DATA STORAGE Cloud computing is not a third party data ware house. rather than being hosted on services. Cloud Storage is a are extended to be accessible through the model of networked computer data Internet. the resource may span across have to care about the complexities of multiple servers. virtualize typically involves over-the-Internet the resources according to the provision of dynamically scalable and requirements of the customer and expose often virtualized resources. The data stored in cloud may frequently updated by the user by insertion. convenience to users since they don’t Physically. These cloud applications use storage where data is stored on multiple large data centers and powerful servers virtual servers.

Without redundancy. Because which only provide binary results about computers occasionally require the storage state across the distributed maintenance or repair. 1. it's important to servers. Cloud storage systems generally . We rely on modification attack. the new scheme could access their information at any supports secure and efficient dynamic given time.

The server then either drastically reduces the communication sends the files back to the client or allows and storage overhead as compared to the the client to access and manipulate the traditional replication-based file files on the server itself. of data error. delete and append. malicious data users’ data in the cloud.

Extensive security and performance It is an effective and flexible analysis shows that the proposed scheme distributed scheme with explicit dynamic is highly efficient and resilient against data support to ensure the correctness of Byzantine failure. the challenge-response protocol in store the same information on multiple our work further provides the localization machines. distribution techniques.

but also the The two biggest concerns about amount of storage each company offers to cloud storage are reliability and security. to crack encrypted information. You're probably familiar with several most hackers don't have access to providers of cloud storage services. and their storage: numbers seem to increase every day. the amount of computer though you might not think of them in that 5 .

Not • CONCERNS ABOUT CLOUD only are there a lot of companies STORAGE competing to provide storage. Holloway/Getty Images use a complex algorithm to These servers store Electronic Health encode information. which means they David S. Here are a few well-known There are hundreds of cloud companies that offer some form of cloud storage providers on the Web. While it's possible records of patients instantly. Clients aren't likely to entrust their data to another company without a guarantee that they'll be able to access their information whenever they want and no one else will be able to get at it. clients seems to grow regularly. including: • Encryption. most systems use a combination of techniques.

it doesn't have much of a to access information stored on the chance -. many people worry that data saved on a remote storage system is vulnerable. There's always the possibility that a hacker will find an electronic back door and access data. The other big concern. have multiple levels of authorization. which die by their reputations. Cloud storage companies live and • Authentication processes. Hackers could also attempt to steal the physical machines on which data are stored. • Authorization practices the client If a company can't meet these basic client lists the people who are authorized expectations.there are too many other options cloud system. 6 . is just as important as security.
