The biggest benefits of a personal cloud are privacy and security. End user has a clear way to control the access and permissions. Whether you’re storing family photos or your business’ financial records, knowing who can see what is important.
Megatris Comp. approach to Personal Cloud is the Contextual Cloud.
A Personal Cloud can be the place of partnership between user (mobile) and cloud environment. We consider a personal cloud as an active one. Our vision comprehend a Companion shaped by its context models , instantiated contexts and programs and data applicable in such context. The presence of an active context provides an augmented cognition in the cloud services where the Companion establish the bridge between the user and the cloud. Augmented Cognition is a closed-loop systems to modulate information flow with respect to the user’s status and environment. Appropriate simulation augments the power of modeling and forecast allowing verification before deployment.
