Moving Into The Cloud

Moving Into The Cloud | Cloud Central | Scoop.it

Cloud computing relies on sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. In cloud computing, the word cloud (also phrased as “the cloud”) is used as a metaphor for “the Internet,” so the phrase cloud computing actually means “a type of Internet-based computing,” where different services – such as servers,

6 Cloud Trends Driving Workers Out Of The Office | CloudTweaks | Cloud Central | Scoop.it

Freedom from the office and the promise of working from anywhere has been an illusion for many years. However, this illusion now seems to be closer to reality than ever before.

Kim Dotcom's Mega to Expand Into Secure Email, Chat, Video, Mobile

Kim Dotcom's Mega to Expand Into Secure Email, Chat, Video, Mobile | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
Online privacy advocate Kim Dotcom has plans to expand Mega, his new file-sharing site, to include secure email, chat, voice, video and mobile services.
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

I tend to agree with Mr Dotcom. If there is one thing that bothers me about the internet, it is privacy. That said and done, it is not going to be an easy task to get people to change their present arrangements.

 

Take email as a prime example. Out of all the free cloud email services, I find that Gmail has been superior for years. Yahoo Mail and Hotmail (now Outlook) have only just became decent competition. Yet even during the heydays when the latter 2 services were poor in most departments including security, we did not see a huge migration to Gmail.
