I am a novice when it comes to cloud storage. My company is looking to move to a cloud storage platform; so, I have been doing some research on it and I am confused to how exactly does cloud storage work. So I need help in explaining to me how cloud storage works.
I am very familiar of how things work on our internal storage environment. If we have a hypothetical department that has 4 employees (Dave, Gary, Matt, Zach); each employee would get their own personal slice of the home drive to keep their own personal data and no one has access to their personal data, except them (and quite possibly the system administrator). Then there would be a shared drive, separate from the home drive, that they can share documents to others within the department or perhaps outside of the department.
Now, how would the above scenario work if my company moves from an internal storage environment to a cloud storage environment? In the research I have done so far, I am familiar that each of the above 4 employees would receive their personal cloud storage account that has a storage limit (500GB, 1TB, 2TB, etc...) assigned to it, based on a subscription plan. However, I am not understanding, how would they share documents with others in the department or even outside of the department?
Any help, tidbit, advice, suggestion would be very much appreciated. Also, if you have a certain/specific/recommended cloud storage site you would recommend, please do so. I am familiar with the popular ones (Dropbox, One Drive, Google Drive); however, if there are others that you highly recommend, please do so. I am looking for any help possible.
Thank you in advance,
