About me - Husband, father, geographer, traveller, photographer and all round nice guy :) I have love of the oddities, doors, windows, textures etc and am used to the strange looks I get when taking a photo of a wall, the grass, a road or a something I find interesting. Cloud computing is one of the buzzwords in the web design and computing industry that seems to have a very simple definition, but a myriad of uses. You can assume that since you are using a company as large as Google that all of your documents will be safe, plus you have reduced hard drive usage and are using less resources to create the document.
Today I want to talk about two cloud computing applications: Amazon Simple Storage Services (S3) and Amazon CloudFront. Now that you have a little background on cloud computing and the Amazon services we are going to be focusing on, what exactly are we using them for?
Now, we’ll stay in the AWS Console, but navigate to the CloudFront area by clicking “Services” in the top navigation. Now, all we have to do is click on the “Create Distribution” button, and from the two options select “Download”, as it will use the S3 bucket that we created previously. Now that we have our bucket created, we have to set up our WordPress site to communicate with S3 and start to upload all of our files. Once we have the plugin installed and activated, we are going to navigate to the General Settings within the plugin options.
Once we’ve set CloudFront as our CDN, we can now navigate to the CDN page within the plugin options. This will host all of your attachments, theme, and WordPress core files on S3 so almost your entire site will be served from Amazon S3. I chose to do the Host attachments last because personally, that was the longest process of getting all of my files uploaded to Amazon S3. Next, navigate over to the CDN tab, and make sure “Enable CDN Support” is checked, and then we will enter in our CloudFront URL. Unfortunately, the WP Super Cache plugin does not include a way to automatically upload all of our WordPress files to our Amazon S3 bucket. Now all of your files should be synced up with your Amazon S3 bucket and the WP Super Cache plugin should be serving all of your files through CloudFront. Both of those plugins will upload files directly to S3 and make sure they don’t reside on your own server; be sure to read the description for both to see how they work.

I can remember lying in the grass staring up at the sky when I was little and imagining all sorts of things as I looked at the clouds. It is a phrase used to define the use of the internet and remote servers to store and manage data. You can create and work on your document on the internet, and when you save it, the file is also saved on the internet. What these two services do is save files from your website onto Amazon’s remote servers, and serve these files to your user from multiple locations in the world to optimize loading time and file delivery, respectively. We are first going to click on “Create Bucket” to create the bucket for our WordPress site. We are going to be using a popular WordPress Plugin called W3 Total Cache because not only does the plugin have features for easily working with S3 (and any CDN for that matter), it does a great job of speeding up your website using the best caching techniques — describing the caching side of W3 Total Cache is outside the scope of this article, but you can find a great tutorial here. We are going to go in reverse order as we will be uploading our theme files first, then our wp-includes files, and lastly our host attachments.


You will see progress as the files upload, and also identify any problems that may have occurred in the upload process.
You activate the plugin by simply checking the “Caching On” radio button on the “Easy” tab of the WP Super Cache Settings. You can find this URL by navigating to the AWS Console and looking at the Distribution that you just created, and it will be under the “Domain Name” column. Your website should now be hosting all of its files from Amazon’s Simple Storage Service and distributing them through the CloudFront content delivery network using your preferred WordPress caching plugin.
Besides writing and web design, he loves to skateboard and snowboard, and has been doing both for 11 and 6 years respectively, although some would say it’s getting progressively harder for him to step away from his work and wander outside. Of course, while downloading it to your computer is always an option, most of what happens is on Google’s server. You only pay for what you use, which is what makes the services provided by Amazon so great. Here we are going to enter in our Access key ID, Secret key, and tell the plugin what S3 bucket we want to store our files in. Uploading is usually pretty quick, and should only take a minute or two, depending on your internet connection, to upload the theme files.
If you want to reduce the size of your images and consequently, the time it takes for them to upload to S3, I highly recommend checking out the WP Smush.it plugin. Vying the huge potential in online storage space, many cloud storage services are providing free storage to lure new customers.With free cloud storage services you can store your videos, music, movies, photos and files in the cloud for free and access them from anywhere on the go through internet. To find your Access key and Secret key, simply click your name when logged into the AWS Console, and click “Security Credentials” to receive the necessary information. Your data is safe with the cloud storage providers and you don’t run the risk of a crashed or stolen hard disk. The AWS Console is where you will manage any of the services you use, but for now we are just interested in S3, so go ahead and click that link. Once you have that information in, your buckets should automatically come up, so just make sure the correct one you want to use is selected. Listed below are the top 10 best free cloud storage services.Top 10 Best Free Cloud Storage Services1. Dropbox provides 2 GB of free cloud storage to every user and you can also earn upto 16 GB of additional free storage by referring Dropbox to your friends.
Google Drive: The cloud storage service from the search giant Google provides you with 15 GB of free storage which is shared among its various services like Gmail, Google Plus etc. Box: While Dropbox is popular among individuals, Box is popular among business and enterprise users. With a personal account you can only upload files smaller than 250 MB to the cloud which is a major inconvenience if you are looking to store movies or large files. Copy: Barracuda Networks, the computer data storage company has made a foray into the cloud storage space with Copy. Copy provides 15 GB of free cloud storage to every user and you also get a whopping 5 GB free space for every friend you refer. But, with the free account you miss out on the best features of ADrive like 16 GB file uploads and also have to bear with the ads on Android and iOS apps.6.
Bitcasa: Bitcasa is a cloud storage service that lays emphasis on the privacy of your data.
Bitcasa provides 20 GB of free cloud storage and you can access your data from 3 different devices.7.


In its attempt to gain a foothold in the industry and drive hundreds of millions of its customers to OneDrive, Microsoft is giving away 7 GB 15 GB of free cloud storage to its users.
You can get an additional 5 GB by referring your friends and 3 GB more by enabling photo backup.8.
SpiderOak: This is one more cloud storage service that lays more emphasis on your data privacy. SpiderOak provides a meager 2 GB of free cloud storage which can be expanded upto 10 GB by referring friends (you get 1 GB for every friend you refer to the service).9. Tencent Weiyun: Tencent is a very huge Chinese internet company that is offering a whopping 10 TB of free cloud storage to every new user! Qihoo 360 Yunpan (Cloud Drive): Qihoo 360 is a reputed Chinese internet security company that offers loads of free cloud storage space.
The Qihoo 360 Cloud Drive used to offer a whopping 36 TB (36864 GB!) free cloud storage space. Stop worrying about privacy and use this Chinese cloud storage service to dump non-private stuff.
So, share your opinion about these services and also are there any other services worth mentioning here? I’ve used Copy, then after time got not comfortable with their security and privacy, specially after I read their Privacy terms, I immediately quit.
February 22, 2015, 14:33Copy had some issues back in 2013, but all that stuff has been fixed since. Reply Link James February 23, 2015, 03:32Actually, all of the issues that I described happened in November of 2014. A person named Leland Ursu at copy was willing to give my password to someone else in November. From what i have seen so far, it’s the best service out there (unlimited referral storage, no upload size limit, owned by Barracuda, better than box and onedrive) . You start out with 20gb of free storage if you sign up from a referral link, and each peron you refer gets you 5gb more. Those providers who guarantee 100% security of your files should be your first priority Reply Link spooky October 2, 2014, 16:23I was wondering which of these services is ideal as the storage for torrent or download.
You can stream music from it, the desktop app allows you to paste a shortcut into your Copy sync folder and Copy will backup everything that the shortcut links to. Their Privacy Policy makes it sound like nobody will see your data unless it’s the FBI with a court order.
I used it and logged in and found all of my stuff was gone and someone else was using the account. Apparently you can send an email to them and ask for a manual reset to any account that you want and they will do it. Anyway to cut a long story i was asked to install two different media players, both of which have bad reputations. So I’m using the site still, but will be interested to see if i get asked to install anything again.
