IT Know-How #14: Cloud Services

12 Sep 2012

Tips to help you get the most out of IT Services.

Cloud services are online IT services that you can access wherever you are and from a variety of devices. They usually consist of an online application, provided by a cloud server, and a remote data storage facility. Because these services are remote, i.e. hosted by an external provider and not by the University network or stored on your computer’s hard drive, they are referred to as being ‘ in the cloud’. However, there are risks associated with these options and you should never save sensitive or personal data to them.
