What is virtualization?
Cloud is based on ‘virtualization’ to give users more control over cloud. Virtualization is the key to open the locks of operating systems. Like you can setup a virtual computer which is windows based on your Mac. So hypothetically speaking it means that users don’t need to worry that about software running in which OS. While on cloud virtualization is important as sellers won’t know what OS will be used by customer.
What is cloud?
Cloud the so called next big thing, it has changed how people used to work. It’s one the main benefit is that it is very easy to use. It won’t be wrong to say that cloud has changed how people use to work. It has affected the way people use to travel, now you don’t need to carry your presentation in hard disk etc. It is always with you in your cloud storage. Cloud has user authentication, which means security here is very good. Even cloud is used to mitigate DDOS, so security is really not something you should worry about on the cloud.
Difference between virtualization and Cloud?
Virtualization is one of fundamental element of cloud computing, it helps cloud computing deliver what it states. While cloud computing is a type of on-demand service over the internet.
Using cloud computing is 100% safe? I would say no. Why?
- Data spoofing, someone else looking what you are doing. Your privacy can be intruded.
- Government intrusion can be biggest problem for this platform. It is said that rather worrying about privacy on cloud people should more fear from government intrusion.
- Risk of cyber-attack. Recently what happened with apple icloud has frightened people for using cloud storage.
But what cloud storage gives you is more than what it takes from you. But if you choose the correcCloud Storage has come in the eye of every person, it stores your data online on servers which are running 24×7, so know don’t need to carry them they are just not with you but still one click away. To access those files only one thing is important you need that is internet regardless of any platform you use to access those files, it can be done using PC, laptop, iPhone, iPad, android device or windows based phone. You use Linux or windows it has nothing to do with cloud storage.
It is like one of your hard disk which is located at a remote location and also which doesn’t get corrupted.
Cloud storage can be used in many ways like for backup of files, storing pictures, storing highly important office files, etc.
What is office365?
Office files are really important document, storing them on cloud solves the problem of losing them. As I earlier said security is not something that you should worry about if your files are on the cloud. Office365 cloud based office solution developed by Microsoft is one of the example. Office365 is direct rival software of Google’s application.
New Office365 is designed to take user experience to whole new level. It has encryption based on every file and also expanded data-loss prevention technology for the data stored in SharePoint online or Onedrive.
Office 365 Management Activity API gives data of who is doing what and with whose data stored online is SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, and Azure Active Directory. It makes audit easier for organization.
Cloud still has many things to provide, major companies are investing high amount of money in cloud R&D as they find that there is still a market to be conquered. It is also founded that in 2011 Microsoft had allotted its 90% R&D budget only for Cloud R&D department.
