can be true for some providers like Google Drive or Dropbox, which inherently require you to sync and re-download every new version of a file, and can even impose daily transfer limits that cap how much data you’re able to sync. With Suite, however, the sky is the limit. Whether you’re working on RAW footage for a blockbuster film, fine-tuning the edit for an upcoming television series, or crafting high-end motion graphics for an animated feature, our cloud storage provides the incredible read/write speeds that enable faster editing and real-time connectivity between users. Simply put, Suite thrives on your most demanding workloads.
As remote workflows evolve and creative teams navigate their businesses toward the future, traditional storage solutions such as on-premises servers and hard drives will continue give way to more advanced, efficient solutions. Suite centralizes every aspect of the creative process onto the cloud, so your team is always connected to your media. Really, it’s as simple as that.
