Today’s Eio post in on the newest buzz word in technology, Cloud Storage.
Cloud storage stores computer data outside, or offsite, of one’s computer. One saves data to an off-site storage system, which is maintained by a third party. Cloud storage is convenient and allows for much more flexibility because the data is stored on a remote database, and you can retrieve your information anywhere there is internet access.
One main advantage of cloud storage is that it allows people to no longer rely on physical storage devices, such as external hard drives or USB flash drives. Cloud’s ability to sync files across several computers makes this an astounding advantage.
Once cloud services become more widespread, companies can pass on storage maintanance tasks, backup, and data replication to cloud service providers.
Reliability is a huge concern. If the internet crashes, or a power failure occurs, a person may be without their data until the power comes back.
Security and privacy are another concern. There is great debate going on in how to protect the user’s data private and not fall into other people’s hands.
Costs – to the small business or corporation, cloud storage services are greatly economical. But to the individual user or family, cloud services cost much too much.
