Welcome to Cloud7

You may be wondering what Cloud7 is and why your organization has decided to utilize it.

Cloud7 allows you to access all your company files and programs (apps) through a website. This means none of the files or apps you use on Cloud7 are actually on your computer (local). The files and apps are stored in a data center and accessed through the web.

Some reasons that organizations decide to implement Cloud7 are:

  1. Files and programs (apps) can be accessed from anywhere on any device.
  2. Business files are centralized.
  3. Backups are reliable and redundant.
  4. Offline access to network files is seamless.

Best Practice

We understand transitioning to a cloud platform can be difficult. However, the more you use Cloud7, the more benefits you will experience.

We strongly advise you use programs (apps) and store files exclusively on Cloud7. Do not run programs or store files on your local computer. It becomes very confusing if you use programs and store files in both places.

Obviously, the exception is if you use some software that cannot be hosted on Cloud7. In which case you will need to continue to use this program locally. You will store items in Cloud7 Files. Download the Cloud7 Files PDF.
