Title: Local or Cloud
Post by: CalLabSolutions on 11-21-2018 -- 17:33:54
I would like to know what percentage of the community likes or is willing to store their calibration data in the cloud.  Or does it have to be local to your company? 

I would love to hear your thoughts.

It's IM&TE calibration data, not propriety information.  I doubt the NSA or ISIS are dying to get their hands on the test data for a Simpson 260  :-o

Most calibration databases have a customer portal for them to login and download certificates.  What would be the benefits of utilizing the Cloud other than saving space?

The safety advantage of cloud storage is obvious, but propagation delay could cause problems.
 What I would prefer would be local, but with automatic mirroring or back-up to the cloud...
