The safety of web data along with other resources should not be taken for granted, whether you are using them for personal or business purposes. And no price should be fixed to its security. With cloud computing, there are options based on locations which clients, persons or entities, can choose based on their needs. One of the most secured types of cloud computing service is private cloud.
Private clouds compose of dedicated servers exclusively leased for storage or usage of a particular client. It can be off-site, which means the servers are housed at the premises of your cloud computing service provider; or it can on-site, in which case, the client or the company has the servers within its premises.
Clouds have been a favored and deemed as a safe vessel for storage of data, tools and other web applications. There are several reasons which can be good references in helping you believe clouds are safe. They are as follows:
Cloud Is Like A Safe Deposit Box
Clouds function as a safe deposit box which a banking institution offers to depositors and consumers. The banks, offering the safe deposit box, ensure the security of the contents of each box. It implemented additional security measures which make it impossible for outsiders to penetrate and breach.
The clouds are the same. When you subscribe to a cloud computing service, the provider takes all precautionary measures to protect the data housed in the clouds within its premises to stop any fraudulent intervention or to protect the same from any phenomenon such as fire.
Flexibility In Making Decisions
Even public clouds, or those that are shared with other clients of the same cloud service provider are safe. This is why there are businesses that combine the use of private and public clouds according to their needs. For example, data that are shared among a company’s customers, can be stored in public. But for data that are crucial and classified in nature, the private clouds are used.
There are data that are safely stored in private clouds. But there are also data that according to the executives of a company should best be kept elsewhere. Whichever data should be stored in clouds is a discretionary. Although you can keep almost everything inside a safe deposit box such as documents or jewelry, you cannot keep a pricey helicopter in it. The same thing goes for the clouds.
Whenever something happens to your data stored in clouds, the cloud service provider is equipped with a system or facilities which can help you track on the activities on such cloud. This means you can check who logged in and out at what date and time and what data they may have accessed.
Clouds are accessible anywhere using the Internet. This makes it very efficient as you do not need to be exactly at your office or at the areas where the clouds are housed. Of course, to access the clouds, you need the log in details.
