MaidSafe Perpetual Data peer-to-peer cloud storage app vs Google Docs
Perpetual Data is a peer-to-peer application that allows you to use an arbitrary computer as your own, with access to your personal and public data for the duration of your login. When you log out of the application, access to you data disappears from that PC.
Since it’s all shared peer-to-peer data, it’s safe and secure within the cloud. Now you don’t have to worry about a PC being stolen or a hard drive going sour on you.
Just understand that your data is safe and secure as long as no one can break your encryption, for which there is no real 100% guarantee. I do worry about this technology being used in China where their own government may snoop on a user’s so-called private data.
MaidSafe’s Perpetual Data may be coming to the table a little too late! (Or maybe google bought them?) I just opened my google docs and what do I find? -> New! Upload anything. Now you can upload all your files without converting them to Google Docs.
But there’s a huge difference! Google might be storing your data “in the cloud” but they’re still in control of that data. The Perpetual Data architecture puts your data everywhere, yet no where. It’s the central control on the Google side that’s the problem.
