A Sunny Future For Cloud Storage
There was a time not too long ago when hard drives could carry only small packages of data at a time, and storage was limited to the tiniest bits of material which hardly allows for a collection of data at all. However we have come a long way since then, all the way to storing billions of files with incredible ease. Now we have transcended towards the future of modern data storage: the cloud system. A service which is able to not only hold vast quantities of online resources but secure and transfer them to any online capable device at the press of a few buttons.
The Cloud as it’s been known to be called is a massive collection of storage space which is capable of holding almost every type of online file possible and is only limited by the amount of cloud storage space the owner possesses. For an incredibly cheap amount, cloud users can access simply unbelievably amounts of data to store and use as they like. Not only that but cloud storage offers a method of encryption in its use for the files to ensure that hacking does not occur and the files are to remain secure. With such potential for file storage, one of the only problems that comes to mind is transferring them between devices in order to access over all online capable devices. Well even this isn’t a problem as most cloud services offer automatic syncing over devices so the need for a USB to transfer files isn’t even necessary anymore. Pop in a few bonus features like auto backups and real time project editing and you have yourself one incredible service package.
Now with so much already here for us to use as we please, the next logical step is to question: where do we go from here? The answer can only be described by looking upwards: the sky is the limit for cloud storage. With such a great service, this could very well mark the end of physical files and folders completely, as they are simply a waste of natural resources and much easier to access in virtual form to begin with. But this is just the tip of the iceberg if cloud is accepted as a viable means of file transfer. It could encompass any file storage or transfer in real time. Picture a world where students can send in their assignments to the professor and have a reply within the minute that it was receives. One where people can work from home and transfer their files straight to the office and have them delivered, or even better: working on group projects as a single unit while online throughout anywhere in the world. The truth is there is simply no limit for the potential of cloud storage.
