A Smart Service for an Effective Management of Data in a Cloud Environment Using a Cloud Repository

    Cloud computing, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to PCs and other devices on demand. The cloud computing customers do not know, own and manage the underlining physical and software infrastructure needed to implement the provided services. They are only interested of getting data and services and use them.

    While getting the cloud services and data is simple and hides the cloud customer from the underlying complexity, there is no effective way to exchange data between the provided cloud services or, even more, to extend a cloud solution deployed by adding additional cloud services in a simple way.

    Today, the customer has to use common ways to exchange data or installing applications using protocols that require knowledge of user accounts, network configuration.

    The most common cloud repositories available in the market provide ways of storing the information in the cloud and synchronize the data with a set of user devices that can be smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs, virtual images or any other device with network connection.

    But the way how the data is managed and transferred to the devices is the same today for all the attached devices regardless their configuration or capability. What would be an improvement in terms of user experience, is a smart way of managing the data saved in the cloud based on several options like:

     - Device Location and sensors - SW Application installed in the device - User Information - Device Information
This is a missing functionality that can be a game changer for the future of the tablet/smartphone applications.

    In this context, a smart service to perform an effective data sharing in a cloud environment hiding the complexity of the physical environment and managing the different environment and device configurations matches these user experience improvements.

    The following system design, matching these considerations above, it can be configured as a CloudDrive, as an extension of the current local Clipboard in the Cloud Environment or as an extension of the Common Cloud Platform.

    A CloudDrive service allows the customer to share data and cloud services in a cloud environment.

    In fact, an important aspect of this approach is that cloud computing services are provided in simple and efficient way, but there is no way to extend them since the same approach, so hiding the complexity of installing...
