    Default Secure, off-site "cloud" storage?

    Hello,

    I am searching for information from current self storage managers and/or owners regarding the use of "cloud" storage.

    We are trying very hard to go paperless this year. We have just incorporated Docusign and love it! They keep a copy of the rental agreements on their server, and a copy is emailed to me. However, we have had a couple of customers who rented from far away, where we have emailed them the lease agreement and then they signed and emailed it back. The owners want these documents put somewhere secure for future reference. They like that Docusign has the other contracts, but they are concerned about these non-docusigned contracts being lost in a fire, theft, etc.

    I am familiar with and use jump drives and portable external drives for use as backing up data. However, with the increase in remote or "cloud" storage that is available today, I am searching for something less physical to meet our needs to store these rental agreements not managed by Docusign.

    Do you have experience with anything of this nature? How secure is it?

    Thank you,

    Jim

    I thought docusign was suposed to be the answer to this problem, using docusign at to sign the lease from the tenants own computer?

    MZC&D,

    Docusign works perfectly for leases signed at the office. My quest is for a way to store the contract when it is NOT done in Docusign.

    Take care,

    Jim

    Dropbox or box.com are both good options. Dropbox you have to pay for more than a certain amount of space, not sure about box.com. Look into both, one of them should solve your problems.
