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
Cloud Storage Benefits:
The pay-per-use model of cloud storage services brings significant savings for a
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.

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.
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.
ADVANTAGE OF YOUTUBE:
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."
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
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.
