Web OS and its advantagesTweet Bookmark this on Delicious
The emergence of cloud computing dominates the IT world and insists the organisations and individuals to move to the cloud with its proven successes in cost reduction, effectiveness and accessibility from anywhere in the world. For anybody who has several computers can have all in one place and do not have to carry the device wherever they go with a cloud-based OS. This article lists the top cloud-based operating systems and goes in finding the requirements as an user and apps developer since many of the cloud operating systems are open-source, discusses the availability of apps for the end users and highlights the advantages of moving to any cloud operating systems.The searches like what is cloud computing and how does it work are slowly going out of sight when the users have started enjoying the virtual storage and virtual apps that has given a grand welcome to the cloud operating systems like Cloud, Chrome OS, Joli OS, eyeOS, G.HO.ST, Glide OS and many more.
This concept of operating system on a browser turns your browser into a cloud OS with your existing hardware instead of buying a cloud-based netbook like chromebook. You can either use your local storage or cloud storage depending on your needs or you can have another copy in the local storage. With the cloud storage, you can either use the available virtual storage account with the cloud operating systems or integrate it to any cloud storage accounts like Dropbox, Sugarsync, Symform, Clouddrive, SkyDrive and other cloud services available. When you are using virtual applications running on a virtual server, you can forget about the disk space, any physical hardware associated to run them as well the software updates and you only have the icons or bookmarks to link to the virtual apps which makes the web OS different from a traditional OS. The only thing you need is to remember your username and password which makes you access your customised web OS from anywhere. One may ask, web operating systems can be used only when there is an internet coverage but you only run the web OS on the browser and you still have your OS, local storage and offline applications which is a major advantage over cloud-based netbooks which runs only the cloud OS and cannot live without internet connectivity.
