Northwest Self Storage Moves to the Cloud

CLACKAMAS, Oregon, April 1, 2019 — As part of its ongoing digital transformation, today Northwest Self Storage (NWSS) announced it will be moving all existing inventory—including the contents of all customers’ self-storage units—to the cloud. Cloud-based storage has exploded in popularity over the last few years as it frees up physical infrastructure and enables quicker access to stored content.

“We decided it was time to get our heads out of our units and into the cloud. The move to cloud-based self storage is the logical next step in our journey,” said NWSS Operations/Marketing Manager Paul Johnson. “We’re excited to be extending this opportunity to our customers.”

Effective immediately, all NWSS units will be housed in the troposphere, or the level of the earth’s atmosphere where clouds are formed. The move will eliminate the need for zoning and building permits, and will keep customers’ stored items safe from earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters.

To compete with the likes of Apple and Amazon, NWSS will give customers the opportunity to add more storage at varying monthly rates. “The troposphere gives us a lot more room to work with,” Johnson said. “In addition to our competitive cloud storage rates, we’ll be providing an extra long ladder to all existing and future NWSS customers.”
