Is Cloud the digital savior?
This was a good session. It addresses the integrity of free cloud services. The speaker asks, is it a beautiful white fluffy cloud on a blue-sky day or is it a storm cloud? We live in a world today of constant connection. We’re blessed with unlimited access to pervasive communications. We store tons of personal data on free cloud systems. Will our cloud providers become information overloads? Will they stay secure? Can we depend on them? These issues can be debated. For free cloud services, he suggests that it is important that you explore solutions that allow you to own your data and to use multiple Clouds, so you don’t put your personal data all in one spot (or all your eggs in one basket).
and here is a demo: Cloud computing with Amazon EC2
Until the next session. Stay dry SXSW
