Storing data on the cloud….

Sharing data over hosted sites and cloud services in general is great for productivity and business. But, it presents a security risk. The IWGCR reports that the reliability of cloud services is good but not perfect. An average down time of 7.5 hours per year doesn’t sound like much, but it can become a hassle if you’re caught in a “lost connection” scenario. This would be a major headache because not having access to the critical documents you need for your company to function could potentially cost you time and money.

Luckily, there is an educated technology team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The Pentagon also has an advanced research arm called DARPA that is partnering with MIT to create an intelligent cloud infrastructure. Think of them like the human immune system. Your body knows when everything is running right. If a malicious substance is introduced, your body takes action to deal with it and get rid of it. If you get a bruise, swelling and blood clotting are natural ways that your body reacts to heal itself. The intelligent cloud can detect if something is not a part of its normal healthy imprint. As a result, it will find and isolate the anomaly and go to work to fix itself.

With more companies and organizations adding Mobile Video Conferencing to their ranks, the reliability  of networks matters. The “Can you hear me now” commercials could translate to “Can you see me now”. The development going on in wireless networks is exciting. Everything is getting faster. How fast can it be? Just check out this article on the study of Twisted Vortex wireless connection. This product is not going to hit consumers anytime soon, but it’s good to know it’s possible someday. As long as security development stays on pace with cloud implementation, the future of data collaboration and Video Conferencing in the field should be safe, fast, and hopefully not too expensive.
