Your company could save $500 to $750 per month with a 50 user teamFor a look at what those numbers mean, let’s assume your organization has 50 employees. With Box and Dropbox business FSS, you get unlimited storage space, but at $15 per user you’re paying $750 per month! Google Drive is a little more affordable at $10 per user or $500 per month for unlimited storage. But, do you really need unlimited storage? It’s pretty unlikely.
Here’s why: Most of the files stored in business-grade FSS are productivity documents such as Microsoft Word or Excel files. Published estimates state that 1 million Office documents consume roughly 300 GB of storage—less than half a TB. That’s a lot of docs! Even if those 50 employees created that many files over time, there’s no reason all of them need to be stored and synchronized forever. Older files that are longer being used can and should be archived to free up space.
To promote Datto Drive, our partner Datto, is offering a free terabyte of cloud FSS storage for one year to the first million companies that sign up. After a year, companies will pay just $10 a month for a TB for unlimited users. So, how does that compare with other business-grade FSS services on the market today? Take a look:
Consumer-grade FSS (file sync and share) services offer the file sharing and collaboration tools that users need but aren’t typically powerful enough for businesses. These tools don’t make the grade when it comes to features companies want. There are business-grade solutions that exist but they are priced out of the range of most small to midsized businesses. To meet the needs of SMBs we are offering enterprise-class FSS at a very low price point.
So, if you are currently using a consumer file sync and share tool but want enterprise-class features (i.e. security, expiration date, auditing, etc.) or if you’re currently paying too much for business-grade FSS, Datto has you covered. Learn more and sign up today.
