Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with SkyDrive, part of Cloud Computing First Look (2012).
Let's take a quick look now at Microsoft SkyDrive which falls under the category of cloud storage. …It's a file hosting service that allows users to upload and sync files and then access them …from a web browser or even a mobile device. …Now it is part of the Windows Live group of online services and it allows you to keep …your files private, you can share them with contacts, you can pick and choose who's allowed …to see those files or make the files available to the public, and in that case, everyone will …automatically have access to them. Also with publicly shared files, you don't require someone …to have a Microsoft Windows Live ID to access them.…
Now SkyDrive does offer 7 gigabytes of storage for free to new users and additional storage …is available for purchase through a variety of membership plans. Files up to 300 megabytes …can be uploaded just using drag and drop right into a folder in your web browser, or you can …upload up to 2 gigabyte files via the SkyDrive Desktop Application if you choose to install …
David also presents an overview of migration and common cloud technologies as you contemplate a move to the cloud, including Google Apps, Microsoft Windows Live, and more. The final chapter outlines how to evaluate the ongoing effectiveness of the cloud for your business.
