Cloud Computing: An Improved Solution for File Sharing and Security

For many years Internet users have been trying to figure out ways to share all of their most important files on all of their favorite Internet connected devices. While hardware developers have tried to facilitate file sharing with all kinds of transfer cables, media cards and wireless connectivity solutions, file sharing and transfers have been plagued by problems such as proprietary software systems and incompatible transfer cables. Software developers, on the other hand, have been working hard to solve these issues, creating software platforms that will allow files to be accessed and used in a variety ways on any number of Internet connected devices. Cloud computing is the latest and most successful attempt by software developers at solving this problem.


Cloud computing platforms such as iCloud are designed to facilitate file transfers in a new and interesting way. Instead of connecting two possibly incompatible devices together with a proprietary transfer cable or some wireless connectivity solution, cloud computing platforms like iCloud actually use a separate server maintained by the host company to store the desired files, allowing the account holder to log into the account via any Internet capable device that can log into the account. So, instead of the file being transferred directly from one device to another, it is actually stored in memory and held there where it can be safely accessed at any time and from any place that you can log into your cloud account at


Cloud computing systems like iCloud are on the cutting edge of file transfer systems. But cloud computing also represents a step forward in Internet security as well. When a file is transferred directly from one device to another, there is a danger that if the device becomes infested with malware or a virus, the file itself can become contaminated and unusable. Cloud computing saves your files without compromising their security. The truth is that the host server is much more secure than your device itself and your Internet connection. When you are looking for a safe and secure way to store, share and access your files, using a cloud computing platform like iCloud is your best option.
