  • 3 INTRODUCTION CLOUD STORAGE Cloud storage is a model of networked enterprise storage where data is stored not only in the user's computer, but in virtualized pools of storage which are generally hosted by third parties, too. Hosting companies operate large data centers, and people who require their data to be hosted buy or lease storage capacity from them. The data center operators, in the background, virtualize the resources according to the requirements of the customer and expose them as storage pools, which the customers can themselves use to store files or data objects. Physically, the resource may span across multiple servers. The safety of the files depends upon the hosting websites. Cloud storage services may be accessed through a web service application programming interface (API), a cloud storage gateway or through a Web-based user interface. Cloud Storage Benefits: The pay-per-use model of cloud storage services brings significant savings for a company. Easy to use and to manage storage solution. Offers increased flexibility and scalability in terms of capacity and performance. Improved data accessibility makes cloud storage attractive to businesses as the cloud enables authorized company personnel to obtain the data from anywhere simply by logging onto the server.

With the features that Just Cloud has to offer, gone are the days when you have to transfer data with the use of USB cables or USBs which may or may not be the cause of your laptop or computer being infected with a virus. Using the Just Cloud storage system allows you to not only upload your files to the cloud but also back up your files with the use of their desktop client. also prides itself in giving you a service that is easy to use and easy to navigate
  • 6 HOW IT WORKS? 1. Select The Files You Want to upload JustCloud will backup all of the files and folders that you choose. Once the initial backup is complete, JustCloud will automatically save any changes to your files or backup any new files added. You can set your backup schedule and JustCloud will run in the background, without you having to do anything. 2. Your Files Are Uploaded To The Cloud JustCloud automatically backs up your files to the Cloud at the same time every day. You can also run a backup whenever you choose if you have something you need protected urgently. All data transferred to the cloud is incredibly secure and is protected by a 256 bit SSL encryption. 3. Access Your Files From Anywhere, At Anytime JustCloud stores your files in its cloud.

  • 7 YouTube is an online public communications site. The site allows for registered users to upload and have available for the public their videos for viewing. Anyone who goes to the site can view the videos that are posted on this site. The videos are anything from beginner videos to more professional videos. You can put just about anything you want on the YouTube site. You can also watch just about anything on YouTube. There are some great videos out there on YouTube that are very interesting and entertaining and will never be seen anywhere else. YouTube was designed and then released in 2005 by three previous employees of the PayPal online payment service. Their names are Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. These three came up with and designed the plan to have many producers of private works be able to supply the public with their work. Google then picked up on the wave of all the public communications, and purchased the popular YouTube. The purchase price was 1.65 billion dollars.
  • 8 INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Log on to the YouTube site and find several categories that you can browse to watch videos. To start, sign up for a free account. An account can save your ratings and favorite videos. 2. Watch the promoted videos. Television network and movie studios often offer free peeks at their new shows and trailers on YouTube. To see the newest studio offerings, look under "Promoted Videos." 3. Create a playlist on YouTube. You can also use YouTube to create multiple playlists featuring your favorite site videos. 4. Upload your own videos to YouTube. Click the "Upload" link on the main page. Sign in with your login information and upload the file with a title and description. 5. Rate the videos on YouTube. To rate a video, simply click on the number of stars that you feel the video deserves. The videos with the best ratings appear under the category "Top Rated." 6. Check out the Test Tube area of YouTube. This section of the website is where YouTube tests out new features before they are officially launched on the site.
  • 9 ADVANTAGE OF YOUTUBE: Additional Content If you have used YouTube, you are likely familiar with how easily it is to watch video after video by clicking the recommended links beside each video. When you create a YouTube channel, viewers can see an entire list of everything you've uploaded, plus a list of the videos you've made "Favorites." Information Some businesses lend themselves well to providing a behind-the-scenes look at how they run. For example, if you run an automotive repair business, creating informative YouTube videos about common automotive problems and how you fix them will help viewers become knowledgeable about the subject. The process of taking a camera beyond where the customer can see also gives your business a degree of transparency and honesty. Connections A key element of any social networking website is the ability for its users to make connections, and YouTube is no different. If you allow viewers to post comments on your videos, you can provide answers and create a connection with them. A potential customer may find out about your business through YouTube and support your business solely because he found your videos informative.
