Having recently disposed of just about all my hardware except for a Nexus 7 and a Chromebook, I have become more reliant on the cloud than ever, and one of the pivotal services that looks to help me complete the transition is the recently discovered cloudHQ.
In a nutshell, the online service (which includes a nifty Chrome extension) syncs files between all the major players in cloud storage, currently being:
- Google Drive
and a couple of others.
Everything you expect would be there for this process to happen seamlessly is there, including an intuitive UI reminiscent of IFTTT.
Besides working in the cloud and having a need for online storage and the related services of multiple providers, some files are just so crucial to my work, for example, the backups of my clients’ WordPress sites that are sent to Dropbox via the equally wonderful WP plugin UpdraftPlus — that I want my backups in multiple locations.
For this, and many other scenarios I can think of where I could get more granular, syncing between different accounts and folders, maybe even between some of my clients and employees, cloudHQ seems the ideal solution.
Especially since all the heavy bandwidth transfers take place on their servers.
There are several key elements that need to be in place, in my view, for more users to move wholly to the cloud as I have. One of these is having the applications you need. Another could be, perhaps, adequate performance of these applications. For storage, well, with the combination of the extant cloud storage providers such as Drive and Dropbox, along with powerful add-ons like cloudHQ, in terms of myself, well, my new destination is already in the cloud: I’ll see you there.
