未来在icloud的
Francesco Schiavon on Tue, September 6th | 5 comments
'The Cloud' has become this years buzz word that everyone wants to write about it. With Apple's iCloud coming soon, Francesco Shiavon explains what it is and why it'll revolutionize everything we do.

我一直使用的是Mac OS X的狮子几天在家的服务器管理多台电脑,帐户,日历,联系人,文件共享,虚拟专用网,和Time Machine备份。此外,我也一直在使用一段时间我的主要的Mac一个的CalDAV和CardDAV服务器。自身的这不是很有趣的或戏剧性的,但它确实提供苹果与icloud的方向指示。


在空气中

我认为的icloud将改变我们使用电脑在一个相当深刻的方式,和最有趣的是,我也相信,我们甚至不会注意到。

我这样说是因为icloud的,根据,苹果已经公开的信息,将幕后的管理数据和文件的自动的。好吧,如果你已经使用了一个CardDAV和CalDAV服务器你已经有了一个味道,这意味着什么。很简单:你让一个条目,说一个日历事件,一台设备上,而你在医生的办公室的后续任命的时候,说你的iPhone。如果该设备是连接到CalDAV服务器,它会自动把数据到服务器。接下来的时间,另一台设备连接到服务器,说你的iPad,服务器更新该设备上的日历,让你的下一个医生的委任会自动显示,在空气中,没有任何其他的同步需要。

There really is no believable excuse for missing an appointment again

真的是没有可信的借口再次失踪预约!


icloud的行为将类似的附加功能,只要其他设备连接到互联网,icloud的推数据,在这一点上的其他设备。 CalDAV服务器的区别是,日历软件是一个连接,以获取最新的日历数据,icloud的推动没有提出请求的日历软件的变化而。


开创性的?

那么,为什么这件事情如此突破性的?事实上,它不是,但它是一个巨大的前进,的“云计算”。

在大多数情况下,我们认为我们所有有价值的数据范围从日历信息是超级敏感的商业文件,因为这些设备包含电脑。要访问这些数据,我们需要进入到我​​们的计算机,对不对?

现在,这个想法到了极致,从任何地方访问您的所有数据,即使你没有你的计算机。当你看到这里,我们并不需要一台个人电脑了。

Syncing contacts across the cloud will probably become even easier than doing so across local networked machines

横跨云同步通讯录可能会成为甚至比在当地联网的计算机这样做更容易。


避免冲突

这与我在本文开头提到的狮子服务器如何?

有同样的逻辑背后的icloud。 icloud的美容,类似的CalDAV服务器,它管理的幕后有任何冲突。什么是冲突?我来回答另一个问题。如果您要创建CalDAV服务器没有连接到一台设备上的事件会发生什么事情,后来又一设备上的事件,确实有连接到服务器?那么,服务器的数字出来,并确保数据保持一致,不同的设备一旦连接到服务器。我给你举个例子。说你有,医生的任命在您的日历,你在没有连接CalDAV服务器的远程位置。这时你需要做一个医生的委任的变化,因为你没有可用的那一天,所以你对你的iPhone(记住,它没有连接到服务器)的变化。一旦你自己的本地网络,在相同的日历,你去,并添加另一个事件无关医生的委任。现在,当

iCal in the iCloud


保守秘密,保证它的安全

所以,icloud的会以类似的方式工作,但不是唯一的日历或联系人,但对于任何应用程序开发,已建成icloud的支持。的icloud将奶源任何冲突,保持数据的安全,并自动保存和舞狮的版本一样的技术,你的工作将是没有“您的主计算机”访问。 icloud的内运作是非常公开的,在这个阶段,但苹果已经表示该数据将是安全的,只有访问创建它的应用,再加上一堆的加密和密钥将被添加到进程,以确保您的数据和文件安全。

Keeping documents secure is of prime importance if cloud computing is to succeed

如果云计算是成功保持文件的安全是最重要的。


这意味着这个概念,我们目前的“个人电脑”是变形速度比大多数人意识到什么。

我非常期待到icloud的,特别是软件开发人员一旦开始释放他们的软件版本为icloud的支持。我也拿出一些菜刀密码,并改变它offen,因为如果有人得到我的Apple ID举行,他们不仅获得我的iTunes Store帐户,但我的私人文件,一旦他们在icloud的。

注:“云计算”,并在一定程度上“icloud的”工程师和教师,试图代表作为云互联网时,他们做了一个连接到互联网的设备图。 这是因为网络本身没有形状,我们真的不需要数据如何通过Internet从源头到它的目的地的详细信息。因此,设备的复杂连接,又名互联网,是最常见的代表云如果使用了这些学者喜欢在他们的图表,而不是一个“黑盒子”的东西,它会被称为“黑匣子计算”或者“iBlackBox !“

    As I am not one of those people who need (or want) to be connected (or synchronized) via multiple gadgets, I doubt I will be off into the iCloud any time soon. When I am away from my computer, I am quite happy to be so. As for backing up data, I'll continue to make hard copy backups, and use Time Machine. Having all of my data on some other server seems to me to have the potential for serious abuse as far as privacy is concerned. Nope, not for me.

    Well-written article from an author who I respect, as I've learned a lot from watching several of his videos. However, when it comes to this iCloud thing I don't agree with most of his premises. The notion of putting the internet between one's files and one's computer is a giant step backwards in the evolution of computing. Nothing is faster, more convenient, or reliable as storing data on a hard drive connected directly to your computer. Sure, having a copy of important data stored on an FTP server or other remote server (which iCloud is not all that far removed from) is a great idea. But it's folly to think that data stored on a 3rd party server should be anyone's first choice for data storage. Let's just look at data transfer speed of the internet vs. a directly-connected hard drive: At the present time, at least in the US, upload speeds are anywhere from 1/10 to 1/5 that of download speeds, making this system impractical for storing (i.e., uploading to the remote server -- iCloud) any kind of heavy-weight project files from apps like Logic, Photoshop, to name two. Compared to the speed of saving data to a hard drive, the concept of primary data storage in the cloud starts to seem just a bit silly. The concept of a personal computer "morphing" into something else is not, as Francesco seems to suggest, a self-fulfilling prophecy. If someone wants this to occur they can make it so by way of subscribing to the model which he described. Otherwise, the concept can be entirely ignored without -- as I foresee it -- any downside whatsoever.

    This whole cloud computing business goes way above and beyond what FTP does. Yes, at the most basic level, there is a remote file server that requires the right credentials. But that's where the similarities between iCloud and FTP. In fact, bandwidth is not a problem at all since the files would be local on the device using them. The magic comes from the transparency that you don't have to do anything to move and update your files on other devices. As for security, only the apps that create the documents or that you give permission, can access the files on the cloud. So the security problem may not be someone else accessing your account, but rather loosing your iPhone and having no passcode on it. I believe that for certain kinds of data, like calendars, contacts and other non-sensitive documents, one can start using the service and see how it works. I'm sure I'll move more of my files to iCloud once I clearly understands how it works. Thanks for your comments. Keep them coming.

    Hi Am I missing something or did u not really respond to Sky's question. Little bitty files, ok we see that. I already store scripts and other text material on an online server where others can access them. But say you take off with ur laptop to Some Other Place, You shoot some footage and add it in to your Final Cut Project. A week later you get home, fire up your desktop machine and there is your Final Cut Project updated... But wait a minute. You shot 1.2 gig of footage. Surely quicker and easier to ethernet or firewire or whatever it across from your laptop. Or is this not what iCloud is for? I'm fascinated but confused and like the others here don't see the point for most of what I do.

    One of the problems with iCloud and "cloud computing" in general, is that it's so simplistic and at the same time complex, that many people are having a hard time understanding its value. That's one of the arguments I make in my article. It will change the fundamental way we use computers and we won't even notice. Let me see if I can give you an example: web based email. In "the old days" all of us had email programs that were hosted on one computer. In those days we didn't need to check our email every 5 minutes on the road. Webmail comes around, like Gmail, and then you're not locked to a single computer. In fact you don't even own the software. "It's in the cloud". That's kind of the idea with iCloud. You can create a document in one computer and instantly gets pushed to all your devices that share the same iCloud account. Have you ever wanted to have synched a document to your phone so you could work with it on the go, but it's "locked up" in your computer in your office or at home? None of that for data created with applications that have support for iCloud. Even if you don't have your mobile device with you, you could go and download it from another computer by going to the iCloud site; giving you access to your work almost wherever you are. Mixta, applications have to be written to push the data over to iCloud's servers. This means that Final Cut Pro X would not synch your media, at least on the current version. Take a look at Apple's page: http://www.apple.com/icloud/features/documents.html Numbers, Pages, Keynote and iPhoto, they all synch across Macs and iOS devices. As more developers add iCloud support to their applications, their files will be synched to iCloud automagically. As you say, it's great for smaller files and things like photos, but larger media files you'd be safer backing them up using Time Machine.
