Addressing Ultrabook storage in the cloud
One aspect of the Ultrabook™ computer that many of the technology’s supporters are unlikely to highlight is the device's limited on-board storage compared to traditional PCs. This is a necessity given the form factor's slight frame, but fortunately, it is one challenge that is easily overcome.
"Cloud computing" is a buzzword heard all around the tech industry in recent years. The technology enables users to access a range of IT solutions through the internet rather than on-premise systems. This includes software, email, image hosting and storage.
Cloud services are perhaps the most convenient solution to the Ultrabook's lack of storage. Rather than store files on the computer, users can simply upload their documents, music, videos and pictures to a web-based digital locker and access them from virtually any device.
There is no limit to the cloud's storage. If you need more or less space, it is generally a simple process of scaling up or down in the cloud as necessary.
The Ultrabook seems poised to be the next big thing in the PC market, but like all new devices, it is not without its question marks. Users who are concerned about the Ultrabook's lack of storage should be reassured that a solution is not hard to find.
