How to use iCloud Drive
Much as you may have been satisfied with the way iCloud synced your data in the past, if you'd hoped for comprehensive file syncing between your Mac, iOS devices, and the cloud, you were likely frustrated. Prior to OS X 10.10 Yosemite, iCloud's file storage was sandboxed, meaning that you could only access files created with a specific application by that application. You could, for example, launch Pages and access the Pages files you stored in the cloud, but you couldn't use that same app to open TextEdit files stored in iCloud. Enter iCloud Drive. Taking its cue from Dropbox, which is a simple file repository accessible from any app, Apple has changed the way iCloud manages files.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Startup wants to make cloud attractive for security-sensitive businesses
After three years in stealth, an Andreessen Horowitz-backed startup named Bracket Computing launched a new computing system today that aims to make the public cloud more palatable for security-sensitive enterprises. Bracket uses what it refers to as "cells" that encapsulate an application and deploy it on to Amazon Web Service's or Google's IaaS public cloud. The system wraps the application with encryption and it automatically spreads the application out over multiple availability zones and regions to make it fault tolerant. + MORE AT NETWORK WORLD: Why EMC acquired Cisco's stake in VCE +To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
