Cloud Computing and secure online storage

Posted by Lee on April 6, 2009

dropbox_logoOn top of the usual online places I use for pics and other low level documents, I needed access to a relatively secure storage option online. Something that would allow me to upload various files, including video clips, and that I can retrieve as and when I need them from wherever I may be. It would also be useful to be able to allow access to certain designated files, via a password system for other people. It also needed too be simple and as easy as saving / retrieving files on my own computer, while still being available from other  PC’s.  I did a bit of online research and explored a few options before settling on Dropbox.

This is ideal for my needs, as it ticks all my requirements for simplicity, flexibility and mobility, and provides a decent level of security as all data is transferred over SSL and encrypted with AES-256 before storage.

Well worth a look!
