How Cloud Technology Changed the Things We Do Daily

Since the beginning of time, people have been able to communicate with each other. Written words, spoken and musical voices, computer files, and many other ways to deliver ideas and feelings have served us well. However, communication has never been frictionless. Information overload is a significant problem that affects us in our daily lives in various ways.

That is why Blocksi provides businesses with accurate, real-time, customized cloud content filtering and access management for cloud applications. Blocksi’s machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies ensure high-security, high accuracy, fast deployment, and low cost.

Benefits of having a cloud-based service include the following:

  • Data loss prevention
  • Data security
  • Scalability
  • Automatic software updates
  • Efficiency and cost reduction
  • Backup of data

Developers can easily test new ideas and design application architecture without the dependency on on-site hardware limitations or slow procurement processes.

Here are some of the many reasons why you should use Blocksi to maximize the output of these benefits.


FAST AND EFFICIENT CONTENT FILTERING DUE TO HIGH DEPLOYMENT SPEEDS

A cloud-based service allows for fast and efficient deployment of any new instances.

Developers can easily test new ideas and design application architecture without the dependency on on-site hardware limitations or slow procurement processes, meaning that the loading times on Blocksi sites and applications are super-quick. Cloud computing uses an integration method, meaning that any updates a developer may make are immediately applied in real time. It also makes use of continuous delivery, deploying small software changes quickly and regularly, making sure that Blocksi is always up to date.

SAVE MONEY BY USE OF CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE

By using cloud infrastructure, you don’t have to spend vast amounts of money on purchasing and maintaining equipment. You don’t have to invest in hardware, facilities, utilities, or building out a large data center to grow your business. And since downtime is rare in cloud systems, you don’t have to spend time and money on fixing potential downtime-related issues.

With cost reduction, schools can spend larger parts of their budget on more essential 

functions, not just on maintaining the cost of storage equipment.

DATA SECURITY AND DATA LOSS PREVENTION

One of the major concerns of every business, regardless of size and industry, is its data security. Cloud computing offers many advanced security features guaranteeing that data is securely stored and handled. Cloud storage providers implement baseline protections for their platforms and the data they process, such as authentication, access control, and encryption.

This ensures that any files the users of Blocksi may have stored on the system will remain safe and secure. Blocksi also offers access management giving only certain Admins control over who accesses what data. Blocksi Manager requires you to have a Google domain and to be a GSuite Super Admin user to register and access the Administrator Dashboard. 

SCALABILITY

Using the cloud is an excellent idea for any business because it enables enterprises to efficiently—and quickly—scale up/down their IT departments according to business demands. With automatic scaling in the cloud, computing power can scale up as high as needed to handle unexpected usage spikes.

Using cloud computing in Blocksi also allows hundreds of thousands of new users to join simultaneously and instantly without the risk of the system crashing or slowing down.

BACKUP OF IMPORTANT FILES AND DATA

As end-user data changes over time and needs to be tracked for regulations or compliance reasons, older software versions can be stored for later stages in case they might be needed for recovery or rollback.

In the event of a site crash or significant data loss, a backup of these important files is stored on the cloud; therefore, using Blocksi ensures that you have a reliable storage of files.

Suppose your application is deployed on multiple locations, and for some reason, one region goes down. In that case, the traffic can automatically failover to the working regions without any interruptions to the end users. In other cases where there is a major bug in the software release, a quick rollback can be initiated to restore a previously released, more stable version to minimize damage.
Cloud storage is simply storing data and files and performing backups to an external offsite location. The main benefit of this solution is that it ensures a company’s data is kept secure and readily available in case on-site data is lost or there is some form of an unexpected disaster.

FASTER AND BETTER NETWORK SPEEDS

Using cloud storage allows for faster and more secure connections.

The two key elements of network performance are high availability (near-perfect systems uptime) and low latency (processing a high volume of data with little or no delays for the user), both of which can often be improved by a move to the cloud. 

Low latency is supported by the fact that good cloud vendors often store data close to your user base. High availability is supported by 24/7 teams dedicated to th ecloud and only the cloud. ​

Blocksi Manager relies on a fully distributed database architecture in the cloud and does not rely on any proxy solution that tends to cause SSL certificate errors or slow response times.

VIRTUALLY INFINITE STORAGE CAPACITY

The cloud has essentially unlimited capacity to store any data type in various cloud data storage types. This allows for any amount of data stored on the cloud storage system to be accessible anytime and anywhere, granted you have the permissions and access. Plus, data is stored on a virtual server, not the employees’ actual devices, which saves physical and logical space and also reduces loading times. This is ultimately very beneficial for any Blocksi users, whether teacher, admin, parent, or student, the massive amounts of free storage on the cloud means you can store and save every single file without concern of safety or space limitations.


In conclusion: if you’re a student, small business owner, or individual, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have cloud-based storage with easily accessible files. Cloud computing is cheaper, more scalable, and more reliable than regular on-premises storage: most small businesses and individuals will not need a super computer, and they certainly won’t be able to expand their in-house storage space. Instead of putting all that money into a bloated workstation or redundant external hard drives full of files you rarely access, think about using the cloud for storage instead.
