What is Cloud Storage?

Cloud Storage: How does data storage in the cloud work?

Portable storage media such as CDs or USB sticks are still in demand when making backups or transferring files to another device. More and more often however, users also rely on cloud storage solutions that allow data to be outsourced to an external server environment. But what exactly is cloud storage? And how does this storage model offered by various providers work?

On-premises software vs. cloud software

On-premises vs. cloud software

More and more private and professional PC users are faced with the question: Should I buy the software or simply rent it and access it via the internet? On-premises software vs. cloud software: Both options have their advantages – but also serious disadvantages. So before you decide on an option, you should be clear about the pros and cons. This is the only way to make the right choice.

Cloud computing

Cloud computing – what’s behind it?

Cloud computing is not just an IT industry buzzword, it’s a model that many companies already employ effectively and profitably into their organisations. A large portion of IT infrastructure is no longer managed on-site. Instead, the required services can be rented via a service on the internet. Here we provide a cloud computing definition and explain exactly how it works.

Public Cloud

The public cloud – more computing for everyone!

Cloud computing is an important aspect of digitisation. An offshoot of this technology is the public cloud, which provides storage space and IT services publicly on the internet. Data protectors see certain dangerous weaknesses in this concept, but public access offers enormous potential, and data protection concerns are increasingly stimulating innovative solutions. We explain what lies behind...

The best online backup services

Comparing the best online backup services

Many people use several devices and have data stored on them. What should you do if your data carrier fails or the data gets lost? Backing up data is extremely important and an online backup makes perfect sense. By doing this, you don’t risk losing your important files due to a system crash or criminal activitiy. What is the best option? Here is a comparison of online backup service providers.

How to Protect Access to your Cloud

Using cloud services securely

In the digital age, we are increasingly resorting to cloud services: At work, people collaborate on projects together in the cloud, and in their free time, they share photos from their last vacation. At the same time, cloud storage is by no means free from security risks. The multi-cloud environments of larger companies, in particular, are becoming a challenge for cloud security. Here, we will...

Fog computing

Fog computing: decentralised approach for IoT clouds

Traditionally, cloud solutions are designed for central data processing. IoT devices generate data, send it to a central computing platform in the cloud, and await a response. However, with large-scale cloud architectures, such a system inevitably leads to bandwidth problems. For future projects such as connected cities and smart manufacturing, classic cloud computing is a hindrance to growth. The...

IaaS: infrastructure as a service

IaaS: highly scalable IT infrastructure from the cloud

Cloud computing offers companies excellent opportunities to outsource resources. For example, the cloud model “Infrastacture as a Service” (IaaS) provides access to IT infrastracture that is traditionally provided and maintained by an external provider. This way, a complete network or data centrer can be set up without the need for your own hardware, the size of which can be scaled at any time....

ownCloud vs. Nextcloud: A Comparison

ownCloud vs. Nextcloud: comparing cloud storage services

Those who want to make use of an online storage service, while still retaining full control over their data, can do this by hosting their own cloud storage server. Two solutions that can be used on almost any server and web space are ownCloud and Nextcloud. This article explores the similarities and differences between them.
