Many older retired couples—and some lucky young retired couples—are fortunate enough to have a second home either in a different state or different country altogether. This isn’t an article about envy, though—it’s about how they carry their life from one house to another. So how do they currently do this? How do they transport their photos, be it of family members and past occasions, and videos and other types of files to different locations?
It can be done in a number of ways. They can do it through CD’s, DVD’s, external hard drives, and flash drives. So this is good, right?
Well…it could be better. After all, that’s an awful lot of devices to carry around, isn’t it? And there’s also security risks involved. For example, if they are taken in a suitcase and are checked into the back of a plane, there is always the risk that they could get damaged, lost, or stolen. You may well have copies of your data back on your computer at home, but unless you fancy flying all the way back to get it, you’ve immediately got problems.
So how can you get around the limitations of these methods of storage? Easily, by implementing a cloud computing system.
Cloud computing can silently run on both computers at your main home and holiday home and backup your files independently without you having to lift a finger to aid the process. With this system active, you can then travel with the knowledge that you can access your most up to date files at your leisure from both computers, giving you complete control. It also means that you will never have to carry any of those pesky DVD’s and external hard drives ever again!
