Whether it is video or audio conferencing or remote support and maintenance, a presentation or a collaborative work on Office documents or transferring huge amounts of data, we accept or deny – All of the works are in the cloud. However, the term communication in the cloud should be narrower at this point by describing the Internet as is not as pure transport medium, but works as a platform.
Straightforward help on the Internet : Remote maintenance
In the professional setting, remote desktop such as remote maintenance is important – either to fix a problem or to explain to the employee by remote control how something works. Windows XP, since 2001, supports the Remote Desktop, but the use of the Microsoft solution is relatively complicated. The remote maintenance that is very simple, is practical with the software TeamViewer. So it is ideal for the family or friends to help less tech-savvy people quickly.Other features of TeamViewer include the video transmission, a conference call, a chat program for short text messages as well as the so-called file box. This function, which you can share individual files with others, makes especially common in online conferences sense.
Access to their own files and programs
Storage in the cloud
Storage in the cloud is convenient, however, is limited by space for free. For the most services are between 2 GB and 10 GB and even Microsoft has reduced its 25 GB in the past year. More over there are security issues. In Google Drive data, one not only can share content with other people, but “Edit” or perform “proof-reading”.
Space on the web is not only convenient for yourself to access this data. Dropbox , Google Drive , Microsoft Skydrive also allow the easy transfer of large amounts of data that needs to fit in the e-mail, such as like file sharing works via a link. The desktop software synchronize with Dropbox.
Audio-and video telephony with conferencing
Audio and video calling is also possible with just TeamViewer : Who wants to communicate during a remote session with his partner, may make use of the program’s internal functions.
Without the audio hardware, you can use the conference call. Here you call is displayed as a number in the program. Cheaper but there is usually a normal phone, also a third-party conference is usually possible. With a webcam – the notebook it is often integrated in display frame – addition to stream your own live image to the caller function. Internet telephony is almost synonymous with Skype for the home users, it is even used as a verb in the dictionary.
Dangers that Cloud Services for Your Everyday Life is Bringing Closer
So, just a post on advanced technologies, right ? Wrong. What we have said or written, to any regular user of this website will sound as abnormal tone – all of these services has the basic issues – breech of data theft, privacy issues, security issues.
The praise was for a big reason – our previous article on Comprehensive cloud security strategy we briefly described the key points of a perfect approach for cloud computing security. It was written in plain simple English for increasing consciousness about security and privacy. But the readership was very less in past 72 hours – quite abnormal for our website.
