Hi, everyone! Today I'm going to introduce you to cloud storage.

What is Cloud Storage?

Simple term that refers to online space that you can use to store your data.

Another way for keeping a backup of your files.

cloud storage

Cloud storage is a storage space available to store data on remote servers that can be accessed from the cloud (or the internet). The data is managed, maintained, and backed up remotely, for which the users generally pay a monthly or per consumption rate.

Cloud storage uses data centers with massive computer servers that physically store the data and make it available online to users via the web. Users can remotely upload their content, store them and retrieve the data as and when required. With the introduction of cloud, now you don’t need to purchase servers, external hard drives and memory stick to carry your data from one place to another.

Type of Cloud Storage

Personal Cloud Storage

Also, known as mobile cloud storage, personal cloud storage is a subset of public cloud storage that applies to storing an individual’s data in the cloud and providing the individual with access to the data from anywhere. It also provides data syncing and sharing capabilities across multiple devices.

Public Cloud Storage

Public cloud storage is where the enterprise and storage service provider are separate and there aren’t any cloud resources stored in the enterprise’s data center. The cloud storage provider fully manages the enterprise's public cloud storage.

Private Cloud Storage

A form of cloud storage where the enterprise and cloud storage provider are integrated in the enterprise's data center. Private cloud storage helps resolve the potential for security and performance concerns while still offering the advantages of cloud storage.

Hybrid Cloud Storage

Hybrid cloud storage is a combination of public and private cloud storage where some critical data resides in the enterprise's private cloud while other data is stored and accessible from a public cloud storage provider.

Challenges of Cloud Storage

Although cloud storage offers reduction in the capital investment cost, customers have to face some of the technical, integration, security, and organizational issues at various levels.

Also below fig reflected some of the concerns of cloud storage services.

1. Control over the data: Since the data is residing outside the enterprise's infrastructure, it is perceived that the enterprise may lose control over data.

2. Performance & Security: Access to cloud data is obviously limited by network throughput and latency. Data security is the biggest issue with cloud storage.

3. Suitability of applications: A kind of more static data, inactive data, such as applications that include online backup and archiving is the best fit for cloud storage. The archiving kind of data works well in the cloud because the data changes less frequently.

Technology

All the departments can use the up-to-date technologies without the help of professional technicians.

Quickly narrows the informatization gap not only between branches but also between branches and large enterprises.

Investment

The information center of cloud services is built in headquarters. All the branches can directly apply for the services, which reduces investment.

Security

Data is unified and stored in the cloud storage space, which prevents technical information leakage caused by employee turnover.

Prevents resigned employees from maliciously deleting and falsifying critical documentation.

Maintenance and Management

Data is unified and stored in the cloud storage space, which prevents technical information leakage caused by employee turnover.

Prevents resigned employees from maliciously deleting and falsifying critical documentation.
