All of us have used a computer. Before, it would be a question of whether we have done that once or twice in a week. But today, computers have become a significant part of our lives that it is almost impossible not to use them. We rely too much on computers that if before, we would always want to have physical copies of whatever files we have, and we just save them there. And we expect that they would be kept for eternity: our family photos, old files, scanned copies of important documents—everything.
Thinking that our files are safe inside our own computers is cool but we need also to consider that there are a lot of factors that could affect file storage. Human errors for one and of course, the ever so threatening: a computer virus. So, what do we do? The old way is for us to store them somewhere else. It could be a floppy disc from about some ten or 12 years ago, an external drive, or a flash drive. But just like the mother unit which is our desktops or laptops, these storage tools are also prone to damage like physical tampering or virus. Thus, they cannot really provide a long term solution. So, our computer experts came up with an idea that makes use of the universal technology used by our computer systems: the Internet.
Introducing cloud services, in Singapore, it is already finding popularity. For some who are not familiar with this new and currently growing technology, cloud service being popular in Singapore, or in any part of the globe for that matter, is a type of data processing that involves uploading of stored file or information to the Internet as its backup copy. It means setting up an online storage folder that can be accessed anytime, anywhere, by any person connected to a certain network without the need for an actual physical storage device. Moreover, what is even good here is that once a file is accessed via the cloud computing procedure in Singapore, that document may be edited or modified in real time. Which means that any person who would access it remotely could automatically get the updated copy. As long as a person has Internet access, has the online storage password, and a device, be it mobile or a computer unit, he would be able to look at the document in there.
But is data safe? Of course. Just like in any other filing, it has a password. In addition, it can grant limited access to the file. If someone is interested in trying this, there are actually free cloud services available for download; however, these offer only a limited space and functionality. Should a person or a business need a larger storage area with higher confidentiality and security protection, then this cloud service may need to be set up by a computer networks professional. It would be such a good investment because an online copy of documents is a good way of managing files remotely. Moreover, this is immune to destruction and unwanted tampering, too.
