Cloud desktopWhen do we need cloud solutions and which are the best for our business?
Simply by giving answers to several questions, we can nd out whether the certain cloud computing service is good for us.
The rst thing that needs to be cleared out, so to speak, is the confusion around the whole professional IT term. To many people, it is really a blurry image which needs to
be given an apprehensible explanation. So, in this sense, it is not the computing part which seems to kind of distract the people, but the “cloud” thing. What is it? Why is it
called that way? Another thing that is still unclear is the line between the costumer-server systems and the cloud or the grid computing and the cloud and so and so forth.
We use cloud computing services when the IT ones are not identied with the nal parametres, nor are identied as a server, disc system and the like.
What else we should lay some emphasis on is the net applications, virtual hosting, SaaS systems, etc. On the contrary, when we do use an internal server with such
applications which are installed internally, what we have is a conventional costumer-server architecture. And yet, that doesn’t mean that we cannot have internal cloud
technologies aka Private Cloud. In this case the cloud computing technologies are used within the business based on the very same principles.
Is the cloud good for us and how does it work?
It is absolutely normal to be asking about that or wondering whether they are a good choice for the small businesses. In this regard, you may even ask if they are the right
option for your needs or if we should replace the old traditional internally built systems with the new cloud option – the answer to all of these signicant questions cannot
just be simple and there is a reason for it. First of all, the cloud constitutes quite a wide concept, which, in some cases, may turn out to be a very good option for some
people, but quite an ineffective for others. So it gets clear that even it is about a business system that is of high range, we cannot just look for one solution. One of the
most reliable and famous CRM services throughout the whole world, namely salesforce.com, has started as just a web application which was very similar to the softwareas-a-service aka SaaS model. And this certainly proves the applicability of CRM technologies in the business industry. With the technology development, including the
methodologies, under which ERP decisions are made, the chance is that many opportunities might be opened especially for the small business. However, it is just a
tendency that is still in a very early phase.
Apat from that, what else is also of great importance is the type of cloud solution itself and whether it provides enough reliability and security regarding any personal
information. Practically, today each company would face some serious problems as well as risks if somehow there happens to be an information leak. When it is stored
somewhere in the cloud, it can really get on the businessmen’s nerves. In this sense, you see that the reliability and the safety of any personal information is surely not
something to close your eyes to. In fact, even the smallest companies tend to make investments in Massive Raid, which is far way safer and dependable in terms of
securing data as well as system maintenance. In this respect, not knowing where the data is stored hides some risks as a whole.

In order to help the IT organizations make better, more informed decisions and provide optimized productivity considering their cloud applications, Intel Corporation is
cooperating with somewhere about 16 of the leading cloud providers all over the world. The main purpose of this collaboration is to introduce the so-called program “Intel
Cloud Technology”. The rst of its kind initiative will help users see, like, its real face. That way, they will develop quite wide knowledge of this particular sphere, which will
help them make the right decisions before purchasing any services. The tendency is that by the end of 2016, the incomes of the IaaS infrastructure will be drastically
What is even expected is that they will rise by up to 41 % on an annual base. With that more and more companies are considering outsourcing of their IT services and
technology, supporting the cloud-based services and applications.
As for the cloud technology by Intel, what should be taken into account is that the program itself is based on the collaboration between AWS and Intel, and the necessity to
inform their costumers about the specications, productivity, quality, security of their services, which are used in the AWS installations, as well as the benets they will
derive from all of that in the end.
The users of such services want to know the type of technologies in which their applications work on, simply because they affect directly their businesses.
If you just think about it, even the tiniest change in the productivity of the cloud might affect the sales which the e-commerce web sites make. Shopzilla, for example, has
increased its incomes by 12 % only by speeding up website load times.
CSPs is going to promote the benets of those Intel cloud technologies, supporting its services through many channels. Its main goal is to drastically improve the
productivity of the applications plus the security levels so that make sure that any personal data will be absolutely secured.
Thinking about the types of cloud providers, we are going to focus on only the three of them, namely SaaS, PaaS and IaaS.
What is the difference between the three of them?
The rst one in this group is the SaaS or also known as software-as-a-service – it includes, for instance, Google Docs or Salesforce, which constitute such secloud
desktoprvices that are basically designed for the End Users.
The platform-as-a-service providers or abbreviated as PaaS, is, for instance, Windows Azure. These type of providers offer either Windows or Linux operating system which
means that your business may take advantage of much more resources for development and use less for conguration and operating system maintenance. The downside
here is that your IT personnel will have less control over the main one.
Abbreviated as IaaS, this type of providers (infrastructure-as-a-service) offer better control over the main operating system but don’t provide automatic operating system
updates. A typical example of such providers are the Amazon EC2 as well as the Rackspace, which are actually very similar to the PaaS type.
Hosting is the storage of a certain type of information which is in the form of text, audio or video les, pictures or banners. All that information is seen by the users of every
web site in the Internet and is stored and saved on a server. The web hosting could be divided in two groups – shared hosting and cloud hosting.
The shared hosting offers the opportunity of a private blog. It is perfect for people who want to create a little website where they could write about football, tennis or
something that excites them and is their passion. It is also one of the cheapest and most popular hosting among the Internet world.
But if someone has its own business or some kind of activity where a service is bought or sold cloud hosting is the type that should be used. There are a lot of options to
do that with examples like you can trust a big company or not so big one but with the needed experience and important clients.
The Cloud hosting operates with its own operating system which operates with the installed and uploaded programs and applications by the users. The users have full
access to the operating system and they could install lots of and different software products that can cooperate with the operating system. The cloud servers offer easy to
install and congure software. The resources of the machine for cloud hosting like a hard disk, RAM are limited and they are shared in the cluster and every of them has
limited access. Despite that cloud hosting is used by almost all small companies in the world. In the cloud server one cloud is created by a couple of independent servers.
On every server it could be installed a separate operating system depending on the needs of the users which contains all active applications of a certain user. The settings
of the server are maximally optimized for the concrete application and the resources that it can use. It is recommended for the web sites and applications that use optimal
settings of the operating system and generate huge server loading.
The main characteristics of the cloud hosting technologies are ve – huge amount of resource that is available for every registered user from every point of the world at any
time; virtualization that at a high degree uses the hardware; elasticity that gives the opportunity for a dynamic conguration of the costs and passing from high capital
expenses to opeCloud Hostingrative ones; automation that gives an opportunity to install, congure and deliver application only through the Internet without the help of the
users; measure of consummation – the users pays that much resource that he used.
The saving of huge amount of the resource is so important for the users. With it every user that owns a credit card for example could have the access to a huge pile of
resource and pay only for that resource that he used. That is one of the biggest advantages of the cloud hosting and it is shown in the management of the resources.
The virtualization of the resources is one of the most important technologies that allow the usage of the whole hardware and it is so important for the cloud structure.
The elasticity in increasing and decreasing usage is a key concept and generally it shows how much resource was consumed and how much was actually needed.
The automation of the resources is the ability for automatic creating and deleting of virtual machines. The installed applications on the cloud may need to use new
additional resources and they could be activated in a few minutes.
The paying only for the usage (also called pay per use) is the way you pay for the hosting. With this characterization the cloud hosting establishes a new way of paying.
Cloud computing is a kind of computer services. This term is one piece of the Information Technology. It refers the using of shared resources, software and information like
a provision of computer systems and other kinds of devices using a web (like Internet). The term includes software as a service called SaaS, infrastructure as service called
IaaS, platform as service called PaaS and other modern technologies which in the form of an online business applications that are ndable through web browsers perform
computing needs while save the software and the user data in own servers. So we can say that this is connected to software applications provided in the shape of web
services but also the admission to the hardware and system resources of data centers which offer these services. Actually the combination between the admission of the
hardware and software in the data services is what is called a “cloud”. Some consider and state that it is another word used for the Internet because it is often described in
similar way in diagrams of computer webs.
In 1997 the NetCentric Company tries to make the trademark “cloud computing” but later in 1999 the company abandons the idea. In 2001 in an article of the New York
Times the phrase is mentioned by the software engineer David Weiner and it is used in the same way as nowdays. Ocially the term is established by Eric Schmidt in 2006.
That happened on a conference that was about the search machines.
There isn’t an accurate denition of the concept and that leads to different understandings of the technology of cloud computing. Different sources extract different types
of characteristics of the so called “cloud”.
One source points out ve major characteristics – on demand self service; nationwide web access which means an admission to the service from all over the world through
all standard and modern devices with a connection to the Internet; the resources used for storage and treatment of all user’s data is equally spread in one general
infrastructure; variable searching through which users could change the capacity of the searched service; pay per use where the payment of services is dened by the
consummation of used calculating power or a computer memory.
Other source decreases these characteristics to only three – the cloud computing creates the illusion of endless calculating resources that are available on request which
actually eliminates the need to make long-term plans for the delivery of this kind of resources; companies have the chance to start with an order of not much software and
hardware resources and then to increase the orders when their needs get bigger; the cloud computing give the opportunity only the consumed and computed resources to
be paid for short period of time while being used.
Other different sources suggest other characteristics of the cloud computing.
There are four pieces of the “cloud”:
A private cloud – the infrastructure of that cloud is taken by only one organization and it is used only by it.
A public cloud – the infrastructure of that cloud is used by one organization and the “cloud” is sold to the wider audience.
A community cloud – the infrastructure of this cloud is shared by several separate organizations and it serves as supporting a specic community of users which share
common views and ideas
A hybrid cloud – the infrastructure of that cloud is mixed into two or more clouds which maintain single although they are really connected through standardized
The term “cloud computing” has conicting acceptance. There are some people that criticize it and call it “a trap for users” or “a marketing trick that aims the users”. Of
course there are many supporters that think that this is the technology of the near and far future.
When working on a serious project we should have a full access to our les no matter where we are at the current moment. We also need to back up our family photos, work
projects, articles, ebooks, musical albums or movies. So in order to be able to do that, we need an archival disk. We can also archive all the important information of ours
on an external hard drive but it cannot offers the accessibility that we want and need. If we really want to be able to get access to anything that is of great signicance to us
whatever location or time, we can easily go for those super useful, effective and pretty easy for usage cloud services. They have much more assets that you have probably
ever thought. They can be described as virtual hard disks which provide various functionalities. We can easily store any sort of important les of ours on them any time we
want. Here is a simple but very useful rundown on the best cloud storages platforms which have become the most preferrred ones by both businessmen and average users.
Types of cloud storage platforms:
Have you ever used the service by Google? The Google Drive is actually an excellent service which becomes active right after you create an Gmail account. If you have one,
then you already have about 15 GB free storage which you can use for your les. You can even arrange them in folders, upload and open most of the le formats without
having to download them on your personal computer. The service itself allows you to increase this free storage but before doing that you should know that this service is
not free of charge. What esle you can do is change the permissions to various les by means of which you will be able to send special generized links to your collegues,
friends,etc.. By doing this step, you will grant them access to the les you share or send.
Have you ever heard of BitCasa?
Throughout the years, this company has evolved into a very prosperous one, which is today among the rst companies to ever provide the users with a very securCloud
Computinge cloud disk, featuring up to 20 GB, plus many other paid services such as “unlimited disk” which, however, is also not free of charge. In terms of security, the
company is amongst the best ones, which “has no idea” about what kind of les are stored on it.
Tencent is another very good option which you can take advantage of. It is a Chinese company, providing up to 10 TB free storage. What you should actually do rst is visit
the website and sign up for it in order to be able to use the chat-service. However, it has few disadvantages considering the steps you need to take so as to get to use it.
And to top off our quite short but very useful list consisting of only great cloud storage options, we will mention a few words about the Copy service. It is a very secure one,
which encrypts your les and offers free storage of 15 GB. Besides, this platform boasts many applications which might be useful for you.
Most of the students after their graduation are in the dilemma in of which university would be the best for them. The hardest decision for them is to nish the university
abroad or in their country. After each student nishes the high school or any other college private or public institutions the students have the right to study abroad or in
their country in the subject they choose to study for .
By nishing the university and getting the diploma from the university you studied each student can apply for the protection of the degree they studied for, and so they have
the right to work in different institutions, also there are different types of institutions who can offer also the scholarship and the work in the same time .
What is required to continue the studies abroad is, a diploma of the school the students have nished or studied for, depending on the program sometimes it requires also a
test to the university you are applying for .
The degrees which require a test are, psychology, medicine school, veterinary , stomatology where the number of the students which are accepted to study is limited.
Meanwhile in Austria students from the EU actually don’t pay the study fee .
Also for the parents of the students is a hard time to decide where to send their kids for studying, what they want is the best for them, and so the have a hard time to decide
which in most of the cases from the nancial view makes them to take these decisions. The rst choice is to send their kids in a private school and pays the complete fee
in the beginning of the school year, or the second choice is to send their kids in a public school and to pay for the private courses and lexions out of the school in a private
teacher during the school year .
In different universities around the world the highest priority is to prepare their students in the best way for the profession they are studying for and what they are going to
work in their future. Most of the universities architecture and construction is made so the students to feel better in the buildings, without any complexes and to be focused
all the time on their studies. Discipline is another priority which is respected as from the students and also from the teachers and professors .
Besides universities are also offered different levels of studying as, preschool level, primary school, high school, professional schools. Preschool starts from the age 6 and
lasts for 4 years and then the kids pass to primary school which last’s for other 5 years
In the moment that high school nishes for any student the hardest decision they have to make is ” What about now, where will i continue my studies ? ” . And today we are
talking about this really important subject which affects in all the students, which are the terms and conditions we need to fulll .
For each student who wants to continue the studies abroad needs to be sure that to have a secured place in the desired university. Even so for the studies for a single
semester or for a full year studying the free places for the students are limited and the concurrence is really big and dicult. Is very important for each student to fulll the
requirements before the places are free. Based on this should be lled different terms for the acceptance and different terms for being chosen, different terms and different
specic documents .
The rst and the most important term is that for the student to pre-register online in the ocial site of the university you chose to study or to contact with the oce
secretary and to get informed properly to be informed exactly with the conditions each student needs to fulll and which are conditions for the foreign students, every
student should be careful with the document you need to complete necessary for the registration in the university’s. Here you will nd what’s more important and what each
student should know before proceeding on choosing their direction and university .
The free right choices may be selected to be studied by the students without the need of any great average based on your skills on school, also therefore is necessary in
these directions to apply and to be registered because of formalities that need to be proceeded. is also possible to be changed and the average note requirement and this
depend’s from the competition and the number of the student who apply on these degrees, the average note of each student is possible to be higher or lower this depends if
you have more experience on practice or no .
If you have a good opportunity to be registered in the right direction then apply to the university you want to be and the degree you want to study for. Here you should
consider to fulll all the formula’s that are required from the university and the copies of the school you have studied for until now .
For the international students is required also the language of the state you are applying to study for, a permit you are allowed to stay and to study in that country, these
informations or similar you can nd them in the websites of the universities you are going to apply. The application is easy made through a online formulary which needs to
be lled properly. This might bring you something unclear for you, because different universities have different procedures to ll before to register
As a lot of other countries even USA offers too many shcolarship’s in it’s country. But to be able to prot from these scholarship’s are required different conditions. For the
students who come from other countries to study in USA the university fee is too high for them to pay so is available also for these students to apply for a scholarship, full
or partly .
The process is really hard and is getting day after day harder, the education cost in USA is actually really high and the tendency for the people to study is getting even
higher, but if you have something special and a lot of energy you own the biggest chances to get an American diploma university .
For those who don’t nd themselves in these programs, or can’t abandon the dream they have for a diploma university in America, if there is hard will everything will be done
as they want to happen. There is consultant rm who helps students to make the right decisions on their life for what to study for with success .
The biggest process of the American universities is that when a student which has applied gets accepted the only thing the student needs to do is to contact with the staff
of the university and they do all rest, till to registration with success of the student .
Besides all of the prots a student has in the American universities is that the universities have their own website pages so is easier for the students to apply and to know
the requirements all of them online .
American universities has a network of schools with over than 300 infocenters where are included over than 170 different places in world, where the young students can
apply to study in the American universities. For the young European students are offered also summer schools those are included so the students will be get known with
the American culture and different practice
Professional colleges are a good opportunity for all the students all around the world. Different schools in different states have different learning programs, different
discipline methods of practice, professional colleges are more popular in rich countries also the conditions in schools is better.
These schools give the opportunity to the students to chose a right direction for their life for each student who studies in these schools, because this is their purpose, to
make the new generation capable for the profession they are going to chose .
The students have the right to chose what they want to study for, so the nal exams give them the best opportunity to chose the subject they want to be tested so they can
be selected to study for that subject or degree .
Different professional schools have different learning techniques, in most of the professional schools the practice is made in the workshops or laboratory’s of the school
which can offer to the students. Which means the best students may assure a working place in the future while they are studying also .
This last years the requests of the professional schools are taking a lot of attention, because the parents want their children to be in the work market as soon as possible,
the degrees which are going to be added to the professional schools are going to be agriculture and economic professional. Professional schools are the best choice to
make from the students who are not really good at social science or literature etc .
Professional schools give opportunity to the most of the students to be ready for the work market faster than any other school system, saving them time and money. The
most preferred degrees in the professional schools are still the subjects of mechanic and mostly electronic, economy , these are the degrees who have the most higher
number of requests and with the lower number is agriculture, farming , construction these is because these are considered as harder to work in these professions
Low quality of the teaching in the university is reected also at the students with low rendiment on the degrees. One example is with students who study for justice, mostly
of them can’t even make an formal act of each subject, most of them can’t make a handwriting paper, saying this in other words these students don’t know how to write
properly on handwriting .
All of the examples we showed earlier are a product of a bad teaching, but what if these peoples get the right to work in the leadership position? So are these the people
who can’t let the society go further and to develop, these are the people who are taking a few steps back our society. Nowadays if you want to have a leadership position is
necessary only to have a friend or a family member with power to place you in the job you desire to work. So what about the one who got the diploma with hard work and a
lot of studies what is left for them? These are the ones we see unemployed around looking for a different job not the one he studied for .
To change this situation which its roots are from the bad education in schools and universities, its necessary also for our teachers and professors to be qualied and the
method of controlling their knowledge needs to be tested time after time, these method puts the barrier against to the low quality of education and chooses wisely and
selects the ones who really should be accepted in university and who should teach the students. The best form to chose the teachers in schools and universities is with the
credits to make a test and the ones who really pass and fulll terms and conditions will be able to learn the students, this also gives a big help to chose the right ones and
effects at the ones who work without any right at these positions .
Those procedures sent that in universities to be to different methods of choosing the teachers, the rst method is by competition hiring and as the public knows hiring with
commands, directly with the command from the one who hires the employers. Other factors are that in two last decades the hiring the new professors and teachers is
mostly used the family relation, corruption , political view.
And in these cases we have a total failure in teaching and learning the new generation, because an incapable professor makes an entire generation incapable to learn right.
Most important for our society to move forward is that we need to make the right choices of the ones who are going to learn the next generation, they should be qualied to
know how to raise an generation with culture and discipline .
We have professors in our universities that don’t own even a diploma for the work they are doing. Undoubtedly that in these cases which are not rare, quality of the teaching
and learning would be low obviously. This is as a result of a lot of sins, which start from manipulated hiring, not with the documents because this is a job well done not to
be discovered by their friends as is in base of their prots
