Unified Cloud Caching Interface
75% of IT executives expressed concern about security issue with cloud computing (ref: IDC Enterprise panel). Cloud computing means entrusting a data to a third party, hence, all security concerns about data are also handed over to the service provider. Can companies be sure that Cloud will take good care of their data?
Calsoft’s UCCI – Unified Cloud Caching Interface has overcome these issues with high performance caching component located at premises of the enterprise and communicates with outside cloud storage.
