advantages

Montag, 18. Januar 2010

The advantages
the biggest advantage (imho) of cloud computing for users would be ubiqious presense of applications and data.

No need to install software

You don't need to worry about losing your work if your machine crashes

You can delegate upgrades/backups to the service provider

data can be accessed from everywhere (PC, laptop, girlfriend latpop, www)

easy interaction with other users
Montag, 18. Januar 2010

So a shiny happy new world is comming ?

Montag, 18. Januar 2010

Is this trend good from a free

software perspective ?

Montag, 18. Januar 2010

Survey
disadvantages

Montag, 18. Januar 2010

The disadvantages
the security of your personal data. Where are your files stores? By whom? In which user data might be not legislation.
encrypted
dependency on 3rd party infrastructure (hot spots, internet, lan)

hosting is highly nontrivial

too much ?

Montag, 18. Januar 2010

What can we do about it?

Montag, 18. Januar 2010

Is it possible to combine the best of both worlds?
• rich desktop with rich applications instead of web apps • social • easy deployable • data under my control but accessable from every device.

Montag, 18. Januar 2010

What do we have to do?

1. Social 2. Deployment / Access to applications 3. Access and sharing of data
