Clouds

Many of you may have seen that "cloud computing" is getting a lot of press these days,  Just got an email from Amazon offering to put all my music files on the Amazon MP3 cloud system, up to 2 GB for free and if I order only one album, they up it to 20 GB again at no cost.

 

What if Marriott had a cloud where all out stuff was stored and then accessible from any device?  As I posted previously I'd like to have all my stuff in one place and not have to remember all my FF and other data as I trundle from website to website.

    Cloud computing is so immature in scope that even the might Microshaft had to call on Home Depot to help with the transformation. To this day, cloud computing is still halfed bake. And it was a very difficult transition for MS, still isn't 100% there.

     

    Marriott shouldn't jump to this solution as cloud computing really isn't buying anything worthwhile right now. 1. It comes down to either the business managing resources or 2. Someone else. In the long run, you want control of your business, whatever AS A SOLUTION it may be.

    Dear SS,

    As fellow "insider" argues, the current state of some of the critical technology may be too rudimentary to support your idea. While I sense that it would be feasible to "upload" data, I'm not so sure that it could subsequently be downloaded -if, that is, you had manipulated the original data as, for example, in having created and worked on spread sheets. Perhaps it is a prospect that Marriott should place on its "under regular review" list.

    But I'm really a complete novice in this area.  Thanks

    I have a thumb drive that holds 128 GBytes of data so I can carry around a LOT of stuff for smaller than a matchbox. Why would I wish to have my stuff "out there among the clouds" open to attack or hacks when thumb drives are so cheap, of high capacity, and extremely reliable?

    Cloudy with a chance of compromise is the weather forecast I suppose.  Thanks.  PS, I still use Google Docs!
