Learn how blade server systems and blade switches from BLADE Network Technologies are changing the data center.

www.lockergnome.com lockergnome.com Roberto asked, “Will personal servers be replaced by cloud networking?” Cloud services are becoming more reliable and affordable all the time, and the idea of keeping a personal server may seem less appealing and more of a hassle than it’s worth to some users. One area where personal servers do have an advantage is in terms of privacy and security. When you manage your own data from stem to stern, it’s easier to manage who has access and in what way they have access. Are personal servers going away? Not yet, but cloud computing solutions could very well be more appealing to the average consumer. These average consumers being the same people that probably don’t run a personal server at home, anyway. That’s my answer, what’s yours?

    Well, I do think that cloud storage will replace hardware storage. Because I see it this way, first we had the contact list, then the contacts on a sim-card and now we just have google cloud to save our contacts or iCloud as well. The difference is that they don’t just save our contacts, they save our music, videos, pics and docs… Everything… So if I can have these on a Cloud, why would I have a pendrive or something to save it, if it is already saved and secure, and it is privated.

    Home Cloud is the way to go…Terabytes of multimedia and other format data stored locally in your home, streaming to all your devices also with secure remote access, that’s the future I see.

    I would rather personal servers as i have control over the security of my own servers sitting in my own home, holding my DATA which some jerk off plug is USB and Steal my data, plus here In Australia our shitty ISP’s have Shitty Upload speeds so i dont want to wast my time uploading something to a server sitting in the other side of the world! The Logic of cloud based servers is flawed!!!

    I have a video folder on my laptop which is over 72GB, and I am constantly saving videos and editing. One question, how inefficient and time consuming it would be to save gigabytes worth of videos to a server on the other side of the world? Secondly, over a 5Mb speed? Thirdly, and a big third, I am already surpassing my ‘unlimited’ broadband. Will cloud computing help that?

    There are way too many flaws.

    Yup! Agreed Mr Harp! I think we still have time to go yet but if the main reason for not moving to the cloud is internet connection ~ well things can only get better there too! We have ways and means of making it secure!! Mwah ha ha*

    What is a Good home server? I’ve been looking at creating my own, because of a recent harddrive failure. I’ve considered a raid server. Let me know, I’d greatly appreciate your advise.

    DOO NOT WANT.. cloud.. i personally love my home sever and will never switch to cloud services to manage that data. it would scare me to have all my data in the clouds, which is available to anyone one potentially..

    @VaryGeek
    I’m just waiting for cloud gaming to fail completely because the major servers got hacked because someone pissed off the wrong group again and gave them enough personal reason to. (sony did that and paid for it severely)

    I personally run my own Xserve but it is very hard to maintain and upgrade, I think it is really just a personal hobby to have a personal server now (unless you want home folder sync).
