How Cloud Storage Actually Works !!
What is cloud Storage??
Cloud storage is essentially a virtual locker, and we can store any data remotely. When you upload a file to a cloud server such as Google Drive, OneDrive, or iCloud, the file is copied to the data server over the Internet. This is the actual physical space your company has stored on multiple hard drives. Most companies have hundreds of such servers that span multiple locations, called "server farms". Therefore, if data is lost in any way, it will be backed up to another location, so data will not be lost. This is called redundancy and prevents data loss.
Where is our cloud storage?
Despite being stored in the cloud, our data still needs to be physically stored somewhere. Large companies that offer this service need large servers dedicated to storing data, but these providers do not specify where to store this data. For example, providers may be in the United States, but their servers may be in China, the United Kingdom, or anywhere in the world. Some companies outsource their server farms to satellite locations to reduce costs. Therefore, it is difficult to know where our data actually exist.
Is Cloud Storage Safe?
Even if you can store data freely in the cloud, how can you know that the data is truly safe in the hands of cloud providers?
Reliability and security are two of the most important issues for these companies.
Our data centers, which store sensitive data, use standard features such as smoke detection, fire protection and emergency power supplies.
To protect our data, cloud providers use authentication processes such as usernames and passwords to restrict access, encrypt data and protect data.
Cloud storage and cloud computing
Cloud storage only stores data on cloud-based servers via the Internet. Once the data is stored in the cloud, you can access multiple devices over the Internet. Cloud computing, on the other hand, is tied to cloud storage because it requires moving data to the cloud before using the cloud computing system. Once you move the data to the cloud, you can treat it as useful material and send it back to us. Software as a Service (SaaS) is an example of cloud computing. Here you enter software data to be converted remotely via the software interface without using a computer.
Cloud storage requires more storage space. However, cloud computing requires a powerful processor to run applications smoothly.
Cloud storage is just a form of data storage and sharing, and cloud computing allows you to remotely process and transform data. For example, writing an application remotely.
Cloud computing allows you to roll out upgrades, updates, and patches quickly, easily, and easily because you only need to run on a virtual server instead of each device.
“Firstly we need to understand what cloud computing actually is. In a nutshell, cloud computing is all about storing and retrieving your personal (or corporate) data from your own little area on the Internet. Nothing is stored on your local hard drive and it is accessible from any location, any device and at any time.
