Get Off of My Cloud
Who would have thought that the Rolling Stones, back over 40 years ago sang about something concerning me about today’s technology revolution. Cloud computing, cloud storage, etc. is all the rage. Easier to be transportable between locations, less expensive hardware requirements for the home or office, etc.
But, call me skeptical. You are at the mercy of the cloud. When there’s an outage up on the cloud, no work, no data, no computing. If your Internet connection is down, no computing, no work. If your cloud provider isn’t careful, your files may be compromised and hacked.
Just comes down to, are you willing to take the risk? I, for one am doing my best to have all my data somewhere local that is accessible at all times.
