Sometimes, in order to advance technologically, it’s helpful to look at an old-school approach. Cloud storage is a great option for your organization, but you should first ensure that it is right for you and your team. While there are many free resources available online, (such as Solutions Review’s best practices articles, solutions directories, and buyer’s guides), doing things the old-fashioned way can be beneficial.

We’ve carefully selected the 10 best cloud storage books based on relevance, popularity, review ratings, publish date, and ability to add business value. Here they are in no particular order.
