Introduction of SharePoint

Microsoft SharePoint is a web-based application. It can be very useful for file sharing, business intelligence, advanced search, content collaboration and more. Users can upload a file to SharePoint and immediately share it with others who need to see it. Links to shared files or collaborative spaces can also be sent via email, making it easy for users to be quickly directed to what they want to see.

Normally, SharePoint can help the businesses that use it to improve data management, streamline business functions, guarantee compliance and data security, and increase productivity. In addition, SharePoint has a similar user interface to Office 365 and is known for its ease of use and great user experience.

Companies love using it to create websites. This is because it can be used as a secure place to store, organize, share and access information from any device. And to achieve this, all you need is a web browser.

Why Do We Need to Sync SharePoint to Cloud?

Since many users regard SharePoint as a safe platform to manage files, users must have a lot of important data on their devices after a long period of use. Sometimes, you need to work with your files on another device or share them with others at any time. Thus, syncing SharePoint to the cloud storage becomes very essential. 

Moreover, it avoids inconsistencies in the endpoints used by users and makes it easier for them to manage their data. 

Why We Choose Google Drive?

Nowadays, there are lots of cloud storage services on the market such as OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, and so on. You can choose to sync SharePoint with OneDrive or Dropbox, but we tend to recommend you to sync SharePoint to Google Drive. So why do we choose Google Drive?

Google Drive and SharePoint are not quite the same in terms of both how they display data and where it is stored. Google does this through My Drive and Shared Drive, whereas SharePoint centralizes data within a site that teams can access and work on.

Besides that, Google offers Shared Drive, which operates in a flattering way but is much easier and simpler to use. Google's shared drive is centralized, which allows businesses to host content with permissions in a centralized way.

In addition, your data will grow and expand with long-term use. SharePoint tends to struggle with indexing and handling large amounts of data, whereas Google Drive is better suited to handling large volumes of files and data.

After the above, you must have learned the benefits of syncing SharePoint to Google Drive. Do you need to migrate from SharePoint to Google Drive now? Continue reading to do it.
