Storage is a big issue these days. We all take photos, write documents, record videos, and download content from the internet. And as technology progresses, the amount of data used by each document, image, or sound increases with it. Instead of deleting precious electronic content, many of us are turning to the cloud.
What is this “cloud” everyone keeps talking about? Simply put, its an online location where your data has been stored. It’s not just floating around in cyberspace. It has a specific server, or centralized access point, that you can reach by using a password or security code. Basically, instead of keeping all that data on your computer, you’re storing it on someone else’s.
Many cloud services can be set to an automatic backup of your phone, computer, or tablet. This is especially helpful if something unfortunate should ever happen to your device. It allows you to access your content from multiple devices, and gives you the option to free up physical storage space.
Hikvision offers online storage for your security cameras, called CamCloud. When your security camera is recording, the images can be sent directly to their cloud server, giving you remote access to what’s happening at home while you’re at work (or at work while you’re at home). They offer personal and business plans that will allow you to store anywhere from 4 hours to 30 days worth of video, giving you peace of mind that you’ll have that content right at your fingertips when you need it.
