KineticD Online Data Backup Expert Tips: Overcoming the Growing Pains of Convergence Technologies

For many of us, it seems that the Internet and all its myriad blessings have been around forever.  But, the truth is that, for all intents and purposes, the Internet as we know it, is still in its growing stages, with cloud computing, smart phones and other evolving technologies all slowly but surely coming together toward the ultimate goal of maximized technological convergence.  One of the biggest facilitators of this convergence continues to be online data backup companies, whose services have prompted many people’s first experiences with cloud computing, a process that truly takes major strides toward furthering the integration of our personal data and the Internet itself into a more amalgamated and efficient overall information exchange system.

However, regardless of all this new-found efficiency, growth of any technology always presents challenges, or “growing pains” if you will, to some extent.  Technological problems concerning cloud computing and online data backup do indeed spring up from time to time, with the best online backup companies, making sure to apply and/or create solutions to ensure that all of their customers get the most seamless service possible.  These problems can range from storage issues to data transmission concerns, and must be fervently addressed if the evolution of cloud computing is to continue keeping up with customer demands.

One of the most common problems that can arise when it comes to cloud computing and backing up your data online is network congestion, with some data backup companies having difficulty keeping up with their clients’ data transfer requirements during peak hours.  As a result, errors can end up occurring during transmission, or, in the event of server crashes, data loss can take place on the side of the backup company’s servers!  Even more of a challenge can occur for interactive cloud computing specialty companies, who often provide “virtual desktop” services, wherein a customer can log into their system from any computer and access all their files online through a virtualized desktop interface that must constantly update its state as the user interfaces with it, requiring consistent high levels of data exchange as a result.

Of course, overcoming the sort of problems mentioned above become easier and easier as the bandwidths provided by ISPs continue to expand in order to accommodate the increasing load of data transmission over online networks.  However, as these bandwidths grow, applications that tax these bandwidths also increase their rates of data exchange to capitalize on this new-found data transmission “real estate”, creating a balancing act that will probably continue to ebb and flow in the years to come.  When bandwidths are not sufficient to support these newly evolved technologies, users of cloud computing and online data backup can often notice the unfortunate result of data transmission slowdowns and bottlenecks.  Add to this the problem of latency, which will no doubt be a mounting challenge in the years to come as increased globalization continues to push us all to interact with more and more businesses and enterprises from around the world, making for longer distances for data to travel.  This is especially true for telephone and video call transactions, where close to real-time transmission is required for the technology to be realistically usable at all.

While it is true that advanced online data storage and cloud computing applications can bring about a whole host of challenges, we here at KineticD don’t think that you should have to worry about any of that.  After all, we are here to offer you the most dependable, easy-to-use backup and mobile computing services around.  That is why we work overtime to minimize latency and maximize bandwidth use efficiency using a whole host of innovative techniques, including bandwidth throttling during hours of peak congestion and our patented Continuous Backup process which insures that backup data is transferred at times that is both convenient and most efficient for both the performance of our servers and your company’s computers.  And, in the even that errors do occur, we’ve still got you covered with our state of the art methods of data packet reconstitution and re-sequencing, so that your backup will be transmitted correctly no matter what.  But, don’t just take our word for it; try our 14-day trial today and find out just how easy it is to protect and share your data with KineticD!
