I’m a big fan of the cloud. I think it has made lives easier for all of us, but I also believe that we still have some work to do to make the cloud a viable replacement for our traditional paper documents.
In the midst of all this, it’s worth noting the Cloud-to-Cloud (C2C) paradigm has recently caught the attention of the tech world due to the fact that the two sides of the cloud are becoming more and more connected. This trend is called “C2C migration” and it allows one party to control the resources in one place and the other to control resources in another location. It’s like a virtual-reality-style virtual-office system.
In other words, companies like Amazon and Google are taking advantage of this technology to increase the amount of control that one party has over resources that are in one place, and then allow that other party to have the resources in another place. Google, like most tech companies, is using the C2C migration for internal purposes. However, it is interesting that Amazon (the largest online retailer in the world) is also using the technology to boost its business with the rest of the world.
Amazon has been doing just that for some time and the fact that Google (and other internet giants) are taking advantage of it are both good and bad. On the good side, it means that Amazon can outsource more of the things that it does – it’s more cost-effective than other vendors. On the bad side, it also means that the tech giant is using its power to build a more powerful competitor for itself and other companies.
It’s no surprise why Amazon is using some of the same tech that Microsoft is using to get its own web browser. The Internet giant is now the standard for web browsing and so it’s hard to imagine that Google is going to offer anything other than a way to search the web in a more convenient and better way. However, Amazon, on the other hand, is building its own web browser that is much more feature-rich than Google’s.
So, if you’re interested in a cheaper web browser and a more feature-rich one, Amazon might actually be the way to go.
Amazon is building its own web browser, but it’s being developed in house using a cloud computing system that Google isn’t exactly on board with. Amazon has reportedly asked Google to support some of the features they want to build into the new web browser, but Google is only willing to give it so much support that it can keep it a secret from its own users.
Theres been a lot of debate about this since the browser was first announced. I think for now, unless Google can prove that their new browser is not a security threat, Amazon has the upper-hand in this one. If the browser makes it into Amazon’s hands, it would be a huge victory for the company.
As far as the browser is concerned, it’s a secret. They want it to be, but they can’t just say they want to get it into the hands of one user. The browser is just a tool that lets you surf the web.
This is why acer cloud technology has been a controversial topic. Some think it may be a security threat to the user. Others are concerned that the company is taking the same approach that Microsoft took with Java. Some have even suggested it has to do with the fact that the browser developers have made a conscious decision to try and hide this technology from users.
