What is Personal Hosted Cloud?
A personal hosted cloud is a consolidation of digital content and services, which are accessible across a wide range of devices. The personal cloud is not a tangible entity model of cloud computing. It is a platform which gives users the privilege to store, stream, synchronize, and share content on a relative core, moving from one platform to another. It is a form of cloud storage for home based users to store volume of data. This cloud architecture created on connected services and applications that work much like a private cloud, but with enhanced control.
Personal hosted cloud can also be termed as personal cloud storage, pocket cloud storage and mobile cloud storage. The term public cloud can be interpreted in two different instances: firstly, the personal cloud is a storage contraption that can be accessed remotely through internet connection. The second instance implies that it is any cloud computing service that is provisioned only for the home consumers. In the first instance, the user has the ability to control the hardware, while in the second; a 3rd party source controls the hardware.
