The cost advantage in storing your data on a cloud securely is a definite plus for going for Cloud services. It reduces the burden of maintaining, backups,disaster recovery and protecting your data and this is done very reliably using the state of art techniques by your CSP, which you as an individual company may not be in a position to do monetarily and management wise.

You bring up a good point. Are cloud users aware of their DATA value? Some people do not understand how data can be used by others. The issues of data mining are all about finding a special key indicator that yeilds information that can be exploited. If you do not understand that all of your data may have value to others beyond yourself, then you may not place sufficient security safeguards on the data. It is equivalent to putting all of your passwords in a plain text document so you can find them easier. So can someone else.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
