You need access to all your data anytime and anywhere. Here services like Barracuda Copy could be beneficial. It lets you store your precious data and make them available anytime, anywhere and across all the devices.

The software for PC systems: The Barracuda Copy comes as a web-based console as well as a desktop app. Both provide you easy navigation across all the PCs running Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X (10.17+), and Linux. With the simple and clean interface, it enables you to access all your files as well as other files/contents shared with you.

Uploading a file or folder is easy, just browse the files and select to upload. The upload speed is also good, taking only 1 minute and 29 seconds to upload a folder of 1.29 GB from PC to cloud, and while downloading the same folder, it took about 1 minute and 19 seconds from cloud to PC.

Mobile device access: The app is available for multiple platforms including iOS, Android, and Windows. The app works similar, and you get access to all the files and folders. Uploading and downloading files are quite easy across all the devices. It took about 1 minute and 17 seconds to upload a folder of 1.29 GB from smartphone to the cloud, and while downloading the same folder, it took about 1 minute and 14 seconds from cloud to a smartphone.

One window for personal and professional use: The service lets you use the single window for both personal and professional purposes. You can keep your personal and work data completely separate from each other and can access them seamlessly from a single login.

This comes integrated with LDAP that makes it simple for administrators to manage users and groups, and all company content. Admin can easily revoke access to users at any time, like when employees leave the company.

Smart syncing: Barracuda Copy syncs only incremental changes to supercharge performance and reduce bandwidth usage. While testing the smart syncing of the service, it works really well and detected the previous files and added only the new ones. Top it off with revision history that allows unlimited access to prior versions of files, and you have a solution that helps increase productivity.

Advanced features like secure sharing, source validation, and identity verification etc. protect your files that can only be seen by the people with whom you want to share.
