The storage service, also called cloud storage, allows data to be transmitted and stored on remote storage systems. The data is then stored, managed, backed up and made accessible to users using the service through the Internet. This type of service is usually offered free of charge for the first GB of space (usually 15); to take advantage of more space, users can subscribe on a monthly basis.
The data that is saved in the cloud is stored in logical pools on storage servers provided and managed by the third-party cloud provider.
Are there any risks where storing data on cloud storage?
Among the risks of cloud storage is certainly the risk related to data theft by a hacker: data are stored on virtual servers, which can fall victim to attacks by malicious attackers. Cloud services, although they have very high security, are often attacked by hackers with the intention of stealing or tampering with databases.
Another disadvantage can be the monthly cost of the cloud service subscription, which has to be paid forever, resulting in the very large expense.
AmberCloud: how does it work?
How does the Amber cloud work, and how is it different from traditional cloud services?
Amber offers a hybrid cloud service: this is because the storage device is always the amber device, whether it is PRO or X.
When data is accessed, and and you are not connected to the same network as Amber, to make remote access secure, Amber provides access to the cloud: as demonstrated in the video below, data access is filtered by the cloud, which either retrieves data saved on the device or handles uploads from mobile/computer.
It is a service that offers enhanced security, as the Amber device is absolutely safe, remains inaccessible from attacks made from the public network, and furthermore the user does not even notice this little ''detour'' for access, as the passage of data through AmberCloud is fast and fluid.
