    13. 13. Pros of Consumer Cloud Computing:<br />-Accessibility across operating platforms:<br /> *iOS<br /> *Windows<br /> *Mac<br /> *Blackberry<br /> *Linux<br /> *Android<br />-Cost Effective<br /> *Only pay for what you use<br />-Simplicity<br /> *No need for upgrades because they’re handled by vendor<br /> *No need to purchase a lot of hardware<br />-Storage Redundancy<br /> *Content is saved (backed up) in multiple locations<br />-Scalability<br /> *Adaptability to increased and decreased demand<br />
    14. 14. Cons of Consumer Cloud Computing:<br />-Security<br /> *Placing Personal/Confidential Information online<br />-Reliability/Uptime<br /> *If the cloud or Internet is down, there may be no access to data<br />-Latency<br /> *Delay<br />-Discomfort<br /> *Many older executives are hesitant to commit to the cloud for their company because they do not understand or feel uncomfortable with the idea of cloud computing<br />
