There is a lack of trust in the traditional cloud, says Peacock. The current cloud storage model is a "temporary situation", agrees Richard Mortier at the University of Nottingham, UK, who is designing next-generation personal clouds. He wants to let people control their data so they can choose whether or not to opt into a relationship with a company like Google, which makes money from user data. "At the moment it's too asymmetrical," he says.

While early examples of personal web services exist, they have been hard to manage for non-specialists. Space Monkey should make personal clouds more accessible for the average user.

"Even if you know what you're doing it's a pain," says Mortier. A system like Space Monkey that works out of the box is a big help. "But you're going to be hosting other people's data," he says. Your stuff could also be distributed across international legal jurisdictions. "The liabilities are unclear," he says.


I know too little. Does any of you get it well enough to explain
what are the pro et cons of it?

Okay better than trusting Google or Microsoft?
But why trust SaceMonkey or total strangers
having bits of my files on their computers?
why would that be safer?

Faster some 12 times?????

pace Monkey claims that its cloud will give users upload and download speeds that are 12 times as fast as those offered by existing services – and as the network of subscribers grows the rate could be 60 times faster. "Each new user adds bandwidth," says co-founder Alen Peacock.

interesting to read but I am too dull and not bright enough.
Give me some light or insight please Smile
