Cloud Computing is a buzz phrase we hear a lot these days. All Cloud Computing means is using your Web browser instead of your hard drive to run applications to do the work you do everyday. It won’t be long until this is the norm rather than the exception.

SkyDrive and Syncplicity are not the only cloud backup I use. I also have music, photos and files backed-up on Adrive and Box.net.

One thing you might want to keep in mind about using cloud storage providers is that they could go belly-up at any time. You may recall that this happened to AOL-owned Xdrive in or around August 0f 2008. With this in mind, you may not want to consider using backing-up in the cloud as your only method of securing your data.

Once you have music, pictures and documents stored on Google Docs, SkyDrive, ADrive, Box.net or Amazon, you can download and install Gladinet Cloud Desktop to keep track of everything. Gladinet Cloud Desktop allows you to access files stored in the cloud as if they were in a local folder.

    Thanks for sharing these resources for free online backup services. Although I know off-site data backup is smart, I still wonder about security as well as the problems you mention about companies going belly up. I think describing these services as a cloud is pretty appropriate. After all, a cloud serves an important purpose but it can sure get blown away pretty easily.

    Great post – very easy to read and understand for all those wondering about backing up their data in the cloud. Like Nikki, I also have concerns about the security issues with cloud computing. However, I wonder what the next step will be that surpasses these issues and makes cloud computing, as you say, the norm, rather than the exception. Will it be the numbers of people jumping on the bandwagon, or possibly some breakthrough that prevents clouds from being blow away? Any thoughts on where the industry is headed and what will make people ready to switch everything over to cloud storage?

    Tuneup,

    I think the idea of storing files in the cloud will catch on and someday will be the “norm”. What I find is that the everyday computer user is not fully aware of this type of backup technology.
